America’s Got Talent: All Stars final performances are set for Monday. The Top 11 artists will take the stage, hoping the “superfans” choose them as the ultimate winner.

In a preview from NBC, young Ana-Maria M?rgean performs “I Put a Spell on You” with her puppet. This time Ana-Maria brings along her “mentor and vocal coach” named “Miss Know-it-all.” She’s a typical biddy, barking out instructions to her protege such as “enunciate please!”

As Ana-Maria attempts to sing “I Put a Spell on You,” her teacher interrupts to criticize her singing. “You should sing it from your heart,” she suggests, before demonstrating. She sings like Ana-Maria, only nasally. They finish the song together.

Ana-Maria can’t believe she went farther than her hero Terry Fator

Judge Heidi Klum calls the performance “flawless,” adding “and you did it even without moving your lips!” Ana-Maria can’t believe she went further in the competition than her hero, Terry Fator, whom the “superfans” did not vote through to the finale. “I still can’t believe it, it’s just unbelievable,” she says.

Howie Mandel quips, “If Ariana Grande was Romanian and 14 years old with a puppet I think that’s what we’re watching!” A few years ago, Ana-Maria won the Romanian version of Got Talent and became a star in her home country. The judge marvels at her ability to entertain an English speaking audience in America.

Simon Cowell thinks the act just got “better and better and better” as the performance continued. He adds, “There’s a massive market for someone with your talent and you really deserve to be here.”

The America’s Got Talent: All Stars Top 11 final airs on NBC Monday Feb 20 at 8 pm. The results will be revealed on the star-studded finale airing Monday Feb. 27. Adam Lambert, Terry Fator, Lindsey Stirling and more will perform.
