Congratulations, Grace VanderWaal! The tween singing sensation was just announced the winner of ‘America’s Got Talent’ Season 11, and HollywoodLife.com already got the scoop on how she’ll celebrate her big win. Read our EXCLUSIVE interview with Grace right here!
“Honestly hopefully [get] a little rest,” Grace revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “This has been really really draining. Amazing, but draining.”
Aww, the poor girl just wants to take a break from all the craziness — after all, she is only 12 years old! And heck, after the insane performances she had all season as well as having such a crazy night tonight, we think Grace deserves to have a little R&R. Plus, she was in such shock from her win that she couldn’t stop crying after Nick Cannon announced her as the winner. As if singing your heart out and winning a national talent show isn’t taxing enough, crying can really take a lot out of a person!
Although Grace seemed overwhelmed by the fact that she won Season 11, America probably wasn’t too surprised to see her crowned the winner. She made her mark from the very beginning, becoming a standout with her catchy original songs and adorable ukulele strumming. Despite the obvious popularity Grace had as a contestant, she stuck to her shtick of singing her own tracks the entire season, winning the hearts of more and more Americans each week. Looks like it paid off, huh?
In case you missed her first audition (have you been living under a rock?!), Simon Cowell even told her she’s “The next Taylor Swift”! And now that she has the AGT title, $1 million, AND a Vegas show to her name — all before she even becomes a teenager, mind you — she’s certainly on her way to prove Simon right!
HollywoodLifers, are you happy Grace won? What do you think of how she’s going to celebrate her win? Tell us below!
