Myra Tran American Idol Audition Video

This 19-Year-Old's Chilling Cover of "One Night Only" Had EVERY American Idol Judge in Awe

World, meet Myra Tran: a 19-year-old Vietnamese singer with a serious set of pipes. During the season 17 premiere of American Idol, the young woman belted out Jennifer Hudson's "One Night Only" in front of judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan, and not one of them could believe their ears. If you blindfolded us, we would easily say this was a clip from the 2006 remake of Dreamgirls, but nope, just a 19-year-old with a palpable dream.

It was no question that Tran was getting a ticket to Hollywood, but the advice the judges gave brought her to tears. "You're up there with the Kelly Clarksons of the world," Bryan said, leaving Tran shaking. Perry added, "You just need to keep singing, because if you keep singing, you're really going to connect with people. I think we can really feel who you are through the music. Music transcends language barriers, and you just showed us that."

Watch her audition above, but be warned: you're guaranteed to get chills.
