She was singing during the commercial break, but her voice was so outstanding Simon pulled her onstage. I’ve never been so moved watching an audition, she is a little superstar.
Simon Cowell just went to grab a cup of coffee (tea?) during break and as soon as he came back, the crowd was roaring for a little girl singing her heart out in the audience.
She’s always been a fan of the show, and has always wanted to audition.
Simon asks her to come forward and as soon as introductions were made, he asks her to sing again this time on stage.
And everyone, including Maddie’s dad, wanted her to do so.
Maddie serenaded the audience with an impressive a cappella rendition of “Amazing Grace”.
That’s what got Sofia, Heidi, and Howie turning around in their seats and Simon coming out in shock.
“We do ask people in the breaks if they’d like to sing a song and I was literally just coming back in and I heard this voice, thinking, ‘Who the hell is that?’” Cowell said. “And then I see this little thing in the audience and it’s you.”
“I’ve been to many tapings, and ever since I was 4 years old, I would always try and sing for the commercial breaks,” Maddie said. “And it’s always been my dream to be on the show. And I’m finally here.”
