Darci Lynne just achieved triple-threat status. She won America's Got Talent on the strength of her ventriloquism, then gained a massive online following for her singing. And now it seems she can act, as well, as her music cover of this Grease classic is totally emotional. Can she bring this skill to America's Got Talent: Fantasy League? We'll have to wait and see.

Singing "Hopelessly Devoted to You," Lynne channels all of the lovelorn dejection and innocence the song demands. If anyone is currently casting a remake of Grease, they should seriously consider her for the role of Sandy.

"Hopelessly Devoted to You" by Olivia Newton-John lyrics

Guess mine is not the first heart broken
My eyes are not the first to cry
I'm not the first to know
There's just no getting over you

I know I'm just a fool who's willing
To sit around and wait for you
But baby, can't you see there's nothing else for me to do?
I'm hopelessly devoted to you

But now there's nowhere to hide
Since you pushed my love aside
I'm out of my head
Hopelessly devoted to you

Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you

My head is sayin', "Fool, forget him"
My heart is sayin', "Don't let go
Hold on to the end", that's what I intend to do
I'm hopelessly devoted to you

But now there's no way to hide
Since you pushed my love aside
I'm outta my head
Hopelessly devoted to you

Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you
