Singer/Songwriter, Michael Grimm has an estimated net worth $3 million. Winning in the fifth season of America's Got Talent has jump started Grimm's net worth. Grimm, an everyday guy who's trying to make it big in the music industry, auditioned for American Got Talent in 2010. The judges were blown away by his performance and made it through to Las Vegas Week. Despite being criticised by Piers Morgan for performing 'over 90 seconds' at Vegas Week, later in the competition, Sharon Osbourne revealed that her husband was 'rooting for him.'
The Southern Soul singer sailed through the competition. But it was his heart-felt performance, When a Man Loves a Woman (dedicated to his girlfriend) made him a worthy winner of America's Got Talent 2010, securing a $1 million contract. While most artists will plan to bow their winnings on a flashy car or designer gears, the humble winner plan to spend part of his winnings on building a home for his grandparents. Since becoming the winner of America's Got Talent, Grimm is the headliner of the American Got Talent tour shows – and it's gets better for the talented singer: alongside Smokey Robinson, Grimm performed at the 37th Candlelight concert.
He's also signed to Epic Records and his latest album was released in spring (2011). The self-titled album debuted at no. 13 on the US Pop Music Charts, selling approximately 23,000 copies nationwide. The released single, Falling was penned and recorded by Alicia Keys. Before winning the competition, Grimm was previously signed to Mattikay Records, where he released three albums. The last album, Leave Your Hat On, did relatively well as it stole the hot spot on the US Heat charts and peaked at number 19 on the US R&B chart. His contract with the record label ended in 2010. The best was yet to come: Grimm married his long-term girlfriend, Lucie Zolcerova. He proposed to her on the Ellen DeGeneres show.
