12-year-old Grace VanderWaal has a talent she hasn’t told many about, but it’s a talent that Simon Cowell says could make her the next Taylor Swift.
No one expected the tiny, young girl who took the “America’s Got Talent” stage to deliver the type of performance that she did. Grace performed an original song accompanied by her ukulele. Her voice was exceptionally powerful as she sang lyrics wise beyond her years. See the dazzling performance for yourself below.
The audience couldn’t help but clap along until the end and when she was finished everyone in the room was on their feet giving a standing ovation. Howie gave his seal of approval.“I think you are a living, beautiful, walking miracle,” he said before he hit the elusive golden buzzer.
Tears of joy fell from Grace’s eyes once she realized what was going on. When host Nick Cannon asked how she was feeling she responded by saying, “I feel like I’m kind of just daydreaming and I’m getting ready to wake up.”
Grace won’t be waking up anytime soon as her daydream will continue through to the next round and it seems as if she has a whole lot of people pulling her. One of those people is hard to please judge Simon Cowell who said during the show he predicts Grace is the next Taylor Swift.
