Anna Graceman Rides Motley Crue’s ‘Home Sweet Home’ to ‘America’s Got Talent’ Finals
American's cutest '80s rocker, Anna Graceman, is now a finalist on NBC's 'America's Got Talent' after wowing the judges and viewers with her version of Motley Crue's 'Home Sweet Home.' The 11-year-old from Juneau, Alaska even caught the eye of Crue bassist Nikki Sixx, but not in a creepy way. Sixx retweeted our story from yesterday about her performance, writing "So cute."
Graceman's stage presence and puppy-dog sweetness have made her a fan favorite. Tuesday night's episode of 'America's Got Talent' was the most voted-on ever. She seems to be a hit off-stage as well. The photo gallery at her page on the television network's website shows her standing confidently next to all the contestants, most of whom tower over her like a Manhattan skyscraper.
Now that she's amongst the final ten, it's tough to say if Graceman will continue to surprise judges with songs seemingly outside her maturity level, or if she'll stick to listed influences like Taylor Swift and Alicia Keys. As much as we'd like to see her attempt a Black Sabbath or AC/DC hit, her future on the show may be best served if she sticks to power-ballads from the '80s. An 11-year-old singing 'Every Rose Has It's Thorn' is cute. An 11-year-old singing 'Enter Sandman' is something from a Stephen King book.
