Mississippi's Got Talent!

A Waveland Mississippi man won NBC reality show "America's Got Talent" Wednesday night, making him a million dollars richer.  30 year old Michael Grimm beat out 10 year old Opera phenom Jackie Evancho, shocking many, including himself.  "Is this really happening," the Mississippi Blues singer said.

Other finalists were Prince Poppycock, the outlandishly costumed operatic creation of Los Angeles store clerk John Quale, and the performance troupe Fighting Gravity, a group of 13 fraternity brothers from Virginia Tech at Blacksburg, Virginia

As winner, Grimm will headline a national tour and collect a $1 million prize.
