12 YEAR OLD GIRL AUDITIONS ON NBC’S AGT AND BECOMES OVERNIGHT SENSATION!
SIMON COWELL PREDICTS GRACE IS, “THE NEXT TAYLOR SWIFT!”
Earlier this week, a stunned 12-year-old girl from Seffren NY, Grace VanderWaal, took a deep breath and slowly walked onto the stage for her big moment to wow the judges; Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel on NBC's 11th season of, America’s Got Talent. VanderWaal was sporting a blunt bob, bright yellow jeans with a classic ukulele wrapped around her back.
VanderWaal, appeared to be a typical cute, bit shy, young lady but, no-one would have guessed she was about to steal the show!
Once the Judges started to question VanderWaal, they were the ones who were shocked. VanderWaal portrayed an air of maturity and poise about her that was well beyond her twelve years of life.
Just before VanderWaal performed live, Cowell asked, “Do you believe that you can win?” VanderWaal replied, “I mean; miracles can happen. So, possibly!” As soon as Grace started to sing and strum her ukulele the crowd was in awe.
Before VanderWaal finished the memorable audition the audience was on their feet with a standing ovation. Mandel had a huge smile on his face and told Grace, “You are a living, beautiful, walking miracle. I think the world is gonna your name.” Then suddenly, Mandel hit the coveted golden buzzer, which took VanderWaal straight through to the “Live Shows.” As VanderWaal stood their in shock she was showered with gold confetti and an adoring crowd. Cowell went on to tell VanderWaal she was “The Next Taylor Swift.” Colin may not be far off! At Grace’s age, Swift had just started to write her own songs and at 16 she released her debut album. VanderWaal just may be following in Taylor’s footsteps!
