Michael Grimm, Americas’s Got Talent Winner, proposes to girlfriend live on TV

She answered “YES!”

Grimm, 30, revealed his plans to marry Lucy and that she was the inspiration for his performance of “When a Man Loves a Woman” during Tuesday’s finals.

“She’s been there for me,” Grimm tells DeGeneres during the show, which airs Friday. “Once you find that good woman you hang on to her.”

While interviewing him, DeGeneres called Lucy down from the audience, and Grimm got on one knee to pop the question.

Michael Grimm, a Mississippi blues singer who won $1 million, plans to use the money to buy his grandparents a house.

MTV VMA 2010: Lady Gaga is the big winner!

Gaga shares the second place of artists who won most MTV Video Music Awards in a single night with Norwegian group A-HA – the big winners of 1986. British rocker Peter Gabriel set the record of nine competitive wins in 1987 for his innovative video “Sledgehammer.”

Most of Lady Gaga’s Moonman statuettes were for her video “Bad Romance,” a futuristic clip featuring plenty of skin-baring scenes and bizarre costumes.


I was so nervous for tonight that I would let my fans down,” she tearfully said as she accepted the final award for video of the year.

Famous for her outré fashion sense as for her musical sensibilities, Lady Gaga led the field with 13 nominations. In each of her three trips to the stage – the other awards were announced off-camera – she wore a different costume, including what looked like a large black trash bag.
