Watch Stevie Nicks’ Flawless Performance of ‘Landslide’ on America’s Got Talent

In the words of 12-year-old finalist Grace VanderWaal, she's "a true hero”

Leave it to Stevie Nicks to steal everyone’s thunder.

The former leading lady of Fleetwood Mac graced the stage on the season finale of America’s Got Talent Wednesday night, delivering a flawless performance of the band’s classic hit “Landslide.”

Nicks, now 68, was introduced by AGT finalist Grace VanderWaal, this season’s prodigy singer-songwriter, entertainment news site Hollywood Life reports.

Nicks is “a true hero of inspiration,” the 12-year-old VanderWaal said, before turning the mic over to the master.

At the end of her gripping performance, the audience erupted as Nicks hit her high note and brought the judges to their feet for a standing ovation.

The soft-rock icon left the stage only after a few words of encouragement for her young fan-girl.

“I have to say she reminds me a lot of me in a lot of ways,” Nicks said of VanderWaal. “She’s got it… Whatever happens, Grace is going to the top.”
