Mayyas and Kristy Sellars Deliver a STUNNING Performance | NBC's AGT Finale 2022

The Contestants who compete on America's Got Talent run the gamut in terms of, well, talent. So many people have graced the show's iconic stage: singers, dancers, magicians, and even a father-son duo who specializes in dog tricks. Including dog backflips. Yes, it's just as incredible as you're imagining. 

How to Watch

Watch AGT Tuesdays at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock

But only 17 Acts have won the show. See the full list, below. 

Season 17: The Mayyas

The Lebanese dance troupe wowed from the beginning and ultimately took home the competition for Season 17. 

Season 16: Dustin Tavella

Agt Winners Dustin Tavella

In 2021, Tavella became AGT's third magician winner, and his act combining classic and heartfelt magic left Judges Howie Mandel, Simon CowellSofía Vergara, and Heidi Klum stunned. 

Agt Winners Brandon Leake

Leake was AGT's first spoken-word poetry winner. His audition, in which he performed a poem about his late sister, will move you deeply. It certainly affected, Mandel, Cowell, and Vergara

Season 14: Kodi Lee

Kodi Lee AGT Season 14 Winner

Lee, a blind and autistic singer, brought one of the most transformative moments to the AGT stage with his concert-level piano-playing skills and heavenly voice. It brought the Judges, including Julianne Hough, to tears. 

Agt Winners Shin Lim

Mandel dubbed magician Shin Lim's slight-of-hand the best up-close magic to cross the AGT stage. It's no surprise, then, that his card tricks brought him all the way to the finish line. 

Agt Winners Darci Lynne Farmer

To help her with her shyness, Darci Lynne Farmer's mother bought her a rabbit puppet. And she turned that puppet into a dazzling musical-ventriloquist act that helped her win AGT Season 12. 

Agt Winners Grace Vanderwaal

Cowell predicted VanderWaal would be the next Taylor Swift after her phenomenal audition, which featured her playing a ukulele and singing an original song with the skill of a 40-year-old vocalist. For context: She was just 12 at the time. But VanderWaal's performance brought all four Judges to their feet—and earned her a Golden Buzzer from Mandel. 

Agt Winners Paul Zerdin

Zerdin was was the second ventriloquist to take home the AGT crown—but he wasn't the last. The Judges couldn't get enough of his first audition, which included a microphone out-of-sync trick you have to see to believe. 

Agt Winners Mat Franco

Magician Mat Franco didn't just do a card trick with his first AGT audition. He did a card show, weaving together a narrative about Judges Klum, Mandel, Howard Stern, and Mel B., and matching it to cards he drew from a genuinely shuffled deck. To call it impressive is an understatement. All four Judges gave him a "yes," and he went on to win the competition. 

Season 8: Kenichi Ebina

Agt Winners Kenichi Ebina

Judge Mel B thought Ebina's head fell off his body during his original audition—and when you watch it, you'll see why. The dancer-martial artist's ability to combine precise, robotic choreography with gravity-defying acts of strength—like lifting his horizontal body up with just his feet—wowed the Judges. As Stern told Ebina, "I could watch you all day." We could, too. 

Agt Winners Olate Dogs

Olate Dogs, a father-son dog trick team, had Judges Mandel, Stern, and Sharon Osbourne grinning ear to ear over their pooches' mind-boggling acrobatic skills. When you've trained a dog to do backflips, yes, you should win America's Got Talent. 

Agt Winners Landau Eugene Murphy Jr

Jazz singer Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. was the fourth musician in a row to win AGT. When you see his audition, a cover of Cole Porter's "I Got You Under My Skin," you'll see exactly why. 

Agt Winners Michael Grimm

Mandel became a Judge on AGT in Season 5, alongside Osbourne and Piers Morgan. All three of them were mesmerized by Grimm's first audition: a soulful rendition of Cindy Walker's "You Don't Know Me." 

Agt Winners Kevin Skinner

Skinner first made Judges Morgan, Osbourne, and David Hasselhoff laugh with stories about his time as a farmworker—specifically, a chicken catcher. But by the end of his soul-baring cover of "If Tomorrow Never Comes" by Garth Brooks, he won them over. And the rest of the world. 

Agt Winners Neal E Boyd

Boyd, then 32 years old and an insurance salesman, wanted to win AGT to make his mother proud. And won he did: His chills-inducing talents as an opera singer took him to the end. Sadly, Boyd passed away in 2018. 

Agt Winners Terry Fator

The Judges' table—this time consisting of Hasselhoff, Morgan, and Osbourne—was awe-struck by Fator, a ventriloquist whose doll does impressions of female singers. You haven't lived until you've seen a dummy belt a cover of "At Last" by Etta James. 

Agt Winners Bianca Ryan

The then-11-year-old blew Judges Brandy, Hasselhoff, and Morgan away with her cover of "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" by Jennifer Holliday. She was an instant yes for the next round and, ultimately, won the competition.
