Arizona's Evie Clair delivers emotional final performance on 'America's Got Talent'

Darci Lynne Farmer Gets Support from Miss Louisiana Laryssa Bonacquisti In The Cutest Way!

Evie has dedicated all of her vocal performances on the show this season to her father, including her emotional renditions of "Yours" by Ella Henderson and "Arms" by Christina Perri, which was her initial Season 12 audition song. The 13-year-old aspiring singer, songwriter and pianist has been in mourning for less than two weeks following her dad's September 7 death from cancer, but according to her mother Hillary Mann Abplanalp, the AGT finalist intends to continue with the NBC reality talent competition. Complete with props of waterfalls on stage, she ended her performance hitting the final notes of the song perfectly.

Recently on the show, Evie returned to perform a somber version of the Louis Armstrong classic "What A Wonderful World", dedicating it once again to her father who died in early September.

Singer Kechi survived a horrific plane crash and burns over her entire body to make it to the AGT finals. "I'd rather stand tall", she sang, "then live on my knees/ 'Cause I am a conqueror, and I won't accept defeat". Her performance earned a standing ovation from all four judges.

She sang along with live violin instrumentals being played in the background. And this is a very dark time in your life. I'm going to tell you how I respect you, how much strength you have. "That's why I'm fighting to the end, just like he did".

A few days prior to the "America's Got Talent" #Grand Finals, there were a few cliffhanger moments featuring one of the finalists, Evie Clair.
