Charlotte Summers performs on 'America's Got Talent 2019'

The 2019 season of America's Got Talent is loaded with talented youngsters. Charlotte Summers is one of them. 

The Spanish teen caught the singing bug when she watched AGT as a seven year old. Today, she’s living the dream.  

On Tuesday night's episode, the 13-year-old stepped on up and nailed a bluesy rendition of Lesley Gore’s feminist anthem from the early ‘60s, “You Don't Own Me.” 

“Interesting choice for a song,” noted guest judge Jay Leno. “This is a song about a woman who’s going to do what she wants, when she wants it. I was blown away.”

Simon Cowell was also impressed. "We asked all these earlier acts why they’re so nervous. Now I understand because they’ve heard you and, it’s like, I might as well give up now,” he quipped. “There’s a real rawness to you, which I love. This is great. I’m really happy.”

Summers was happy too. Watch the performance below.
