This season of America’s Got Talent was filled with…well…talent!
But who ended up taking home the million dollar prize and the headlining show in Vegas?
It might come as no surprise that Grace VanderWaal, who was once dubbed the next Taylor Swift by Simon Cowell, was season 11’s big winner.
The 12-year-old singer wowed the judges from day one with her original songs, even earning the Golden Buzzer from Howie Mandel during the auditions.
Coming in second was The Clairvoyants, while Jon Dorenbos took third and Brian Justin Crum and Sal Valentinetti rounded out the top five.
Upon hearing she was the latest AGT champion, VanderWaal broke down into sobs, leading host Nick Cannon to ask, “These are tears of joy, right?”
“Yes, of course,” she answered.
And with that, a star is born!
