Many adults would break under the pressure Simon Cowell put on 12-year-old Ansley Burns during her America's Got Talent audition, but she took his challenge in stride. The South Carolina native put her vocal chops on display for judges Cowell, Julianne Hough, Gabrielle Union, and Howie Mandel in a preview for Tuesday's episode, but things took an unexpected turn halfway through her rendition of Aretha Franklin's "Think."
"Overall this ranking of Asia's best 300 universities proves what a dynamic, diverse and competitive higher education region the continent is becoming -- and China is a key part of that development," said Baty.
It is the first time since 2001 that an athlete other than Mayweather Jnr or golfer Tiger Woods topped the earning league.
The preteen looked momentarily caught off guard by the request, but after a sip of water, she stepped up to the plate. Watch Burns's full performance above to see how she fared without her music. Spoiler: She may have earned a thumbs-up from the hard-to-please Cowell.
