Youngest-ever 'AGT' performer stole the show with amazing rendition of Frank Sinatra hit
Five-year-old Sophie Fatu stunned the judges and the crowd on America’s Got Talent when she sang Frank Sinatra’s classic, New York, New York.
She is only five but she can already control her singing voice well. The judges’ jaws dropped the moment she started singing.
Little Sophie looked comfortable as she sang on the America’s Got Talent stage. Perhaps because she has already given great performances on Ellen and Little Big Shots.
Although, she really received major attention when she appeared on the hit talent competition since she was the youngest performer ever on the show.

Nothing... I mean nothing can top this.@franksinatra official page just posted about Sophie and my heart literally stopped and I’m all in tears!

Cowell, who is known for his grumpy attitude, even smiled while Sophie was performing.
By the end of her performance, he complimented the young tot.
He said to Sophie, "You shouldn’t even be able to remember the words, let alone sing like that with the key change and everything. Amazing.”
"When you hold onto those long notes you have like a really rich vibrato, which is so strange I’m even saying that because you’re only five," added Mel B.
Unfortunately, Sophie did not advance to the live shows. Although, she was very happy with her brief, yet remarkable, performance.
On Sophie’s Twitter account, a snippet of her performance on the show was posted and on the caption, it read, ‘Best moment of my life.’
