Adorable 12-year-old Grace VanderWaal seemed shy when she first stepped onto the audition stage for “America’s Got Talent,” and when the young lady revealed she would be performing an original song while playing the ukulele, the judges faces were instantly shrouded in doubt.
Although Grace has been writing songs since she was a toddler, this was the first time she would be performing in front of such a large crowd. As she started singing, all traces of nervousness faded away and the judges had to scrape their jaws up off the floor after hearing her voice. No wonder Howie Mandel gave her the golden buzzer!
Incredible. I’m sure Grace VanderWaal’s iconic audition will go down in reality TV history. It’s easy to say her flawless talent is what swept everyone off their feet, but honestly, it was her humility and positive outlook on life that really won the audience over.
