One of 2016’s biggest pop culture surprises came in a tiny package: America’s Got Talent winner Grace VanderWaal. The 12-year-old singer-songwriter-ukulele player’s first appearance on the show impressed the judges — even earning her a Taylor Swift comparison from Simon Cowell — and wound up one of the most popular YouTube videos of the year. And now she’s ready to sing for us again and help us get into the holiday spirit.
In this exclusive clip from the America’s Got Talent Holiday Spectacular, VanderWaal brings her unique sound to “Frosty the Snowman.” She’s accompanied by a chorus of children, but there’s no question who the star is.
Meanwhile, the show’s judges — Cowell, Howie Mandel, Heidi Klum, and Mel B — are beaming like proud parents.
VanderWaal released her first EP, Perfectly Imperfect, filled with the original songs she performed on the reality competition series over the summer, earlier this month.
Watch the clip below, and tune into the America’s Got Talent Holiday Spectacular, which will feature many more AGT fan favorites, on Dec. 19 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
