Will Jackie Evancho Make It to the Next Round of 'America's Got Talent'?Welcome back to 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC). Sometimes, this seems like the most protracted, longest-running reality show in the history of the world. No offense, but at certain points, we kind of wonder if we're ever going to reach the finals. But maybe that's just us.

[Spoiler alert.]

At any rate, on tonight's episode, we get to learn the names of four more semi-finalists. But there's only one person that we really care about; and that's Jackie Evancho.

Sorry to be so partisan here, but we're completely on Team Jackie. The 10-year-old girl is kind of the best singer ever, and we want to see her make it to the finals. We can't hide our support for her; she's awesome. But yes, in non-Jackie-related-news, some other acts got moved along tonight -- including goth magician Dan Sperry and Maestro Alexander Bui.

But we just want to know ... will Jackie make it?

My major problem with Shows like Talent, Idols and so on is that it is not always the best that wins, it all depends upon having or developing a big following so you can get the most votes.
There was a young man last season with a great voice who did not get through as much. Again with talents there are so many differant kinds of act how do you choice between a singer and a knife thrower.
Then Jackie is very young, her voice has not developed as it will. It will change. Do we encourge these who are really too young to strain them selves now? I don't know much about her back ground, but most singer who sing as she is doing have years and years of voice lessions. She is too young to have many if any.

I love Sharon Osborne but I do wish she would stop saying to a contestant who has put their heart and soul and dreams on the line here.."I hate a'capella".."I hate classical music--. Cant you play some kind of pop"......It isn't about her personal taste but more about an evaluation on a objective perspective of someones talent rather than a subjective one. Shut up sharon and stop being a pr--ck

I guess Ozzie rubbed off on her.

This little girl is like a breath of fresh air. However, can it be possible for an underage child of 10 to have her own show in Vegas???? I dont think so. Therefore the prize should go to someone who has worked long and hard to get to this point. Jackie is a star and Jackie will have a long and glorious career whether she wins or loses on AGT.

Look very carefully at the video and watch Jackie's face. If you know anything about singing, there should be little to no tension around the mouth or neck area. Her voice is not natural. She is trying to imitate an adult sounding, operatic voice which could permanently damage her voice.
