Singer Michael Grimm wins 'America's Got Talent'

Crooner beat 10-year-old soprano sensation Jackie Evancho

Bluesy crooner Michael Grimm was named the winner of "America's Got Talent" on Wednesday night.

The title was handed to the Waveland, Miss., native during the season finale of the NBC variety competition, following a viewer vote after Tuesday's performance show.

Grimm, 30, looked shocked when he heard his name announced. Then he bent to hug and earnestly console the runner-up, 10-year-old soprano sensation Jackie Evancho of Pittsburgh.
