This 'American Idol' Contestant Is Being Called the Next Kelly Clarkson - Watch Her Sing! (Video)

Myra Tran had a standout audition during the season two premiere of the American Idol reboot, which aired on Sunday (March 3).

The 19-year-old singer moved to the United States from Vietnam last year and she is still in high school and sings in the school’s choir!

Myra wowed the judges with her performance of the song “One Night Only” from the Broadway musical Dreamgirls, which Jennifer Hudson famously sung in the movie version.

The judges compared her to some of the greats and Lionel Richie even said that she’s basically the new Kelly Clarkson!
