“You are amazing! You are absolutely amazing. You were talking about how happy you are when you sing. You make me so happy when I sit here hearing you sing,” Klum told the 10-year old Rosalita.

“You are so dapper. I have to tell you, I was the biggest fan of Whitney Houston and you really just did her proud. It was amazing! Good for you,” she added.

Meanwhile, a surprised Vergara couldn’t believe the power behind Rosalita’s voice.

“You’re so tiny but you have this voice that’s unbelievable. The way you commanded the stage tonight was breathtaking,” Vergara said.

Rosalita’s confidence and enthusiasm to perform on a big platform as a ten-year-old was applauded by Cowell.

“In my opinion, you’re gonna sail through to the next round. When you do, choose a song next time that doesn’t feel like your mom has chosen it,” Cowell said.

“Because you’re so good, so talented. I want to hear you do something younger next time. But don’t get me wrong. That was a fantastic performance,” he added.

Rosalita, along with 1aChord, Gina Brillon, Jimmie Herrod, Dustin Tavella, Kabir Singh, and Madilyn Bailey, advanced to the semi-finals.
