Michael Grimm Videos: When A Man Loves A Woman and More (America’s Got Talent)

September 15, 2010

Here is America’s Got Talent winner Michael Grimm performing When A Man Loves A Woman and other songs from the show. The music videos shows why America voted for him as the next America’s Got Talent winner in a major upset over 10-year old opera sensation Jackie Evancho. See Michael Grimm videos below!

For his victory Michael Grimm earned a cool one million dollars and all the accolades that come with future success. His career is now launched thanks to the America’s Got Talent Season 5 competition.

So who is Michael Grimm? Biographically he was born in the deep south in Waveland, Mississippi. He is 30 years old and has described his life as a struggle. That struggle began early in his childhood. Grimm has promised to use the prize money to help his grandparents. They raised him as a boy and lost everything they owned during Hurricane Katrina. Otherwise his background is thin as is true of all amateur musicians on these talent shows.

Grimm was raised to love country music as did his grandparents. They encouraged him to play his music in local bars in southern Mississippi where they frequently attended to root him on.

His audition on the show occurred in Los Angeles where he received instant kudos for his singing skills. The following week of competition found him singing “Try a Little Tenderness” which won the fans over for good. You can view that video performance by Michael Grimm below as well. In the semifinals he performed “You Can Leave Your Hat On” which advanced him to the finals round of ten.

In the finals Grimm made a smashing success “Let’s Stay Together” which advanced him to the top four and finals night on September 16th 2010. Others in the competition at that point included Jackie Evancho, the pretty 10-year old opera singer whose talent and poise made her the odds on favorite to win. Others still in the final four included the wacky Prince Poppycock and the sensational dance troupe Fighting Gravity. All of these individuals may have fine careers ahead of them although it is difficult to know if Prince Poppycock’s ranging talent will find a home with a reliable audience that will pay money to watch his gig.

In the end stood Michael Grimm, alone with the bookmakers’ favorite. She lost and the rest is history. Michael Grimm, winner America’s Got Talent! You can download his new CD on iTunes for the appropriate fee of course. It was released on July 20th during the show.

    I have been a HUGE Michael Grimm fan for several years when he was playing small venues in Vegas. We knew he was an amazingly talented young man who just needed his big break. Entertainment competition is absolutely fierce in this town and Michael has played House of Blues, the Palms, Ovation Room, and many more. He has toured with B.B. King, sang with Bill Medley (Righteous Bros) in his act, and opened for Heart. Now that many more in America knows about this amazing young man, he will pull in even more of his thousands of fans to hear him in Vegas. He has over 35,000 on his FB fan page alone and it increases every day. He knows this town and he will conquer it. Plus he has some fabulous cds independently produced. All of the final four are great talent. PP and FG will get their chance to see if they can make it in Vegas. Jackie is an adorable ten year old with an incredible talent and she will get many opportunities in her lifetime. I see no reason to put them down just because Michael Grimm was my first choice in the AGT competiton. I hope they all have the futures they want.
