Arielle Baril Earns Golden Buzzer With Opera Audition on America’s Got Talent 10 (VIDEO)
Arielle Baril earned judge Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer with an opera audition on America’s Got Talent 10!
Arielle from Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania, and she’s 11 years old. She’s always loved to sing, and her mother has always supported her. Ariel is super nervous, but she’s also really excited to perform. She notes that her brother taught her and trained her to sing, and it all just blossomed from there.
I thought this was one of the biggest surprises of the audition rounds, because she came across as a total pop singer in the making in her VT, but she delivers this absolutely GORGEOUS, soaring operatic vocal once she’s onstage. It was otherworldly, to such an extent that it almost looks like she’s lip-syncing, because it’s so hard to believe the voice matches the appearance. But you can see the technique in what she’s doing, and there are subtleties in her vocal that pretty much rule out lip-syncing for me. Opera isn’t my cup of tea, but this was the audition of the night, in my opinion. Heidi gives her a standing ovation and the audience follows suit, bringing Arielle to tears.
After the performance, Heidi announces that she loved Arielle so much that she’s sending her straight to Radio City Music Hall. Arielle breaks down in tears as the golden confetti rains down, and her mother is crying backstage. Heidi comes up onstage, hugs Arielle, and tells her that the girl made her hair stand on end. Backstage, Arielle’s mother breaks the good news to their family, and the person on the other end goes crazy. An awesome moment to cap off an awesome audition.
