Grace Vanderwaal will be taking the Dolby Theater stage on Tuesday night’s episode of “America’s Got Talent” Season 11.
Prior to the live show, Vanderwaal posted a short video via Instagram reminding her followers to tune in to “America’s Got Talent” Season 11 and support her. In the clip, the 12-year-old singer/composer also announced that her cover of Ellie King’s “Ex’s & Oh’s” has already garnered more than two million views on YouTube. The “I Don’t Know My Name” singer also shared a selfie during one of her rehearsals.
On Aug. 23, a total of 12 acts will be performing in front of judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel. However, only seven of them will make it through to the semifinals. According to NBC, Vanderwaal will be competing for a spot against Ronee, Brian Justin Crum, Linkin’ Bridge, Edgar, Malevo, Blake Vogt, Julia Scotti, The Passing Zone, Vello Vaher and Kadan Bart Rockett.
Following their live performances, viewers will have the chance to vote for their favorite contestant via the “America’s Got Talent” app, Facebook or online. Each viewer with a valid e-mail address or Facebook account can vote up to 10 times per account within the voting period for every live show.
On Wednesday night, five acts with the highest total number of votes will be saved immediately. One act will be saved with the Dunkin’ Donut save, while the seventh act will head to the semifinals with the help of the four judges.
Meanwhile, Vanderwaal recently spoke with Teen Vogue to share how her hit audition song "I Don't Know My Name" came about. According to her, she wrote the lyrics for the song while doing her math homework. "And I still remember the date. And I just came up with the tune, and then I put words to it. And then I came up with the plot of it and then that made it easier for lines, and then it was just born!" she said.
“America’s Got Talent” season 11 airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
