Representatives from NBC’s America’s Got Talent stated categorically denied rumors that singing sensation Jackie Evancho was lip-synching during last week’s show. Evancho’s amazing performance became an instant viral hit on YouTube, and she is being compared to Britain's Got Talent superstar Susan Boyle.
The 10-year-old opera singing sensation drew a standing ovation from the show’s crowd in Hollywood, and she mesmerized the millions of viewers watching from their homes. However, her performance also drew harsh criticism and skepticism across the Internet.
Critics claimed she was lip-synching and said her mouth movement and breathing patterns were not lining up perfectly with the audio on their television. Other cynics started attacking Jackie's parents alleging they pushed the child too hard to be in the limelight once they spotted her talent.
Industry insiders are coming to her defense saying she is a child prodigy that was born with the gift and her voice is not just one in a million, it is probably one in five million.
