Nine-year-old girl shines in Holland's Got Talent

A nine-year-old girl has risen to fame after an appearance on Holland's Got Talent.

A nine-year-old girl left judges and crowds stunned after a phenomenal singing appearance on Holland's Got Talent.

The crowd was not expecting much from the diminutive, yet confident, Amira Willighagen. 

But they were truly blown away once she started to sing, in a moment reminiscent of Susan Boyle on the British version of the show.

Like Boyle's experience, the video of Amira's unexpectedly amazing voice is rapidly making its way around the Internet.

Her rendition of Puccini's "O Mio Babbino Caro" from the opera Gianni Schicchi earned the nine year old from Nijmegen a golden ticket from the judges.

This means Amira will skip the heats and go straight through to the live rounds.

"This is not normal," commented judge Gordon Heuckeroth as he listened to Amira sing. "It is unbelievable, really."
