Grace VanderWaal has some very big shoes to fill if Simon Cowell has anything to say about it.
The 12-year-old girl from New York City melted the hearts of the studio audience on America’s Got Talent last night.
“Most of my friends don’t know I sing,” Grace confessed to the judges while introducing her performance, an original song entitled “I Don’t Know My Name.”
When asked if she thought she could win the competition, she responded, “Well, I mean, miracles can happen, so possibly.”
Grace then picked up her ukulele, and launched into her song that she has described as “a song about finding who you are and where you fit in.” on her YouTube page.
The audience and judges immediately responded, giving her a a standing ovation as her family looked on from the side of the stage, Cowell even made the bold prediction that Grace could be the next Taylor Swift.
