Grace VanderWaal “Ellen DeGeneres Show” Video: Watch “I Don’t Know My Name” Performance!
Grace VanderWaal discussed her “America’s Got Talent” win and performed “I Don’t Know My Name” on Wednesday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.” Watch below!
As Gossip Cop reported, it was exactly a week ago that VanderWaal won “AGT” after being the frontrunner throughout season 11. DeGeneres was among the celebs to offer the 12-year-old congrats, tweeting to her, “You are so amazing, @GraceVanderWaal. America picked right. See you next week on my show. #AGT.”
Now during their chat, VanderWaal was asked about comparisons to Taylor Swift. “There’s been different interprets [sic] of what [judge Simon Cowell] meant, from I kinda look like her,” she told the host. “Also ’cause she cut her hair into a bob.” DeGeneres quipped, “Because of you, probably!”
VanderWaal went on to do a funny impression of Cowell as she explained the real meaning of his compliment, and made a huge grin when DeGeneres brought up her $1 million “AGT” prize. The comedienne amusingly asked, “Do you understand what that is?” The singer seemed to… maybe.
DeGeneres later surprised her with a hilarious place to stash the money. VanderWaal’s “Ellen” appearance came just hours after it was revealed she signed a record deal with Columbia Records. Check out the video below!
