A Michael Grimm Fairytale

Michael Grimm topped Jackie Evancho on America's Got Talent and we were there for the big moment. SheKnows caught up with Grimm, Evancho and Prince Poppycock, plus Nick Cannon, Jewel and the judges. Don't miss the SheKnows red carpet videos and more, live from the America’s Got Talent finale!

Nick Cannon's candor

With rumors swirling about Nick Cannon and wife Mariah Carey expecting their first baby, Cannon reveals he has bigger dreams than showbiz for his kids. "I want a doctor or an astronaut," he told SheKnows. "I'd say, 'Entertainment? You're not reaching far enough. I want you to be the president, a world leader or a heart surgeon.'"

Finally, the guys from the Goo Goo Dolls were sporting Clownvis Presley t-shirts and feeling the Clownvis love. "America's Got Talent, but sometimes, they've got no taste," quipped frontman Johnny Rzeznik.

SheKnows isn't sure if he was riffing on his bandmates or referring to the winner, but it's sure to ring true to those who've taken to Twitter in a rage over how Grimm won America's Got Talent, instead of Evancho, Poppycock or Cannon's personal fave, Fighting Gravity. But hey, Grimm got the votes! End of story and season.

Where did Deanna Barnett get the right to say "most viewers" expected Jackie to win? You were so wrong. Admit it.You called this wrong, not "most viewers". Obviously "most viewers" voted for Michael Grimm, the clear winner. He was surprised. It has been a show business saying for years not to go up against children or animals, which could have been his fear. Although Jackie has an amazing talent so does Michael, and this was a contest for a Las Vegas show and extensive tour. Certainly now anywhere a 10 year old belongs. Thinking voters could have been expected to take that into account when voting. I wish all 4 final contestants Great Futures, because they were all fantastic.! Yes, I voted for Michael.

Great Mike its nice to see a guy from Mississippi win , as my father was from Woodland ,Mississipi and he would say the south will rise again, and you sure have done that with your singing. Best of luck in the future and take good care of your grandma she's special .

Congratulations Michael . I agree with Linda. I also have been watching Michael Grimm all along . I knew he would win last night . I got so happy and excited when I saw him sing the night before " When A Man Loves A Woman ." As I watched last night, as they announced him as winner I clapped my hands so hard , and yelled (I knew it, I knew it ) I can't wait to hear more of him , and how he will be blessing others with his singing . I believe Michael Grimm is a very humble and sensitive young man. I very happy he won.
