Video: Jackie Evancho Sings 'Dark Waltz' and 'Ave Maria' on 'Dancing with the Stars'


Jackie covers 'Dark Waltz' during Tristan MacManus and Karina Smirnoff's dance performance, and does 'Ave Maria' to provide soundtrack for William Levy and Cheryl Burke.

Jackie Evancho visited "Dancing with the Stars" on April 30 and showed off her mesmerizing vocal chops. The 12-year-old soprano singer played a beautiful cover of "Dark Waltz", a song by another soprano Hayley Westenra, while pro dancers Tristan MacManus and Karina Smirnoff took the dance floor.

Before singing, Jackie campaigned for classical crossover singer Katherine Jenkins, "Vote for Katherine Jenkins on dancing with the stars!" The young star additionally wrote to her, "can't wait to see you too!!! It's been so long since we've seen each other!!" Back in 2010, they sang "Silent Night" together at the Rockefeller Center tree lighting.

The "DWTS" week dedicated to classical music was kicked off by Joshua Bell. He played "Vivaldi's Summer", while "DWTS" dance troupe invaded the dance floor. Also gracing the stage that night was world renowned tenor Vittorio Grigolo. While Joshua only performed once, both Vittorio and Jackie sang twice.

Vittorio played "La donna e mobile" for Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd's Viennese Waltz performance. He later returned to the stage to sing "O Fortuna" for Team Paso Doble. Meanwhile, Jackie covered "Ave Maria" when it was William Levy and Cheryl Burke's turn to deliver their Viennese Waltz.

On the elimination night airing Tuesday, Gavin DeGraw, who was eliminated from the dancing show during week 5, will return to the ballroom as a musical guest. The singer, who partnered with Karina during his participation on the show, will perform his single "Sweeter" with Karina and Louis Van Amstel doing the dance.
