americas got talent winnerRecap the Americas Got Talent Season 5 finale and find out who was crowned the winner last night on NBC.

Last night, amidst all the Top Chef, Big Brother and Survivor buzz, NBC aired the America’s Got Talent Season 5 finale and announced the winner.

The finale had the final four acts, Prince Poppycock, Michael Grimm, Jackie Evancho and Fighting Gravity. All of the contestants sat wondering who was going to go home with the America’s Got Talent Season 5 grand prize of $1 million and a gig in Las Vegas.

Prince Poppycock, who might be the odd one out of the bunch, wowed audiences all season with his theatrical singing talents.

Michael Grimm captivated the heart of millions with his soulful voice and heartfelt back-story of his struggles throughout life, but was it enough to crown the Mississippi born singer as the winner of America’s Got Talent Season 5?

Jackie Evancho is the 10-year old opera singer who took the judges by complete surprise. As Sharon Osbourne dubbed her “angel” this little girl has the most amazing voice I have ever heard. From the first time we heard Jackie on America’s Got Talent Season 5, rumors spread that she was lip-syncing, because no one would believe a 10-year old girl could have such a powerful voice. Once America were convinced that she was in fact the real-deal, Jackie Evancho found herself the front runner in NBC’s enormous talent show. Did Jackie win over America enough to grant her a victory in America’s Got Talent Season 5?

Taking a break from singers, our final of the four acts is Fighting Gravity. While not as unique as Prince Poppycock’s costumes and makeup, Fighting Gravity found themselves a nice change of pace from the other three contestants, who were all singers. Did the dance crew, who entertained audiences with their glow-in-the-dark routines, do enough to beat out their talented competition?

Last night on NBC, judges, Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel alongside host Nick Cannon, announced the final two contestants in America’s Got Talent Season 5.

The votes were in and Michael Grimm and Jackie Evancho were one step closer to victory. We were down to two as Fighting Gravity and Prince Poppycock were eliminated from the competition.

The time has come, Michael Grimm, the soul singer from Mississippi stands alongside 10-year-old Opera sensation Jackie Evancho. We pan to the judges and they announce that the winner of America’s Got Talent Season 5 is… Michael Grimm!

While I was pulling for Jackie Evancho to win, I believe Michael Grimm is equally as talented. I am so happy for him and know that he will make the best of his Vegas gig and that $1 million prize he just won.

Congratulations to Michael Grimm for being announced as the winner of America’s Got Talent Season 5 last night on NBC.

Keep an eye out for Jackie Evancho as this is not the last we have seen of the little singing angel.
