This little girl is totally the next Taylor Swift

America's Got Talent may have just discovered the next pop princess.

Watch out Taylor Swift, you’ve got some pint-sized competition!


Twelve-year-old Grace VanderWall surprised America’s Got Talent when she stole the show (and our hearts) on Tuesday night. Armed with a killer set of pipes and a little ukulele, the quirky and adorable singer-songwriter belted out an original song called “I Don’t Know My Name.”

Ironically, as Howie Mandel pointed out, the whole world’s gonna know her name now. The tween’s performance was so impressive Howie called her “a living, beautiful, walking miracle” and hit the Golden Buzzer sending her straight to the live quarterfinals show. Talk about tween dreams coming true!

And Simon Cowell thinks she’s the next T-Swift. We couldn’t agree more. Hey Grace, can we be in your squad?
