We’ve been waiting all season to find out who would be the winner on NBC’s America’s Got Talent and last night we got an answer. Blues singer Michael Grimm took home the big prize of $1 million… and some viewers don’t think he deserved to win.
There is no doubt that the Heath Ledger-esque Michael Grimm has talent, but was he the most talented performer on the show? That is debatable (check out the video below to decide for yourself). He has a strong, raspy voice and a heartfelt story about wanting to help his family recover from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, but was he the most talented? Jackie Evancho, a 10-year-old opera singer who seemed to be the front runner got the world’s attention from the moment she opened her mouth. Shortly after, her videos went viral on the web.
The 32-year-old Mississippi native reacts to his win and says, “I still can’t find words. This is unbelievable. If the smile on my face can describe it then this is what I feel! It’s overwhelming…to make it after so many years of struggling, it’s like a big payday.”
Here is Michael Grimm singing “When a Man Loves a Woman”:
