"It's a bit like being plucked from obscurity," Boyle said of the experience. "I don’t want it to end."
And while there are still no recluse-turned-super stars on this season, Wednesday's show proved there's something about saving the best for last.
Ciana Pelekai, a confident and precocious 8-year-old vocalist from Hawaii, said she'd put the $1 million prize toward a house for their family. Singing since the age of 4, Ciana said, "I just copied my sister. She was singing, so I copied her!" The audience swooned when Ciana took the stage, launching into "At Last" by Etta James. Judge Piers Morgan praised Ciana and implied strongly she could win the competition. "You have an amazing voice," he said.
The Beale Street Flippers were a fun act of pure physicality. The four friends from Memphis started flipping as a way to avoid gangs and drugs. Eager to do something different, they flipped effortlessly in circles around each other to Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean" -- and even did the moonwalk. Before sending them to the next round, the judges made sure to say the performance was "flipping incredbile."
