Viewers met 5-year-old Sophie Fatu during the audition rounds of America's Got Talent and were charmed by her spunky personality and surprisingly good pipes for a kid her age. She sang Frank Sinatra's "My Way," and it was really, really cute.
Now she's back for Tuesday's Judges Cuts episode, and she's doing another classic by the Chairman of the Board. But what happens before she sings is even better, and TV Guide has an exclusive clip.
"What would you do with one million dollars?" Simon Cowell asks her.
"I don't really care about money," she says in her little doll voice. "I just wanna sing for everyone and make them happy." Everyone in the studio audience goes "awwww" before bursting into applause.
"Does that mean, Sophie," Cowell says, "if you win, we don't need to give you the million dollars?"
"Yes," she says.
"Okay, well, then I really hope you do well," Cowell says with a smile.
Then she launches into "New York, New York," and it's just so adorable to see this tiny kid singing these old man songs. And she's got genuine talent.
America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC.
