‘America’s Got Talent’ Crowns Its Winner
“America's Got Talent” chose dancer Kenichi Ebina as the winner of Season 8 on Thursday's finale.
The incredibly limber dancer took home the grand prize of $1 million and the opportunity to headline a show in Las Vegas. "Oh my god, I don't know what I can tell, but it's amazing," Kenichi said after host Nick Cannon announced his victory. "Also, I want to thank my wife and daughter [for] being supportive all the way through. And my mom, brother, sister, and all my friends -- and all the fan support. [It's] crazy!"

“AGT” judge Howard Stern explained to “Extra's” AJ Calloway, “This guy is more than a dancer. He's a creative genius. His body moves like no other.”
Taylor Williamson, a standup comedian, finished second, while Jimmy Rose, a country singer and songwriter, finished in third place. Rounding out the top five were Forte, an operatic tenor trio, and teenage magician Collins Key.
