Watch This 12-Year-Old Nail Tones And I’s ‘Dance Monkey’ During Her ‘AGT’ Audition

Annie Jones took the stage during Tuesday’s episode (June 23) of America’s Got Talent to audition with Tones and I’s “Dance Monkey.”

After admitting to judge Sofia Vergara that she was “a little” nervous, the 12-year-old singer stunned the audience with her take on her fellow Australian’s smash 2019 hit.

“Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, Oh-oh-oh/ Never seen anybody do the things you do before/ They say move for me, move for me, move for me, yeah-ah-ah/ When you’re done, I’ll make you do it all again/ All again,” the preteen delicately crooned before the beat dropped in and she began swaggering around the stage.

By song’s end, the crowd inside Pasadena’s Civic Auditorium was on its feet, with Jones earning standing ovations from not only Vergara but also her fellow judges Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel.

The 12-year-old is the latest in a parade of fellow young singers competing for the Season 15 trophy on the long-running talent show, including Kazakhstan native Danyelia Tuleshova, big-voiced 10-year-old Roberta Battaglia, and 12-year-old Ashley Marina, whom Cowell put through the ringer by making sing three different times during her audition.

Watch Jones’ pitch-perfect take on “Dance Monkey” below.
