When Simone entered her audition, the judges could not believe she was only 15. In fact, Harry Connick, Jr. said she looked 25. He meant it as a compliment, though, as the contestant came off as beautifully put together and mature.

As the panel remained stunned, Simone sang The Jackson 5’s "Who’s Loving You." Afterward, they again marveled over her age in disbelief. Jennifer Lopez even said, "She don’t sing 15, either. What the heck is going on?!"

Connick even went on to tell Simone, “I think you showed us such a complete variety of skills. You covered all the bases. You sang beautifully.” Lopez said the “special quality” in the teen’s voice that is “not normal,” “that you don’t hear with just everybody who can sing."

Keith Urban then chimed in, saying, "I totally agree. Really unique, too." When Lopez called for a vote, Urban actually asked, "Is there something higher than yes?" After getting her ticket in Hollywood, Simone said "I’ve been watching this show since I was a little girl, since I was 5 years old, so to finally make the age cut on the last season, it’s a blessing."
