You never know what impressive performers you will see on ‘America’s Got Talent.’ It is fascinating to hear the many unique singers that ‘AGT’ welcomes to the competition. However, one audition features a woman with many voices in the same body!
Judge Heidi Klum welcomes 23-year-old singer Merissa Beddows to the stage. She walks onto the stage smiling and excited and tells the judges that she is from New York and studies at the Curtis Institute of Music.
Merissa tells the judges that she sings opera. She tells Heidi that there’s a dice with 6 sides representing six impressions. She tells her to roll it while she sings ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow.’ The first roll yields an Arianna Grande impersonation from Merissa. The crowd is in absolute shock!
Then, the impersonation dice calls for ‘Grandma,’ and Merissa brings out eyeglasses and sings while reading a paper up close, changing her voice again to a soft, elderly voice, amazing the audience.
Stevie Nicks is the next impression, and she sings with a powerful vibrato, sounding just like the ‘Fleetwood Mac’ vocalist. Heidi yells out ‘Celine Dion,’ and Merissa switches again with laser-like precision.
The crowd applauds with a roar of approval. She sings as Snow White, and the crowd laughs. Then, Heidi calls out ‘Siri,’ and Merissa sings precisely like the well-known app.
There are talented singers and impersonators, but rarely can a person impersonate more than one famous singer or voice. Merissa nails it and mesmerizes the judges and the studio audience on ‘AGT.’
