[Spoiler alert! The following contains spoilers from season 11 of “America’s Got Talent.”]
Grace VanderWaal is the newest winner of “America’s Got Talent.”
The 12 year-old ukulele sensation narrowly beat mentalist duo The Clairvoyants to snag the show’s $1 million grand prize Wednesday night.
NFL star and magician John Dorenbos placed third.
Grace — a fan favorite who Simon Cowell has dubbed “the next Taylor Swift” — immediately fell into a crouched position and began to openly weep when host Nick Cannon called her name.
“How does it feel?” he asked her. “These are tears of joy, right?”
“Yes, of course,” she replied between sobs.
As part of her prize, Grace will also headline an upcoming concert in Las Vegas.
The tween was one of ten acts who made it all the way to the finale.
The two-hour broadcast included highlights from the show’s 11th season as well as performances by Il Divo, The Silhouettes and rock legend Stevie Nicks.
The Fleetwood Mac icon revealed she is a fan of “Talent’s” 11th champion.
“I have been watching this show from the very beginning,” Nicks said after performing a stirring version of “Landslide.”
“I have to say (Grace) reminds me a lot of me in a lot of ways. We sing very similar. We like to be weird…and we like to be a little different and not like anybody else.”
“Grace is going to the top!”
Earlier in the evening, Grace reprised her audition song, a quirky original tune titled “I Don’t Know My Name.”
Then it came time to reveal the results of America’s vote.
Crooner Sal Valentinetti, contortionist Soffie Dossi, vocal quartet Linkin’ Bridge and teen opera star Laura Bretan were all in the first group to be eliminated.
Other highlights from the evening included Dorenbos and the Clairvoyants each performing stunning illusions with a little help from Paula Abdul.
“America’s Got Talent” will return in May 2017 on NBC.

Before she was Gaga (Get to know how Lady Gaga become the star she is now)

By Breeanna Hare, CNN

A 19 year-old soon to be star, then known simply as Stefani Germanotta, poses for a photo at her parents’ place in New York city. Although photographer Malgorzata Saniewska didn’t know it at the time, it would be one of the first photo shoots of the pop star lady Gaga.
  • Malgorzata Saniewska worked in a New York restaurant with the future Lady Gaga
  • The musician was just 19 when Saniewska photographed her in 2005

Editor’s note: This story was originally published on February 24, 2012.

(CNN)We’ve come to know her as Lady Gaga, but before the world tours, “The Fame” or even the dress made of meat, photographer Malgorzata Saniewskaknew her simply as her restaurant co-worker, Stefani Germanotta.

In the summer of 2005, Saniewska happened to be tending bar at the same West Village restaurant where the 19-year-old soon-to-be star worked as a waitress.

Just 24 at the time, Saniewska had moved from her native Poland to the United States two years prior with dreams of becoming a photographer.

But to support herself, “I started working as a bartender,” she recalled. “It was definitely a money thing. I did want to go to school, but I didn’t do research on photography, my focus was to make better money.”

Keeping an eye on her bank account is what drove Saniewska to study accounting, leaving photography to become an amateur pursuit for a while.

Photographer Malgorzata Saniewska

She went from taking landscape photos of New York City to setting up her own shoots, with Gaga being among some of her first ones.

“We were colleagues, we didn’t hang out really heavily, but she’s the nicest girl ever. … She’s down-to-earth,” Saniewska said. “At that time, she gave me a CD of her first single, and I listened to it and I was really impressed. And she’s a beautiful girl. Based on her looks and her personality I thought (a photo shoot) would be great fun.”

Back then, Gaga “played piano and sang. This 19-year-old girl, she was really talented. She didn’t talk about it a lot, (but) she did say that she studied music. … I cannot even explain to you what she sounds like with just a piano, then or now,” Saniewska said. “I offered her the photo shoot, and she said yes right away.”

Gaga had the perfect location in mind: Her parents’ place on the Upper East Side.

The two young women hopped on a train and headed over there, and set to work creating what Saniewska says became Lady Gaga’s first photo shoot, although Saniewska didn’t know that at the time.

“The house was empty, it was just the two of us,” Saniewska said. “I knew she was a singer, so our focus was her and her very first piano. We just hung out in her parents’ living room, and the piano was right by the window.”

“She’s a good model, obviously,” Saniewska added with a laugh.

Armed with just her first point-and-shoot camera, Saniewska let the intimate shoot unfold organically.

“We had no plan.”

“We basically walked into her house, she did hair and makeup, picked out the clothes and we started,” she recalled. The lighting was natural: “No strobe lights, nothing special, no tripods,” she said. “It was hand-held.”

Saniewska, who’s never been formally trained, said she shot around 200 photos that day. After culling through the resulting images, choosing the photos with the best natural lighting, she presented Gaga with a CD of the pictures. The burgeoning singer was happy with them, and used some of the art for her own promotional materials.

Of course, there’s no way Saniewska could have known that the young woman she photographed on a summer day in 2005 would become the international superstar she is today. As a matter of fact, Saniewska says that at first, when she saw her as Lady Gaga, she didn’t recognize her, having been accustomed to her as a long-haired brunette waitress.

Even as Gaga’s fame continued to grow, Saniewska kept those early photos to herself “out of respect,” she said, particularly because she wasn’t in touch with her.

And then, she just so happened to bump into her old colleague in 2010.

“I actually ran into her in the East Village, and she came up to me. She was already Lady Gaga, and we spoke a little, and she leaned on me, and she said in my ear, ‘Did you know that this was my first photo shoot?’ I had no idea,” Saniewska said. “She was really excited. From that moment on I figured I could do something about it. And she’s OK with it.”

Saniewska hopes that those viewing the photos will get to see another side of Gaga, a peek at who the star was before the world knew her name.

But even with all the fame, to Saniewska, she’s “still the same girl. The fact that we ran into each other and she came up to me — she didn’t say ‘Hi’ and run off. She stood there for 15 minutes, just chatting. She remembered my name, she remembered who I was, and she had so much to say. She’s still the same person to me.”

Malgorzata Saniewska is a photographer in New York represented by Corbis Images.

Work by Rihanna ft Drake lyrics from the anticipated Album of Rihanna called Anti

Work, work, work, work, work, work
You see me I be work, work, work, work, work, work
You see me do me dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt
There’s something ’bout that work, work, work, work, work, work
When you a gon’ learn, learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
Me na care if me tired, tired, tired, tired, tired, tired5

 

Join me I deserved it
No time to have you lurking
If I got right then you might like it
You know I dealt with you the nicest
Nobody touch me, in the righteous
Nobody text me in a crisis
I believed all of your dreams are duration
You took my heart and my keys and my patience
You took my heart off my sleeve a decoration
You mistaken my love I brought for you for foundation
All that I wanted from you was to gimme
something that I never had
Something that you’ve never seen
Something that you’ve never been
But I wake up and everything’s wrong1

 

Just get ready for work, work, work, work, work, work
You see me I be work, work, work, work, work, work
You see me do me dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt
There’s something ’bout that work, work, work, work, work, work
Duh, duh, duh, nana nana nana
When you a gon’ nah nah nah nah nah nah
Before the table turn, turn turn turn

 

Baby something please
Baby don’t you leave
Don’t leave me stuck here in the streets oh oh
If I get another chance to
I will never, no never neglect you
I mean who am I to hold your past against you
I just hope that it gets to you
I hope that you see this through
I hope that you see this true
What can I say?
Please recognize I’m trying baby

I been work, work, work, work, work, work
You see me I be work, work, work, work, work, work
You see me do me dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt
There’s something ’bout that work, work, work, work, work, work
When you a gon’ learn, learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
Me na care if me tired, tired, tired, tired, tired, tired

 

Yeah, okay you need to get done, done, done, done
That’ll work, come over
We just need to slow the motion
Don’t give that away to no one
Long distance, I need you
When I see potential I just gotta see it through
If you had a twin I would still choose you
I don’t wanna rush into it, if it’s too soon
But I know you need to get done, done, done, done
If you come over
Sorry if I’m way less friendly
I got niggas tryna end me
Oh, yeah, I spilled all my emotions tonight, I’m sorry
Rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling, rolling
How many more shots until you’re rolling?
We just need a face to face
You could pick the time and a place
You spent some time away
Now you need to forward1

And gimme me all the work, work, work, work, work, work
You see me I be work, work, work, work, work, work
You see me do me dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt, dirt
There’s something ’bout that work, work, work, work, work, work
When you a gon’ learn, learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
Me na care if me tired, tired, tired, tired, tired, tired

Mmmmm
Mmmmm
Work, work, work, work, work, work
Mmmmm

Sorry by Justin Bieber Lyrics

Justin Bieber “Sorry” lyrics

[Justin]
You gotta go and get angry at all of my honesty
You know I try but I don’t do too well with apologies
I hope I don’t run out of time, can someone call a referee?
Cause I just need one more shot at forgiveness
I know you know that I made those mistakes maybe once or twice
By once or twice I mean maybe a couple of hundred times
So let me, oh let me redeem, oh redeem myself tonight
Cause I just need one more shot at second chances

Is it too late now to say sorry?
Cause I’m missing more than just your body
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say that I’m sorry now?

I’m sorry, yeah
Sorry, yeah
Sorry
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say sorry now?
I’ll take every single piece of the blame if you want me to
But you know that there is no innocent one in this game for two
I’ll go, I’ll go and then you go, you go out and spill the truth
Can we both say the words and forget this?

Is it too late now to say sorry?
Cause I’m missing more than just your body
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say that I’m sorry now?

I’m not just trying to get you back on me
Cause I’m missing more than just your body
Is it too late now to say sorry?
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say sorry now?

I’m sorry, yeah
Sorry, oh
Sorry
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say sorry now?
I’m sorry, yeah
Sorry, oh
Sorry
Yeah I know that I let you down
Is it too late to say sorry now?

Got a bunch of pre-rolls and a gold lighter
Think you on fire? You gon’ need more fire
I tell her that’s all you get like Street Fighter
Nah, walk with me, yeah, talk to me
That body cold, chess game like a pawn to me
She wanna ride with me, kick it and vibe with me
I got that long clip, fall asleep to the movie
Motherfuckin’ goonies, Cartier rubies
Coupe, no top, yeah I took off the Kufi

I might just be right with my bitch in Jacuzzi
Right, nigga, gettin’ right, nigga

All bitches at the crib, don’t invite niggas, yeah
