America's Got Talent Winner Gets Record Deal

| Filed under: TV NewsMusic Minute

It's only been a couple weeks since America's Got Talent crowned their most recent winner, but singer Michael Grimm has already signed a record deal with Epic Records.

The "boy from Mississippi" received a record number of votes for his rendition of When a Man Loves a Woman on the show's finale.

Grimm said that he's been waiting to "cut the album [he's] been wanting to cut," adding, "I know the genre, I know the route I want to go on this album, what it looks like, and smells like, and sounds like.

His solo album will be released in March 2011.

Will U run out and buy it??

    That was one of the STRONGEST/SMARTEST song choices I have ever seen for a finale. I don't watch that show generally, but I did see the final 4 or 5 episodes. I am sure he will do extremely well in March!!

    I have not seen the show - but based on this performance, it looks as though the hicks in the south voted him in. He sounds like any ole' dive bar singer. This season must've been pretty bad and stale for this to be the decided winner.

    Yes I would buy the album in a heartbeat, he's fantastic!!



  11. 11

    He's a very nice guy with a relaxing voice well suited for cover versions and all, but no I wouldn't buy his album as it would not offer anything new, visionary or exciting. I do not need sonic wallpaper, thanks.

    I WOULD, however, buy a Prince Poppycock CD (or preferably a DVD) in a HEARTBEAT! Poppycock. is. GENIUS!

    PS: anyone remember Taylor Hicks? Anyone?? Anyone???

    Different show, I realize, but maybe ends up the same story?

    Re: Bedroom DJ – you're an ass. you wouldn't know true talent if it was forcibly, (or not ), shoved up your ass and spewed from your mouth. this generation is so deprived of real music. i don't know whether to feel sorry for you or shake some sense into you. are you really that blinded by the glitz and polish of manufactured pr machines? it's all generic dude. it's done and redone and then redone again. don't get me wrong, there are still talented artists out there, but they are few and far between and i love a catchy tune like anyone else, but educate yourself. go back and listen to music when it was real and unaltered and true, not an assembly line of molded cookie cutter money making machines. this kid has a voice, and he will stand apart from the generic spoon fed fluff.

    Re: madeira – at least your parents love you?



  15. 15

    I wouldn't RUN out and buy it but I would buy it. This is true music. Not the shit that GAG GAG, Breeber, Slutty Cyrus, etc sing today. That is all shit music. People don't know good music anymore. All they know is screaming and la la la yeah yeah yeah and auto tune.



  16. 16

    I USUALLY STAY AWAY FROM THESE REALITY SHOW WINNER TYPES BUT THIS GUY IS GOOD.



  17. 17

    I was SO glad he won! YEA!!!!!!!

    I've already downloaded one of his albums from itunes. It was self produced and released. It was also all original material written by him. I absolutely LOVE it. Every song kicks ass. I will certainly buy a studio album of his.



  19. 19

    You bet I will go out and buy his album. His voice and his rendition of that song gave me goose bumps. He is a major find on that show. the only other one that deserved to win was Terry Fador. Can't wait until his CD comes out. Go Michael!!!!!!!!!!!!!
