They should just change the title of this season to Grace's Got Talent!

That's basically how the America's Got Talent judges felt after watching another spectacular performance from singer Grace VanderWaal on Tuesday night.

During night one of the finale, the 12-year-old ukulele player — dubbed "the next Taylor Swift" by Simon Cowell way back in her audition — closed out the show performing her flawless original song Clay!

"It's not only a song. It speaks to you. You are amazing. Grace has to win. This is my favorite moment of the night."

He's not wrong! She's AH-Mazing!
