She also spoke about getting feedback from substitute judge and singer Kelly Clarkson one week.

“It gives me a lot of strength for the next round … I am very excited.”

Earlier this summer, Battaglia wowed judges with a performance of the Oscar award-winning Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper duet Shallow — from 2018’s A Star is Born.

She was also the youngest contestant to receive the show’s golden buzzer, which is only allowed to be pressed once by each judge during the season.

This meant the Toronto singer was advanced into the quarterfinals from her earlier auditions.
