Mat Franco Wins 'America's Got Talent'
Mat Franco was declared the winner of America’s Got Talent Wednesday night, and the magician will headline his own show in Vegas.
America's Got Talent Finale
With voting closed, the America’s Got Talent finale welcomed the top six finalists to the stage, as well as a few guest performers. Each finalist got to share the stage with some famous friends: Miguel Dakota sang a duet with Lenny Kravitz, and AcroArmy performed with Travis Barker.
And, throughout the show, the finalists were eliminated until there were only two left standing: singer Emily West and magician Mat Franco.
