Dutch singer Glennis Grace makes it to the final of America's Got Talent
Dutch singer Glennis Grace has made it into the final of America’s Got Talent. If Glennis wins, she’ll take home one million dollars and the opportunity to give a headline show in Las Vegas. Whether she wins or not, she has already done the Netherlands proud!
A standing ovation at the semi-final
After singing This Woman’s Work by Kate Bush in the semi-finals, which got her a standing ovation, she made it to the finals. However, she ran the risk of being eliminated, as her low score meant that she was placed third from last, until she was saved by the public voting system known as Dunkin’ Save.
After the ultimate result of being named a finalist, she expressed her gratitude to the American public. She said, “Thank you for saving me. I am so glad that I can go to the finals, that was my goal.”
