Angelina Jordan, the Norwegian eight-year-old who wowed the world with her eerily perfect Billie Holiday cover last month, has done it again with a rendition of Nancy Sinatra's Bang Bang (my baby shot me down). It's so good, you suspect some trickery at play.

Jordan performed her latest number in the semi-finals of 'Norske Talenter' (Norway's Got Talent) on Saturday night, astounding the judges ýet again with her smokey vocals and perfect phrasing.
She was sent straight to the finals, where she now faces the Viva Sandnes Culture School choir.
"I'm not nervous, because I believe in myself," Jordan told Norway's TV2 after the show. 
According to her parents, Jordan was only one-and-a-half years old when she first discovered Whitney Houston's "I will always love you" on YouTube. She quickly learnt to type in the required letters to find the song on her parents' laptop.  Soon, she was doing a very passable impression, after which she moved on to the related tracks, which included Billie Holiday and other jazz artists.
Her parents later bought her karaoke versions of her favourites. 
When she saw an advert for Norway's Got Talent 2014 last year, she applied, and now she's on track to win the competition. 
"Angelina, I think I can say that I love you,"  Norwegian rapper Omer Bhatti said after her performance on Saturday. "You are showing signs of a true artist. In my heart you have already won." 
Watch and be amazed: 

Here's her doing Fly me to the Moon:
