Michael Grimm was on Ellen DeGeneres, fresh off his America’s Got Talent win – you can check out Michael Grimm’s interview and performance of “You Don’t Know Me” in the video clips below.
The new America’s Got Talent winner, Michael Grimm, talks about the emotional journey of the show, saying, “I was just blessed that I got to the finale.”
Grimm auditioned last year and didn’t make it to the judges, so this is a huge accomplishment, to say the least. This year’s America’s Got Talent had really tough competition, Grimm explained. Ellen remarked how his reaction when he was announced the winner was so fantastic, and Michael said it still hasn’t sunk in!
On the America’s Got Talent finale, Michael Grimm sang “When a Man Loves a Woman,” saying, “I sang that for my Lucy.”
Ellen asks what he’s going to do with the million dollar prize money, and while he said he didn’t think it out too much, he will be getting his grandparents into a better situation with a new house.
After the commercial break, Michael Grimm proposes to his girlfriend Lucy! Ellen brings her to the stage and Grimm remarks that Lucy has “been my rock… she’s been there for me… and once you find that good woman, you hang on to her,” then he gets down on one knee to propose.
Pretty sweet! What do you think of Michael Grimm’s proposal on Ellen’s show today?
