11-year-old Bianca Ryan walked on stage with confidence and told the judges what she was going to sing. After doing so, the judges were sceptical and told her that she would not be able to sing that particular song. As soon as she opened her mouth, the judges eat their words and took it back. She left the judges shocked with their jaws wide open and dropped.
Her song choice, “And I Am Telling You I Am Not Going” by Jennifer Holliday is considered hard because of the notes required to sing it. Many professionals singers even have troubles with the song, as their voice range does not stretch as far required for the song. The style also required needs to be bold and full of soul, which Bianca clearly delivered.
