Grace VanderWaal Wins ‘America’s Got Talent’

By Sarah Carroll

We’ve been following the rise of Grace VanderWaal ever since Simon Cowell dubbed her the next Taylor Swift, so we weren’t surprised to see the 12-year-old easily beat out the rest of the competition Wednesday night to become the new winner of America’s Got Talent!

The teenager is taking home a $1 million prize plus she’ll be headlining her own show for three nights at Planet Hollywood.

According to People magazine, she plans to donate some of her prize money to a music charity.

Grace seems wise beyond her years, but she adorably reminded everyone she’s still a kid when she admitted, “but I want to go on Treehouse Masters and I want to get a treehouse.”

During last night’s finale, VanderWaal performed her original song that wowed the judges during her initial AGT audition. Watch her encore presentation of “I Don’t Know My Name,” below:

You can check out Grace VanderWaal live at the PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on October 27-29.
