A nine-year-old girl left America's Got Talent's judges stunned with her amazing rendition of Michael Bolton's 'How Am I Supposed To Live Without You' Tuesday night.

Celine Tam, from Hong Kong, first wowed the audience in June when she hit every high note in Celine Dion's My Heart Will Go On. The young singer also made quite an impact on the judges when she revealed her parents are such big fans of the Canadian singer, they named her Celine as a tribute to her while her little sister is called Dionne.

On Tuesday night, however, Celine departed from Dion's repertoire and opted to sing Bolton's 1989 hit—a choice that won guest judge Laverne Cox's heart.

Judges Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, Simon Cowell and Mel B clearly remembered Celine when she stepped onstage for the third round of judge cuts.

Klum wished her the best of luck, but it seemed unlikely from the very first notes of the song that Celine would need it.

The nine-year-old showed off her powerful voice as she made her way through the ballad, prompting the judges to smile in acknowledgement of her talent.

Even Cowell, known for being one of the harshest judges on television, watched with a look of slight disbelief as Celine completed her performance, apparently effortlessly.

Her parents and the rest of the audience gave her a standing ovation before Cox started raving about Celine's talents.

'I just want to eat you up and, like, take you home. You were so adorable and so cute and your voice is amazing!' Cox told the little girl. 'You are so talented.'
