Have we really discovered the next generation's Taylor Swift?
Not too long ago, the aspiring 12-year-old singer Grace VanderWaal auditioned for the eleventh season of America's Got Talent. The young one chose to keep her audition simple by playing her ukulele to accompany her original song titled I Don't Know My Name.
After her performance, she received a standing ovation by the super-impressed crowd as well as the panel of celebrity judges. The young star probably thought that the reaction she got could not get any better than that, but it did. Judge Howie Mandel pressed the highly coveted golden buzzer that sent Grace all the way to the semi-finals. Many viewers also noticed that although being a germophobe, Howie went to hug her not once but twice! You would probably have to be THAT good for a germophobe to want to hug you!
The judges had nothing but praise for what they had just witnessed. Simon Cowell also predicted that she could be the next Tswizzle. WOW, what a bold statement. Well, they both kinda have the same blonde bob-cut, mind-blowing songwriting skills, amazing vocals and a down-to-earth magnetic personality that is just so refreshing to watch.
So what do you think? Do you agree with Simon that Grace VanderWaal is the next Taylor Swift? Do let us know by leaving us a tweet!
PS: Can we get this song on iTunes, please?
