It seems that Glennis Grace’s impossible dream is a step closer to coming true, as she received a standing ovation from the America’s Got Talent-jury!

Little over a month ago, Glennis Grace revealed that she had been selected to audition in the new season of the popular TV-show America’s Got Talent.

The Dutch singer and 2005 Eurovision participant made her stage debut in the show and we got to see her performance before the judges and the audience. Glennis recently shared on her Facebook-page:

Celebrity jury members Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel were positively impressed by Glennis’ interpretation of Run to you, originally sung by her idol Whitney Houston. The singer showed nerve and talent, getting a standing ovation.

Of course, Glennis Grace is through to the next round of AGT!:
