Nick Cannon Reveals His All-Time Favorite ‘America’s Got Talent’ Contestant, And The Answer Might Surprise You
From the extraordinary to the extreme, America’s Got Talent has hosted a whole range of performers since premiering on NBC in 2006.In honor of the show’s upcoming 10th season, we asked host Nick Cannon to reveal his all-time favorite contestant from the competition series during a round of People’s Choice Against the Clock.
Though Cannon has seen many big acts take the AGT stage, when it came time to pick a favorite he went small — 10-years-old to be exact. The host said opera singer Jackie Evancho, who was 10 when she appeared on the show in season five, stood out amongst the pack.
“She’s gone on to be the biggest star,” said Cannon of the pint-sized contestant during the NBC Upfronts in May.
Though Evancho actually went on to finish in second place, fans of America’s Got Talent will of course remember the young singer for her incredible renditions of opera songs like “O Mio Babbino Caro”.
So what other America’s Got Talent secrets did show host Nick Cannon dish on? You’ll just have to watch him play Against The Clock above to find out!
