Has 'America's Got Talent' just discovered the next child star? 

A nine-year-old named Pranysqa Mishra impressed the judges with her amazing rendition of a Tina Turner song released nearly 60 years ago. 

Pranysqa belted out 'River Deep—Mountain High' with such confidence and talent that she received the Golden Buzzer, which sent her straight to the live round of the competition.

Judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Sofia Vergara, and Howie Mandel gave the tween a standing ovation.

"Oh my gosh! We expect a lot of things but I did not expect that," Heidi, who ultimately pressed the Golden Buzzer button, said.  

The German supermodel didn't even give the other judges a change to give her a thumbs up or down. 

"You know what I am going to do now because I honestly don't want to hear what Howie, Simon or Sofia have to say. I want you to call your grandmother and tell her that Heidi Klum pushed the Golden Buzzer for you."

Pranysqa says she has always loved singing because it makes her happy. 

"When I was four years old, I would pretend like I have a microphone and sing like I am singing to the whole world. My grandma always tells me to sing my heart out and that I will be one day on that big stage," she said before taking to the stage. 

Pranysqa revealed that her biggest role models are Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, and Whitney Houston

She admitted that she was nervous about singing in front of Simon, who is known to tell it like it is. But she clearly had nothing to worry about because she was an amazing young talent.

Viewers at home were just as impressed. 

"How is she 9 with that much control! The maturity and seasoning on her voice already! Her runs, her mixed belting into runs, her switching from head voice to belting was pretty amazing! She is a star! Being a powerhouse at 9, imagine at 20, my lord!" one YouTuber wrote.

Another user wrote: "Imagine what this girl is going to sound like in 10 years. She could actually be a superstar. Haven’t felt that floored from a kid singer since Angelica Hale. Rooting for her and a deserved golden buzzer!"
