'America's Got Talent' Winner Grace VanderWaal Books Vegas Concerts
America's Got Talent winner Grace VanderWaal is Las Vegas bound!
The 12-year-old singer/ukulele player will headline the PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino on Oct. 27, 28 and 29, according to a statement.
The Season 11 winner -- who will also collect a $1 million grand prize -- will be joined by the AGT runner-up, The Clairvoyants, and prop mime Tape Face for all three shows.
VanderWaal was a frontrunner from her very first audition, when she played "I Don't Know My Name." Her performance excited judge Howie Mandel, who propelled her into the competition by hitting the Golden Buzzer.
At Wednesday night's season finale, Mandel was quick to join a sobbing VanderWaal onstage at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood to congratulate her. "I love you," he said.
As a special treat, the New Yorker -- who purchased her ukulele with birthday money for her 11th birthday -- performed a reprise of her audition song, earning praise from special guest Stevie Nicks: "She's got it," Nicks said.
Auditions for Season 12 kick off in Chicago on Nov. 12, and will make 10 stops around the country. For more information, look online at www.AGTAuditions.com.
