Grace Vanderwaal recently stopped by “Today” to share some details about her upcoming concert in Las Vegas.
As the winner of “America’s Got Talent” Season 11, the 12-year-old Suffern native will be performing at the Planet Hollywood Las Vegas Resort & Casino from Oct. 27 to 29. According to Vanderwaal, tickets to her show are already sold out. She also confirmed that she will be singing original songs, but she didn’t say whether or not she will be performing new songs during her three-night concert. “It’s really, really exciting. And the most exciting part is… now it’s sold out!” she exclaimed.
Meanwhile, even though two weeks have already passed since she was named the winner of “America’s Got Talent” Season 11, Vanderwaal admitted that everything that happened during her final moments on stage still hasn’t sunk in yet. “People ask me what does it feel like watching it, and I’m like, it doesn’t feel like you. You think you’re just watching an episode,” she said. Vanderwaal also shared that a lot of people come up to her on the streets to congratulate her. More often than not, her fans also remind her to always stay true to herself.
In other news, Vanderwaal first gained popularity when she auditioned for the hit NBC talent competition in May. During that time, Vanderwaal received a golden buzzer from judge Howie Mandel. The latter, as well as fellow judge Simon Cowell, predicted big things for Vanderwaal. Since then, the “I Don’t Know My Name” singer has wowed viewers with her original songs, including “Light Up The Sky,” “Beautiful Thing” and “Clay.”
After winning “America’s Got Talent,” Vanderwaal has also signed a deal with Simon Cowell’s record label Syco Music, which is under Sony Music’s Columbia Records, according to Billboard. Other artists who have signed with Syco Music include One Direction, Beyonce and more.
