Ukulele player and winner of Season 11 of America’s Got Talent Grace VanderWaal heads to Las Vegas Oct. 27-29 for an exclusive engagement of America’s Got Talent Live, a stage show version of the NBC television show in the PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort. VanderWaal won the gig, along with $1 million, last Monday night.
The 12-year-old VanderWaal from New York started making up songs at the age of three and started piano lessons when she was four. She started playing the saxophone at age 10 in her school’s marching and concert band. For her 11th birthday, VanderWaal bought a ukulele and learned to play by watching YouTube videos.
Joining VanderWaal on the Las Vegas stage will be the mystifying Season 11 runner-up act, The Clairvoyants, along with Top 10 comedic finalist Tape Face.
When they first met, Tommy Ten and Amelie van Taas of The Clairvoyants discovered that they had a very special connection. What started as a heightened sense of intuition quickly grew into something far more intriguing. As the years passed, their incredible connection blossomed into a skill that they wanted to share with others. What began as intimate performances for friends and family soon developed into tours of schools and universities.
Before he set out performing, Tape Face listened to every piece of music recorded in the ’80s and ’90s and went shopping at the local dollar store. Only after working out what order he should put things into his bag, did he start performing for audiences around the world, including a princess at the Royal Variety Performance in England. His comedy style incorporates audience interaction, surreal silences and finding ways to remind people that it’s never too late to not grow up.
Tickets for America’s Got Talent Live range from $55 to $185 and are now on sale at AGTvegas.com, by phone at 1-855-234-7469, or in-person at the PH Showroom Box Office. Show time is 7:30 p.m.
