Fans of the long-running talent show America’s Got Talent have been watching week after week all summer long to see who would be taking home the million dollar prize and be crowned Season 13 champion!


Tuesday night (Sep 18) served as the finals of the competition with the remaining 10 acts, including singer Michael Ketterer, magician Shin Lim, comedian Samuel J Comroe, dance group Zucaroh, and teen singer Courtney Hadwin, giving America one last impression.


All the votes were counted for Wednesday’s (Sep 19) finale, but of course – they made us wait until the very last second of the broadcast to find out who won!

While we were patiently waiting for the results, the episode was jam-packed full of, well…talent! Among the awesome performances Wednesday night was legendary rock band KISS performed “Detroit Rock City,” and Michael Ketterer performed a song written by the one and only Garth Brooks!


With only about 20 minutes left in the live broadcast, host Tyra Banks revealed the Top 5 – Ketterer, Zucaroh, Shin Lim, Samuel J Comroe, and Brian King Joseph.

Sadly, moments later, one of our favorite acts – Michael Ketterer was also sent home.

Comroe and Joseph were eliminated next, leaving Zucaroh and Shin Lim as the remaining two acts.

With just moments left, Banks revealed that the winner of America’s Got Talent‘s 13th season is …. Shin Lim!

Congratulations, Shin Lim! Watch him win America’s Got Talent in the video below.
