Grace Vanderwaal, at the age of 12, has won The America's Got Talent and was tagged by Simon Cowell as the "next Taylor Swift," received more than the prize she was expecting after her idol sent her a huge bouquet of flowers.
The mini Taytay was not able to contain her happiness upon receiving the gift from Taylor and posted a tweet saying, "Words can not explain how honored I am for this.. thank. You. SOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!", as reported by WJBD Radio.
And to top it all, Taylor Swift even retweeted her post which just made Vanderwaal even happier.
Vanderwaal caught everyone's attention after receiving a standing ovation from the audiences and the judges and a golden buzzer when she auditioned for The America's Got Talent, appeared with a ukelele and sang an original song which she said is about herself.
"A beautiful, walking miracle," is how the judges described Vanderwaal.
Taylor Swift has been known to be one of the most thoughtful artist in the music industry because she has been really sending out gifts to her fans. There is also something that they call "Swiftmas" where Taylor sends out gifts to her fans as early Christmas presents.
Huffington Post said, aside from Taylor swift, Vanderwaal also admitted that she also idolizes Katy Perry, who is not just well known as an artist in the music industry but Taylor Swift's rival as well. "Not so much the sound but as a person, I would say Katy Perry inspires me because you can always see that she's being true to herself," Vanderwaal told Teen Vogue. Katy Perry also tweeted when Vanderwaal won The America's Got Talent, congratulating her and telling her to just continue playing music and writing because it will serve her.
Other known celebrities also showed their happiness and congratulated the young winner like Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Witherspoon, and Jason Mraz.
In a statement, Simon Cowell said that Vanderwaal reminded him of the "Kelly Clarkson moment."
"You know, when they said, 'And the winner is Kelly Clarkson?' I kind of had that same feeling again when they read her name out, and I saw her reaction and she was literally in pieces. I like that though," Simon said.
