Angelina Jordan Astar astounded judges on Norway’s Got Talent with her pitch perfect cover of Billie Holiday’s Gloomy Sunday – as she’s only 7-years-old.
The cute young singer won a standing ovation after her incredible rendition of the jazz classic on the show.
Angelina, who has been taking singing lessons for four years, told a Norwegian television station that she ‘understood [the song] very well’.

She added: ‘I felt something special about it, it’s hard to explain in words. When I sang it for my mum, she said that this song is nice, but it was incredibly sad song.’
Angelina counts Julie London, Nancy Sinatra and Shirley Bassey as her favorite artists.
Check out the video to watch a 7-year-old belt out the world weary essence of a heartbroken, middle-aged woman. It’s pretty amazing.
