If the Got Talent franchise has taught us anything, it’s not to judge people’s abilities based upon their age or what they look like when they walk on stage. This video is the perfect example of why not.
When 14-year-old Iveta Tumasonyte stepped on the stage for Ireland’s Got Talent, she looked like a typical teenager, right down to the braces on her teeth. When she said she was going to sing Lady Gaga’s “I’ll Never Love Again”, the judges were a little skeptical: “That’s a big song, Iveta, for a 14-year-old.”
The song is a single from the 2018 film A Star is Born. It was written by Lady Gaga, Natalie Hemby, Hillary Lindsey and Aaron Raitiere. It’s what’s called a power ballad, with powerhouse verses that require a singer to really belt them out.
But Iveta didn’t plan on letting that get in her way. She belts out a memorable version that brings the crowd and the judges to their feet–and scores her the coveted Golden Buzzer. Watch the heartwarming video below and please leave us a Facebook comment to let us know what you thought!
