Starlet Grace VanderWaal To Perform In Hometown Suffern

If you were looking forward to seeing Suffern-starlet Grace VanderWaal on "America’s Got Talent" next Tuesday you’ll be disappointed to learn she is not set perform that night. But if you wait four days you’ll get to see her live.

Lafayette Theatre in Suffern announced that VanderWaal will perform a free concert on Saturday, July 30 via their Facebook page.

The 12-year-old VanderWaal, who became an internet sensation in June with the performance of her original song “I Don’t Know My Name,” was labeled the “next Taylor Swift” by judge Simon Cowell .

The episode had been taped in March in Pasadena, California before it aired on June 7. She was given the golden buzzer by judge Howie Mandel and secured a spot in the live performance round, which is set to being on July 26. VanderWaal most recently performed at the Palisades Credit Union Park and released a cover of Meghan Trainor's "All About That Bass."

Cara Hutchison, a spokesperson for VanderWaal, confirmed she will not be featured on Tuesday’s show. The live round of AGT goes on for several weeks and a schedule of contestant performances has not been released by NBC.

On Thursday, Hutchison was unsure whether VanderWaal knew when she’d perform next on AGT.

Joanna Chin, a spokesperson for NBC Entertainment, said the show's producers decide when each act will perform. The live round shows begin on July 26 and will air every Tuesday and Wednesday with a break during the Olympics through Sept. 14.

Doors open for the concert at the Lafayette Theatre at 4:30 p.m. and the show begins at 5:30 p.m. After the two-set performance VanderWaal will take part in an exclusive question-and-answer session.

Tickets are available at the Lafayette Box Office, located at 97 Lafayette Ave. in Suffern.
