10-Year-Old Singing Sensation Raises Goosebumps and Suspicions

You never know what's going to come out of a kid's mouth.

From "Britain's Got Talent" we got Susan Boyle, and now from "America's Got Talent" we got a pint-sized kid singing Puccini.

But the minute 10-year-old Jackie Evancho finished, the doubters started. "absolutely positively lip synching fake" read a typical post.

One conspiracy theorist wrote that after investigating the claims, he concluded Jackie's older brother was the actual vocalist.

Glen Seven Allen, a voice coach, spoke via Skype from where he was performing at the Bard Summerscape Festival.

“She's absolutely not lip syncing,” says Allen, “because I can literally see the vibration of sound in her face and you can hear her breathing.”

On Wednesday night as Jackie made it into the semifinals, Judge Howie Mandell addressed the lip-synching rumors and comments he'd heard when he asked her to sing just one note without music.
