We’ve been following the incredible singing talent that is Grace VanderWaal as soon as she broke out onto the scene on this year’s America’s Got Talent. She has been touted as the next Taylor Swift for both her vocal skills and songwriting talent, and we would LOVE to see that come true. Last night, the winners were announced, and Grace’s reaction was SO sweet.

Grace VanderWaal won America’s Got Talent, and her reaction is priceless.

How can we not happy cry for this incredible 12-year-old who clearly loves her art so much? Grace wins a million dollar prize as well as a headlining show in Las Vegas, and we are so happy for her.

The other prize she got is this awesome hug from Heidi Klum, which is pretty much the coolest prize we could think of.

The ukulele playing songstress has been one of the front runners from the very beginning.

At her audition, Howie Mandel gave Grace the “golden buzzer,” which sent her straight through to the live rounds. She has gotten rave feedback from the judges throughout the competition.

For her winning performance, Grace performed the song that wowed at the audition, “I Don’t Know My Name.”

Check out her winning performance here:

Her voice is so stunning and full for someone as young as she is. Also, we love her sparkly cat ears headband. She’s already setting trends!

Congratulations Grace! We can’t wait to see you at the Grammys!
