Tiny body, old soul: Watch below as ten-year-old Brit Connie Talbot sings her small heart (and big lungs) out, a pocket Adele just hanging out under the stairs at home—apparently, pretty standard production values at the Talbot house—and ripping through the 22-year-old U.K. superstar’s torchy, wrenching ballad, with just a backing piano track and a blue boutonnier for company:

You may recognize Connie from her time on Britain’s Got Talent—as a gap-toothed 6-year-old back in 2007, she drew rare raves from Simon “Crankypants” Cowell with her rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow,” and ultimately placed second overall.
Is 10 the new 20, in pop-star years? Do precocious moppets like Talbot and Willow Smith fascinate you, or kind of freak you out? (Thanks to NYmag.com for the link.)
