America's Got Talent winner Michael Grimm is more than just a reality show champion and recent fiance.

He's also now an official professional singer, having signed a deal with Epic Records this week.

Currently rehearsing for America’s Got Talent Live, a tour which begins on Friday and include fellow finalists Prince Poppycock and Jackie Evancho, Grimm will aim to release a solo album in March 2011.

Soon after conquering the aforementioned competition, Grimm said of his eventual CD: “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."

Sounds like a confidence crooner. We'll be curious to hear the final product.

It's been a good week for Michael Grimm. A very, very, very good week.

The singer was voted this year's America's Got Talent winner on Wednesday night, and then followed that up by proposing to his girlfriend on Ellen yesterday. Moreover... she said yes!

After dedicating a performance of "When a Man Love a Woman" to his gal pal of three years, Lucy, Grimm got down on one knee and popped the most famous question known to man (a close second being: Are those real?).

Lucy happily accepted the proposal, after which Grimm Gushed: "She's been there for me... Once you find that good woman you hang on to her."

Amen, brother! Congratulations to the couple!

In an episode upset that THG never saw coming, Michael Grimm was named the winner of America's Got Talent last night.

Heck, we didn't even include the singer in our reader poll this week, as we asked fans to choose between Jackie Evancho (who finished second) and Prince Poppycock (who finished fourth). Perhaps we should stick to making fun of Kate Gosselin and get out of the prediction business.

Did you vote for Michael Grimm as the America's Got Talent champion?

Grimm takes home $1 million for his victory and will headline a show in Las Vegas.

A Mississippi native, the blues crooner says he'll use some of that money to purchase a home for his grandparents, who lost everything in Hurricane Katrina. Looks like America may have chosen a deserving winner after all.
