The “Got Talent” franchise is massive. What started off as something in North America, through the popular TV series “America’s Got Talent” has now taken over the global, TV scene. There is a “Got Talent” show in almost every country now, and it’s needless to say that it recruits some of the most talented people to come on stage and take a stab at winning all the glory.
Talents come from far and wide to audition for these shows, every year. People from all walks of life show up on the day of the audition, ready to prove to the judges, as well as the world, that they’re talent is worth a shot to believe in, and they have to be as convincing as possible on stage — you only get one shot so you have to make it count.
Paula Jiven is one such teen; she was determined to audition for “Sweden’s Got Talent 2018.” Paula is a singer, and she proves to be a capable force that you do not want to reckon with. As soon as she hits the first note, the hosts backstage are blown away by what they’re listening to. You don’t think that someone this young can take on the song that she said she was going to sing. It’s impossible not to be left standing there in disbelief.
She sits on the piano, giving music to her own performance, as she sings everyone’s favorite, classic song “Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson. Paula smiles throughout her routine, knowing that she is striking that special chord with the judges and her audience. She knows she’s here to stay, and that she just proved it to everyone in the room. Her confidence is oozing out of her as she sings each word of the song, putting a unique twist on this classic, and making it her own.
It’s not easy to do justice to an MJ classic, but watch the judges’ reaction as Paula wraps up the song. They are beside themselves, speechless, and on their feet. This act was definitely worth a standing ovation because you don’t see routines like this one all the time. We’re sure that Paula’s family and fans are extremely proud of what she accomplished in that audition room that day.
