In the season finale of America's Got Talent, it all came down to the last four finalists vying for the $1 million cash prize and the chance to headline their own show in Las Vegas!
On Tuesday, Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., Team iLuminate, POPLYFE and Silhouettes each performed for one last time to place themselves in position to win the coveted prizes.
Tonight, each finalist got to perform with a special guest to help boost their chances to win the popular contest. Landau was paired with Patti LaBelle, who performed "You're All I Need," in a stunning duet that had audiences raving. Team iLuminate had a flashy set with Cobra Starship, which was a visual spectacle that lit up the crowd. Silhouettes did an amazing dance number that went with LeAnn Rimes' sweet voice that caught everyone's attention. POPLYFE got everyone moving in and out of their seats with their duet with the great Stevie Wonder. Four spectacular performances had judges wishing they could award each contestant. But alas, only one could walk away a winner.
On top of the finalists performing one last time, acts like Def Leppard, Tony Bennett, One Republic, Jackie Evancho and even the Cirque du Soleil performers all graced the AGT stage for the grand finale.
After a lengthy elimination process, it came down to the final two contestants, Silhouettes and Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. After it was all said and done, Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. was announced the season six winner of America's Got Talent! A well-earned victory for the man who started out as a car washer!
