"@michael_grimm You were on the wrong show. @NBCTheVoice would have been a better fit for you. I can't believe @AGT chose dog tricks over awesome singing ! It's one of the reasons I prefer NBC The Voice over AGT. The devaluation of singers on AGT is shameful! #AGTChampions," a fan wrote. Adding to that another said, "@AGT I can't BELIEVE you didn't put Michael Grimm through SMH! So disappointed in you guys. #AGT #AGTChampions."
"How can you call it champions... when you don’t put Michael Grimm through??? And why do I care so much. Whatever... girl bye. #AGTChampions," shared a fan. While another wrote, "@howiemandel #AGTChampions can not believe you didn’t vote for Michael Grimm! He was definitely the most deserving!"
"Michael Grimm got robbed he should have gone threw #AGTChampions Alexa was good but I thought Michael was better," a fan wrote.
Michael won 'America's Got Talent' when he appeared in 2010. But sadly his version of Etta James’ 'I’d Rather Go Blind' wasn't the best to take him ahead in the competition.
