Michael Grimm is going to celebrate his “America’s Got Talent” win with a ring – for his girlfriend.
Grimm’s special lady inspired him to sing Percy Sledge‘s “When a Man Loves a Woman” on Tuesday night, which turned out to be his best performance of the season.
“That’s my girl,” he told the gossip website, “and I’m not going to let that one go.”
Even so, the Mississippi crooner – who takes home $1 million and a contract as a Las Vegas headliner – didn’t miss a chance at flirting with folk singer Jewel, with whom he performed “Me and Bobby McGee” during the finale.
“She smiled at me and I almost vomited,” he told People.com of the gorgeous singer. “I couldn’t believe she smiled at me that way!”
As for the woman he beat – 10-year-old Jackie Evancho – Grimm still can’t believe his luck.
