We’ve been following the rise of Grace VanderWaal ever since Simon Cowell dubbed her the next Taylor Swift, so we weren’t surprised to see the 12-year-old easily beat out the rest of the competition Wednesday night to become the new winner of America’s Got Talent!

The teenager is taking home a $1 million prize plus she’ll be headlining her own show for three nights at Planet Hollywood.
According to People magazine, she plans to donate some of her prize money to a music charity.
Grace seems wise beyond her years, but she adorably reminded everyone she’s still a kid when she admitted, “but I want to go on Treehouse Masters and I want to get a treehouse.”
During last night’s finale, VanderWaal performed her original song that wowed the judges during her initial AGT audition. Watch her encore presentation of “I Don’t Know My Name,” below:
You can check out Grace VanderWaal live at the PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas on October 27-29.
