She may only be 14-years-old, but Angelina Jordan is one truly talented singer!

The teenager from Norway completely wowed the audience of America's Got Talent: The Champions with her soulful, stripped-down rendition of Elton John's 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' - receiving a standing ovation from all four judges!

Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Alesha Dixon, and Howie Mandel were all left with dropped-jaws during the show's finals, with Cowell saying: "What I loved about tonight was number one, you took a risk, and secondly, I'm gonna remember this performance for years and years and years to come.

"You didn't do what other people would normally do in this situation. You took that song but you made it sound current, relevant. You’ve made this final way, way better because you’ve set a real standard here. Great soul, great talent."

While Dixon said: "You're like an old soul trapped in a young person's body. Oh my goodness, it was beautifully delicate. You drew us all in. We were holding on to every single word that you sang. It was just gorgeous. I really hope the superfans vote for you, because I would vote for you. You're incredible."

"At any age, but especially 14, this is so amazing. One word comes to mind when I listen to you and that's hypnotic. I just get drawn into your sound and your performance, and nothing else going on around me even matters. It's just all about you. You truly are a champion," Mandel gushed.

The performance confirmed why judge Klum lavished her with a Golden Buzzer weeks ago, with the former model adding: "You make your Golden Buzzer mama so proud.

"I can feel it all the way down into my bones that you are a superstar in the making. I mean, seeing it right in front of our eyes — the melancholy that you put into that Elton John song was incredible. You are so good and I'm so excited for you."

Despite her age, Jordan is no stranger to the spotlight. In 2014, she won Norway's Got Talent, when she was just seven-years-old.
