    Grammys: Could ‘America’s Got Talent’ champ Grace VanderWaal become youngest Best New Artist in history?

    • Description

      Singer-songwriter Grace VanderWaal was just 12-years-old when she won the NBC competition series “America’s Got Talent” in September 2016. She was 13 when she released her debut studio album, “Just the Beginning,” in November 2017. And she’ll turn 14 before the time the Grammy Awards come around on January 28, 2018. If she manages to win Best New Artist she’ll make history as that award’s youngest winner and the fourth youngest winner ever in any category.

      The current record holder as the youngest Best New Artist champ is LeAnn Rimes, who was a country prodigy when she broke out with her debut album “Blue” in 1996. She was 13 when that album was released, and when she collected her Grammy for Best New Artist early in 1997 she was 14 years and 182 days old. VanderWaal will be a few months younger than that when the 2018 Grammys are handed out, so she has a chance of sliding in under Rimes’s record.
