Her family members are supportive, but most of what you see has been all Jackie and I think she's been having fun with it. That's what makes it so great to watch her perform.

AGT was/is in a difficult position. They knew they had one of the most talented performers we'll see in decades, but couldn't do anything with her other than to allow her to be the 2nd place finisher since she was so young. Did you notice the order the acts appeared on the show? Jackie was nearly always last, and for good reason.

For now, her talent belongs to her coach. We'll be watching her in her grade school, the occasional appearance at a Pirate game and performing with the Pittsburgh Symphony, at the Met or Carnegie Hall once or twice a year where she'll be appreciated.

Her tools are all there. Give her some time to study her art further and her appeal will be universal. See her today at age 10, imagine her at age 25. I hope I'm around to see it.

Didn't like the way that this years contest went. Did not like Howie's mantra. Did not like the judge's choosing winners at all. They had their buzzers. That's all that was required of them. That was merely a way to sweep people off the stage in order to pull in the u-tube people. The American viewers should have picked the whole thing. I didn't like the u-tube add ins. They should have started at the beginning just as everyone else.If little Jackie's mother wanted her in the contest, she should have gotten her to the auditions like everyone else. As far as 40 years to get your money, Michael will make his money way before that just on his shows. Prince Poppycock will make his money on what's he ahead of him. One talented guy. Jackie can go sing in the opera and if she's as good as other opera stars, she will make plenty of money for mom.

Yes, Jackie was good. Prince Poppycock was very excellent. AND SO was Michael Grimm. His relaxed blues persona is what he stuck to and was what he was comfortable with. I would go see Grimm and Poppycock perform any time. Jackie, came into this as a u-tube add on. I didn't agree with that. Is she good? Yes. But to many that I have discussed this with, their opinion was that she had a stage mother who pushed her to early in life to develop her vocals. As she gets older, what will happen to them. Will her vocal cords fail her. It's happened before. Think her mom should have let her be a child before she pushed her to be a star. You are only a child once. Maybe she can add something to her act besides the heavenly stuff. Even opera has more zip. Been to many of them. Love them. Jackie needs to grow up and develop herself in society as a normal child. Not a freak of her mothers making.

I think that it is a pile of crap that Michael Grimm won. It is clear who really one look at the you tube hits. Sure Michael might make a hit. Like a one hit wonder on VH1 but Jackie Evancho was clearly the long time winner and has a full future ahead of her.

THis Shows how the b=viewing audience of AGT has changed over the years. AGT has lost many viewers. Bianca Ryan won AGT thew first season! This was before all the stupid "Vegas" stuff. If there was nothing vegas about the talented act to win, jackie woul have won. THis show is not america's got talent anymore, it's "america's best vegas act" plus 1 million dollars. keep in mind, if Grimm wants all the million dollars, he will have to wait 40 years for it to come. at the end of the show, it says this in the credits "the million dollar prize is in an annuity given out over a period of 40 YEARS". Jackie should have won that prize. Michael grimm will be 71 before he gets all he won. How ignorant is america of true talent nowadays?

pops singers are always preffered than opera singers.jackie is great compared to girls her age but compared to adult performers is not,take note of that.michael grimm is a soulful singer,he let you feel his emotion when he sings,most people connect with this kind of singing and people fell inlove with them,plus michael got this sexiness in his voice and performance and thats what teenagers and adults wants.winning a show is not about because your act is unusual or unique,there is more than that. i hope everyone realize it.

I was blown away when Nick annouced Micheal Grimm as the winner. I was 100% sure Jackie would have won. Although Micheal was there from the very beginning and Jackie didn't come in until the middle of the season, Jackie was clearly the better singer than Micheal was. I mean come on...I have never seen a 10 year old sing opera like that let alone sing period and I was for sure she would have won it. Good luck Micheal and hope you succeed.

It is interesting that NBC posted on their voting page that they had the right to cancel any and all votes for any reason. Food for thought. I think given some of the past failures the sponsors directed the outcome especially since M. Grimm has lagged in the voting all season. I think America got robbed and so did Jackie.

i think the vote was rigged... no way jackie gets beat by a less talented night club act....wont watch agt. again...jackie rules...

America may have talent but it certainly doesn't have taste if the audience really think they picked as winner the contestant who had the most talent. Makes me shudder for what the same people may do in the November elections.
