It’s time to find out which of the Four Finalists on America’s Got Talent will take home one million dollars, and become a headline act in Las Vegas!Â Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel are in the house along with host Nick Cannon.Â Performing live tonight are David Copperfield, the Goo Goo Dolls, Cirque de Soleil and many more! Read on for all of the highlights, and to find out which act wins…
The Four Finalists, Jackie Evancho, Prince Poppycock, Michael Grimm, and Fighting Gravity, come out onto the stage and a montage is shown of their live performances last night along with the judges’ comments.
Nick announces that Prince Poppycock will be performing with legend Donna Summer tonight! Footage is shown of the pair meeting in Poppycock’s trailer, before he takes the stage live in a hot pink pompadour wig! Donna Summer joins him and they do a medley of her songs!
Cirque de Soleil’s cast of Love performs live next, with Nick Cannon saying it won’t be long until we learn the first result.
Michael Grimm now has the opportunity to perform with his musical heroine, Jewel!Â They do a duet of Me and Bobby McGee!
Fighting Gravity is ready to perform with a music legend – Lionel Ritchie! The act does their thing to Ritchie’s Dancing on the Ceiling!
In a hilarious segment of the show, rejected contestant Spongetta is brought back to sing In My Studio with Nick Cannon – and surprise guest, T- Pain! This is followed by a very funny montage of the craziest auditions, who are then brought out live to perform! Ouch!
Sarah Brightman has come to sing with Jackie Evancho, who is utterly enchanted to meet her.Â Side-by-side they sing a beautiful opera piece.
The legendary David Copperfield takes the stage to perform live! An empty box is brought out on stage, and David suddenly appears in it on a motorcycle! He does a neat illusion with his thumbs, then takes us into his ‘warehouse’ where he gets in a vise-like box and shortens himself until he’s just a head and feet! Amazing!
The Goo Goo Dolls now perform live.Â They do their hit tune, Slide!
Finally, Nick calls out the Final Four to do the first result. The act finishing in fourth place after America’s vote, and leaving the competition now is…Prince Poppycock! A bit of a surprise despite Piers hitting the buzzer on his act last night.
Now, for one more act, the dream is now about to end. In third place, and leaving the competition is…Fighting Gravity.Â Not such a surprise, as many voters likely assumed they are guaranteed to have a Vegas show regardless of the outcome of AGT. In fact, Sharon asks for front row seats on their opening night!
Before the winner is revealed, we’re treated to Usher performing his hit, DJ Got Us Falling In Love Again!
It’s now time for the moment we’ve all been waiting for – the reveal of the winner. Is it Michael Grimm or Jackie Evancho?Â After a record-breaking number of votes, the performer who wins the fifth season of America’s Got Talent, one million dollars, and their own headlining show in Las Vegas is…Michael Grimm!
Wow!Â For those who expected Jackie to take it, this may be a surprise, but it’s very well deserved for Michael, who is just an incredible talent!
