It came down to dogs and a comic. The winner of the seventh season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent was crowned last night, with Olate Dogs pulling off the win.
At the start of the show, Nick Cannon promised viewers that they were in store for an “insane night” and that’s what it proved to be. Between performances by Flo Rida, Ne-Yo, Justin Bieber, Green Day and the Blue Man Group, he slowly revealed the results following Wednesday’s performance episode.
“I never would have imagined when we started this journey together that here we would be with such incredible talent,” Howard Stern said about the season, reports CBS News. “When we first started I said, 'I don't know. Are we going to find anybody?' But we've found some incredible people.” This was Stern’s first season as a judge on the show.
Howie Mandel also called it an “amazing year,” notes USA Today. “Especially with our new judge Howard Stern. It was a thrill...”
The show featured David Garibaldi and his CMYK's performing with Flo Rida, Olate Dogs and The Untouchables on stage with Frankie J, William Close playing his giant harp with One Republic and comic Tom Cotter performing with Joan Rivers.
The Untouchables was the first act to go, followed by sand artist Joe Castillo. Garibaldi was next, then Close, who the judges had expected to win it all.
"Don’t be sad, because it’s my last show, too. So we’re leaving together!" Sharon Osbourne told The Untouchables, making it official that she is leaving.
It then came down to Cotter and Olate Dogs, who won. It was Cotter who had the last word on the season, though, telling Cannon that his experience was “great. And I'm going to fall down the stairs to get my own million dollars tonight.”
