GOLDSBORO, N.C. (AP) _ An opera-singing 6th-grader from Goldsboro has won CBS-TV's national talent competition.
Madeline Edwards won The Early Show's ``Living Room ... Live! Kids'' with a submitted video of her singing of ``O Mio Babbino Caro,'' from an opera by Puccini.
Edwards, who won the 3 month competition with 41 percent of the votes cast online, will perform live on the CBS show this Tuesday.
She advanced to the final round against Katherine Fritsch, an 8-year-old from Raleigh, who sang the ``Star-Spangled Banner,'' and a rock band from Coweta, Oklahoma called Crooked X that performed an original tune.
You can check out the â€˜Crooked Xâ€™ video submission by going to The Early Show.
Edwards, who aspires to become an opera singer, has been performing since she was 4.
