Arizona's Evie Clair delivers emotional final performance on 'America's Got Talent'

AMERICA'S GOT TALENT-

"That's why I'm fighting to the end, just like he did". Heidi told the nine-year-old, "You are only four-feet-tall, but you are a giant", adding that in her opinion, Hale was the best singer of the season.

Clair - who has previously opened up about learning how to sing to comfort her father as he battled late-stage colon cancer - also explained how she found the strength to continue to pursue her dreams on AGT following her painful loss.

Evie's father, Amos, died at age 41 at Banner Gateway Medical Center in Arizona surrounded by his wife, their five children and other loved ones, according to AZ Central. "This song I'm going to sing was my dad's favorite song and he would always sing it", Clair says.

"Our hearts and our souls go out to you, Evie", said judge Howie Mandel after the performance, reported Entertainment Tonight.

That, Stoops said, fired up his players not to let this one go. "We're not going to have excuses in this organization". SC has lost four straight to Kentucky and will face Texas A&M and Tennessee in road contests in the next four weeks.

"I can not believe the strength this I'm seeing in such a lovely young girl".

Evie dedicated many of her performances to her father and her audition to Christina Perri's 2011 song "Arms" was especially memorable. "So thank you so much". "Your voice was attractive, the song was handsome, and I'm very proud of you". Because what you just did was handsome. "It was so pure and so raw".

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Evie and her family in this hard time and we wish her best of luck in the finale.

The victor of AGT Season 12 will be announced during Wednesday (Sept. 20) night's show beginning at 8 p.m. EST on NBC.
