Roberta Battaglia doesn’t get nervous.

The 10-year-old Canadian singer, who recently made it to the semi-finals of America’s Got Talent, spoke with the hosts of The Morning Show on Global News about her limited stage fright.

When asked if she got nervous performing in front of celebrity judges and a large audience, Battaglia didn’t budge.

“I really never had those nerves … people think I had those nerves,” she said.

A few performances ago, Battaglia was seen tearing up in front of judges and instead of linking it nerves, the singer said it was nothing but “tears of joy.”

She also spoke about getting feedback from substitute judge and singer Kelly Clarkson one week.

“It gives me a lot of strength for the next round … I am very excited.”

Earlier this summer, Battaglia wowed judges with a performance of the Oscar award-winning Lady Gaga/Bradley Cooper duet Shallow — from 2018’s A Star is Born.

She was also the youngest contestant to receive the show’s golden buzzer, which is only allowed to be pressed once by each judge during the season.

This meant the Toronto singer was advanced into the quarterfinals from her earlier auditions.
