UPDATE: Wife Of AGT Winner Michael Grimm Reveals Latest On Treatment Of His Terrifying Mystery Illness

America’s Got Talent Winner Michael Grimm Hospitalized With Mystery Illness

UPDATE, 6:24 pm PT — It sounds like Michael Grimm is making progress, but things still aren’t quite fully figured out yet.

The season five America’s Got Talent star has been bedridden for days and now hospitalized in the ICU on a ventilator, as we reported (below) on Tuesday morning.

Now, there’s yet another update from his concerned wife Lucie Zolcerova-Grimm. In a new Instagram video sent out to fans of the AGT sensation, Lucie first explained that Michael’s voice is “slowly coming back” now that’s he’s been sedated and under the care of medical professionals at a hospital:

“His voice is slowly coming back but unfortunately a lot of the medications he was on were for sedation.”

Still, the road is not smooth yet — not by a long shot.

Lucie explained how Michael is hallucinating while coming down off the latest round of medications:

“One of the side effects of it is hallucinations and confusion and anger and anxiety. … The hallucinations have really been the worst part of it… because he’s really kind of now waking up to reality. With the medications causing hallucinations, he’s having a hard time distinguishing what’s actually in the room and what’s not.”

And those hallucinations have apparently been frustrating, scary, and unsettling:

“It’s creating a lot of confusion for him, and a lot of frustration and anger, because he thinks things are happening that really aren’t.”


To make matters worse, in the new IG vid, Zolcerova-Grimm explained that her husband still doesn’t even recognize her all the time. So, clearly, he’s still being very much affected by the medications given to him — and the mystery condition that so suddenly and scarily altered his life in the first place. For now, she told fans that doctors expect these hallucinatory side effects to dissipate in the next few days.

We continue to send our prayers to Michael for a full recovery. Such a scary situation…


Michael Grimm has been hospitalized with a mystery illness.

The America’s Got Talent season five winner is not in the best of health, and his wife, Lucie Zolcerova-Grimm, is seeking support from fans. In an emotional video posted to the singer’s Instagram Tuesday, Lucie shared:

“I know you all love Michael and while I want to protect his privacy and his request to not disclose anything, we’re kind of in a situation.”

She added that he’s been “struggling with his health a lot, lacking energy and not being able to fulfill shows,” and on Memorial Day, the reality star apparently “could barely walk, couldn’t lift his head.” Lucie initially thought he may have been having a stroke, and rushed him to the hospital, where he:

“Started talking gibberish and all of a sudden, physical tremors were setting in [and] his blood pressure was skyrocketing.”

So terrifying. She added:

“For the safety of his health, they had to put him on a ventilator and sedate him pretty heavily so that he wouldn’t stroke out, so that he wouldn’t flatline.”

He has since been taken off the ventilator, but his mystery illness has still not been identified ahead of his canceled July shows:

“Michael will have to not only come back to full consciousness, which he’s not yet. He will also have to now undergo physical therapy because he’s been bedridden for over a week. He currently has no voice, he’s got to go under vocal cord repair, from [the] time being on the ventilator, and get all his organs back up and all his muscles working again, mentally, he needs to come back from this and return to a state of health. So this may take a little time.”

Wow. Watch the full video (below):

Our thoughts are with Michal and Lucie, and all his loved ones.

We hope he makes a full recovery.
