America’s Got Talent star stuns crowd with original song about bullies

Bullying is a common topic in towns across America, and one preteen just put it in the spotlight on a national stage.

Grace VanderWaal has earned millions of fans across the country for her performances on NBC’s hit show “America’s Got Talent.”

On Tuesday night, VanderWaal performed an original song called Clay, dealing with bullies.

“Your silly words, I won’t live in such a world. Cause your punches and your names, all your jokes and stupid games. They don’t work, no they don’t hurt. Watch them just go right through me, because they mean nothing to me. I’m not trying to change my shape, ’cause baby I’m not clay.”

A winner will be named on Wednesday night, beginning at 7 p.m. on NBC.
