Right before returning to the stage for the live ‘America’s Got Talent’ shows, Grace Vanderwaal took to her YouTube channel to debut a brand new, original song. And we’re kind of obsessed! Watch her sing it here.
“I’ve been trying really hard to write lately, but there’s been a lot on my mind. As some of you know, I just went to a Twenty One Pilots concert and that inspired me with the song,” Grace Vanderwaal says in the beginning of the video. “It’s [about] if you’re done and you just want to be done with everything…there are great things to come.”
As you probably know, Grace made headlines when Simon Cowell said she could be the next Taylor Swift. However, when we recently chatted with her, she revealed that she’s actually more into Taylor’s nemesis, Katy Perry!
“I used to be like obsessed with [Taylor] when she was in like her country days when I was like nine. I really don’t listen to her that much but I hear her on the radio and I know every single word to all her songs,” she told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. “And you know I want to be unique and my own person. I think what Simon meant by that was the success. I mean everyone knows Taylor Swift, there is not one person who doesn’t know Taylor Swift and I think that is what he implied by that!”
She then added that it is Katy Perry who she idolizes in the music world. “I know that might be a weird one but I love her so much because she always stayed herself — she has always been Katy Perry,” she said. “For as long as I can remember, some stars go on these shows and by the end of the show they become a completely different person. But Katy Perry has always always been herself, and I think that is so amazing and great!”
