    I mean, by the lowers standards that we hold kids to, it was still just okay. Nobody would pay to hear her sing. I've seen too many kids on these shows now who _are_ amazing by adult standards. It's hard to get excited because a kid can sort of carry a tune.

      @alexmcginness Yeah maybe but we baby people too much today. She handled it perfectly fine and it made her better in the long run. Pressure isn't for everyone.

    I see the key tone wasn't fit(too low) to her voice(she has a high tone) so that's why Simon said this track was horrible.

  • TheReasonableAmericans

    Lot of extreme facial expressions from a show that's fake and choreographed. Kinda funny. The entire thing, the backing track, the water and the "well that just happened" comment. All fake and scripted. These TV shows are really pathetic these days. Gosh what if we just let the talent be and stopped the non-sense. Crazy thought.

  •  7 days ago +1

    She is the cutest little thing with the voice of a giant and the courage to match. It took a lot of fortitude and courage to compose herself and then deliver the knockout. I'm 41 yrs old. If Simon had stopped me mid verse and then requested I sing acapella. (I wish spell check would show me how to spell acapela instead of just letting me know it's wrong.) I would have crapped my pants then passed out. Or maybe I would have passed out first, THEN crapped my pants. Either way, It would have culminated in me, Asleep on stage with a pant load of crap. But she nailed it.

  • Philip Marsh

    The title to this video is so far from correct its not even funny. Simon said the backing track was terrible. To me her voice wasn't big enough to go with the track. Then he has her sing a cappella and I'm sorry but she didn't sound good at all. Franklin songs are some of the hardest songs to sing because she had such a powerhouse voice. I've heard some outstanding child singers but this isn't one of them.

  • Jason Tidd

    I love Ansley Burns I can hear some similarities too Courtney Hadwin if this girl loves that kind of music cause how great her voice is right now it doesn't sound like a pop song voice so I do hope she sings the older rock n roll music

    So gotta admit I thought Simon was being mean at first and was ready to punch him in the face from my mind. But when I seen what he really did he blew me away! He raised that little girl up to a higher level! And that little gal didn't break, even before a huge venue. I was blown away buy her little pipes! Thanks Simon for what you did for her!
