Evie Clair performed an original song called “Okay Day” on the “America’s Got Talent” season 12 finale on Wednesday. She also sang with James Arthur. Watch the video below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Clair sang “What A Wonderful World” for the “AGT” finals on Tuesday. She chose the song in honor of her late father, who died just two weeks ago. The classic track was among his favorites, and the 13-year-old was understandably emotional after nailing the performance. You could hear a pin drop as she sang, and all of the judges gave a standing ovation afterward.

Howie Mandel told the grieving contestant, “I cannot believe the strength I’m seeing in a young girl… Your voice and your song and your presence here is that light at the end of the tunnel.” Mel B said, “I know your dad’s up there looking down, and he must be so, so proud. What you just did is beautiful.” Heidi Klum also told Clair, “I can’t even imagine what you and your family must be going through right now, and I just want to say you are one brave young lady and one amazing singer.” And Cowell admitted, “I’m not going to judge you.”

Instead, the music mogul told the aspiring star, “I am going to tell you how much I respect you, how much strength you have. This was a perfect tribute to your dad… You gave yourself a shot tonight.” And after the live broadcast, Clair’s mom blogged, “I’m not sure how the voting will turn out by morning but I feel she has already won no matter what happens. She loves the other contestants dearly and will be so happy no matter who takes home the prize. Her performance was the most beautiful I have ever seen or heard.”

And though it wouldn’t count towards the eventual result, Clair took the stage at the Dolby Theater one last time for the big finale. She started off singing her self-penned tune “Okay Day” alone, and was then joined by Arthur. Sadly, it was later revealed Clair failed to make the Top 5. Check out her finale performance in the video below.
