'America's Got Talent's' Michael Grimm signs Epic record deal

michael-grimm-agt-320.jpgAfter winning "America's Got Talent" Season 5 over Jackie Evancho, Fighting Gravity and Prince Poppycock, and proposing to his girlfriend on "Ellen," Michael Grimm has some more good news -- he is signing a record deal with Epic Records, reports E! Online.

Unlike "American Idol," which awards its contestants record deals when they win, "AGT" does not have that in place. The contestants instead get prize money and they used to headline a Las Vegas show, but now they simply headline an "AGT" tour.

That's great news for the talented singer who used to just be playing gigs in Mississippi. What do you think, "America's Got Talent" fans? Will you buy his album?
