In the video that the YouTube channel of “American Idol” uploaded, Layla and her sister appeared walking toward the middle of the stage while Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan, and Katy Perry were amazed by the younger sister’s cuteness.

Both girls introduced themselves, saying their age and that they were from Kentucky. When Katy heard that Dyxie was only seven, she wondered if there was an age restriction in the show.

Layla quickly explained that her sister was there just to sing a short song for them and that she was the real contestant, so the judges encouraged them to sing.

Dyxie started her rendition of LeAnn Rimes’ “Blue,” and she did a very good job. As a way to help her keep her dream of becoming a musician alive, the judges gave her a golden ticket to Hollywood only to be valid in 2026, when the young lady is 15 years old.

ANOTHER PRESENTATION FROM A YOUNG GIRL

Sophie Fatu is a five-year-old girl who went to “America’s Got Talent” to show her singing skills to the judges and the audience.

Sophie pointed out that she didn’t care about the $1-million prize because all she wanted to was singing and making people happy.

Things were even more shocking when Frank Sinatra’s hit song “New York, New York” began playing. The girl did a wonderful job, receiving praises and a standing ovation from everyone in the theater.
