Thirteen-year-old Nora Foss Al-Jabri
was already a well-known star in her home country of Norway when she appeared on The Oprah Show
on May 18, 2009, singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." She started competing in talent contests at 8 years old and became an overnight sensation when her sister posted a video of her singing on the Internet. The teen, who dreams of belting it out on Broadway, earned third place in Norway's Got Talent
. But Nora hopes that's only the beginning of her career. "I want to do my own album and write my own songs," she said.
