Grace Vanderwaal Finale Performance Video on 'America's Got Talent' [WATCH] – Winner of Season 11 with 'I Don't Know My Name' Song
Grace VanderWaal walked away $1 Million richer Wednesday night as the Season 11 victor of "America's Got Talent." With that, the 12-year-ol Suffern, New York native is also set to headline her won Las Vegas show beginning next month. On "America's Got Talent, VanderWaal left little question she has what stars are made of as she belted out a mesmerizing rendition of "I Don't Know My Name" during the season finale.
After her masterful performance was done, the crowd overwhelmingly saluted her and host Nick Cannon openly wondered if all her falling tears was a cry of joy.
"Yes, of course!" responded the teen who also wowed with performance of the original tune "Clay."
When all was said and the effusive 12-year-old shared she wants to "go on 'Treehouse Masters' and get a treehouse."
Judge Simon Cowell, who long ago predicted Vanderwaal's rise, marveled throughout the night that her still level reminded him of someone who is now an industry mainstay after getting her start on the "American Idol" show he once also served as a judge for.
"That moment at the end, it reminded me of the Kelly Clarkson moment," he said. "You know, when they said, 'And the winner is Kelly Clarkson.' I kind of had that same feeling again when they read her name out, and I saw her reaction and she was literally in pieces."
Taylor Swift Comparisons
Vanderhaal is already drawing Taylor Swift comparisons and immediately following her shining moment, fellow judge Heidi Klum took to social media to sing her praises and rave about what she's convinced will he her future accomplishments.
"There's only so few people that pop up now and then that can really make a difference, and she will make a difference in music 100 percent," she said.
