Video: America's Got Talent

If seeing is believing, then you will believe that so much talent (and what sounds like years of experience) can exist in one 12-year-old girl.

Grace VanderWaal has been wowing the America's Got Talent judges and audience since her audition, going on to perform original songs she wrote herself, including Clay, which she sang at the finale yesterday night. Armed only with her ukulele, Grace has the folky voice of someone far more mature than her, and it's no wonder she's been getting standing ovations all over the place.

Judge Simon Cowell called Grace the new Taylor Swift after first seeing her perform, but we think she is already holding her own.

Watch her audition tape here. Warning: you will cry when you see her reaction to getting the coveted Golden Buzzer from Howie Mandel.

Grace, along with nine other finalists are eyeing the million-dollar prize. America's Got Talent Season 11 crowns its winner tonight.
