Grace Vanderwaal recently bonded with professional juggler Viktor Kee backstage in “America’s Got Talent” Season 11.
On her Instagram account, the 12-year-old singer shared a face swap video with her fellow contestant. In the clip, Vanderwaal, surprised by how Kee looked, said that he looks like a baby with her face and Kee’s bald head. The “I Don’t Know My Name” singer then joked that she hopes her followers on Instagram wouldn’t get nightmares after seeing their video.
Vanderwaal also shared another video with Kee who taught her some of his juggling tricks. Kee wasn’t wearing his usual makeup in the clip.
Meanwhile, Vanderwaal and Kee were two of the contestants who went on a local news tour ahead of “America’s Got Talent” Season 11’s finale episode. They were joined by opera singer Laura Bretan and Heidi Klum’s golden buzzer pick Sal Valentinetti. Vanderwaal said that they were able to go around the world in just an hour during their guest appearance over the weekend.
Vanderwaal is expected to perform another original song in the finale. While speaking with USA Today, the Suffern native said that she’s very comfortable with sharing her original songs because she wants people to feel something when they listen to them. “I don’t think of them as my personal diary ready out aloud on a stage, but as me trying to hold someone’s hand. My songs flow out of me. It was like something that was inside of me and I didn’t even know, and it just came out of the way of a song,” she explained.
“America’s Got Talent” Season 11 will come to an end next week. According to NBC, 10 contestants will perform at the Dolby Theater stage for the last time for the chance to win $1 million. This season’s winner will also headline a show in Las Vegas.
“America’s Got Talent” Season 11 airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
