This young girl was afraid of neither. Bianca walks out on stage with undeniable confidence in herself and her song choice, and when asked what song she was going to be auditioning with, the former judge Brandy Norwood said, “That’s a big song, mama.”

The song she chose was, And I am Telling You I’m Not Going by Jennifer Holliday—one of the hardest songs to sing according to the next incredible woman who sang it later in the movie remake of “Dreamgirls,” Jennifer Hudson.

Despite the incredibly high notes she had to belt, and the control it took to sing them well, she did it, much to everyone’s surprise. Her performance was sassy and entertaining—a great match for an 11-year-old girl.

The audience was on their feet by the end, and this includes the judges. Well, Judge Brandy was up halfway through the performance—that’s how Bianca was.

The comments she got were all praise. Everyone told her that she did an amazing job, and when it came to voting if she was going to go through—they didn’t. They simply said that there was no point in voting and to just go because she’d made it to the next round.
