Emanne Beasha (Arabic: إيمان بيشة‎; born 18 September 2008)[1] is an American-Jordanian singer of Circassian descent. She is the winner of the fifth season of the program Arabs Got Talent[2] and finished in 9th place on fourteenth Season of America's Got Talent.[3][4]


Beasha was born in Amman and started to sing opera,[5] (from the age of six) in Italian,[6] Her parents discovered her talent as a two-year-old in Jordan.[7]

Beasha received the King Abdullah II Ibn Al Hussein Medal of Merit (Gold) from King Abdullah II during independence day celebrations in Raghadan Palace on 25 May 2017.[8]

Beasha auditioned for Season 14 of America's Got Talent in 2019. She sang "Nessun dorma." The performance was favorably received. Simon Cowell called it "absolutely fantastic." Beasha received four yesses from the judges to advance past the auditions to the Judge Cuts round.[9]

On August 6, 2019, Beasha appeared on the fourth episode of America’s Got Talent’s Judge Cuts with guest judge Jay Leno. Beasha performed the opera-style song "Caruso" by the Italian pop singer Lucio Dalla and received Leno’s golden buzzer, which qualified her to move on to compete in the quarter-finals live shows.[10]

On August 27, 2019, Emanne sang "Ebben? Ne Andro Lontana" ("Well then? I'll Go Far away") from the opera "La Wally" for her appearance in the Quarter Finals of America's Got Talent. America voted, and Emanne moved to the semi-finals.[11] In the semi-finals, she performed the Italian version of (Everything I Do) I Do It for You by Bryan Adams, received favorable reviews from the judges and advanced to the finals in the Judges' Choice.[3][4] In the finals, Beasha sang "La mamma morta" from Umberto Giordano's opera Andrea Chénier. On the night that the results were announced, she performed Andrea Bocelli's "Con te partirò" alongside pianist Lang Lang. At the end, she was not in the Top 5 acts and finished in 9th place.[12] Beasha will be joining Andre Rieu on the North American leg of his world tour in March 2020.
