We’re here for the finale of America’s Got Talent Season 8, but before we find out the winner of AGT 2013, we’ll have to sit through two hours of hopefully incredible performances and predictably painful eliminations on America’s Got Talent 2013. Who of the final six will be eliminated? And who will win $1,000,000 on AGT 2013 and their own show in Las Vegas? I’m sort of rooting for the quirky, geeky comic Taylor Williamson. Who is your pick to win it all on America’s Got Talent 2013? Stay right here as we watch it all unfold tonight during our AGT Season 8 finale live recap!
Last night’s performances on AGT 2013 were pretty amazing and received mostly rave reviews from the judges. Magician Collins Key continued to blow the judges away with his unbelievable tricks. There’s no denying that Kenichi Ebina‘s creative performances show off his talent. Judge Howie Mandel claimed he should win it all! Of course, he said the same thing about other performances, too. The judges adored Taylor Williamson, while the audience hooted and hollered at his facial expressions. Cami Bradley wooed the judges with her ability to change up songs and make them her own. Country singer Jimmy Rose received positive reviews for his first performance but wasn’t as dynamic on the second one. Finally, Forte finished off the night with praises that they have great harmony and have even made an opera fan out of judge Mel. B on America’s Got Talent 2013.
So who of the final top six acts will win the grand prize on America’s Got Talent Season 8? We’ll soon find out!
WARNING: AMERICA’S GOT TALENT 2013 SPOILERS AHEAD!
This post contains AGT Season 8 spoilers from our AGT 2013 Live Recap. Please stop reading here if you do not want to see the performances tonight on AGT 2013 Season 8 tonight!
We start the finale of America’s Got Talent 2013 seeing clips of last night’s spectacular performances. Tonight’s first performance features The Rockettes. They’re lighting up the stage with their colorful garb.
Now we get to see the top six having fun in the Orville Lounge. Man, that looks fun! Give me some of that popcorn! Nice eyeglasses, everyone! Orville-style!
Icona Pop, a Swedish female duo, takes the AGT 2013 stage next with a song that seems to be called “We Could Do This All Night,” because that’s what they keep saying. Wow, they have a lot of dancers with them. Catchy tune!
Next we see behind the scenes with AGT Season 8 judges., including Howie Mandel‘s refusals to shower in “poop water.” Whaaaaat? Heidi Klum had no problem with it. Howard Stern says he has to be in the makeup chair longer than anyone–obviously (his words, not mine). In the Snapple Room, they all make fun of Mel B.’s inability to pronounce “ventriloquist.” Howard, of course, makes fun of Howie’s obsession with Twitter. Is he really losing followers every week? Then there’s the almost-kiss between the guys, and then the Titanic hug. They do all agree about one thing–how much fun they have had with each other this season.
Time for Cami Bradley to perform “Best I Ever Had” with star Gavin DeGraw. They sing beautifully together, both at the piano to start with before getting up and getting peppy! This girl is going to be a star whether she wins America’s Got Talent 2013 or not.
Kenichi then joins the group Il Divo and Heather Headley singing “Can You Feel the Love Tonight?” I’m confused, though. Where’s Kenichi? Did he orchestrate the whole thing–or do the lighting? I wanted to see some moves!
Taylor Williamson then joins with James Lipton from “Inside the Actor’s Studio” with some kind of talk show set-up. Taylor answers a bunch of questions, including his favorite curse word, “Dick Cheney.” It’s too late to vote, he says. When asked what he would like to hear when he gets to Heaven, Taylor answered congratulations from God on winning America’s Got Talent 2013. Think he will? We’ll find out in another hour or so!
James Lipton then praises host Nick Cannon for all he does for the show and how he supports the acts. He is the one made to do crazy things for the show. One of his favorite things is watching white people dancing. He loves his job and watching people reach for their dreams. Howard tells Nick that he deserves an Emmy, and he doesn’t like watching white people dance, either.
Before we get to any final results, let’s watch another illusion from Collins Keys–with Kathie Lee and Hoda! Amazing once again! How does he do these things? Magic, he says.
Now for some shots of the judges hanging out with the top six acts. Funny stuff, including Taylor’s flirting with Heidi. We’re an hour in, and no results yet, but we are treated to a performance by Forte and the great Josh Groban! Okay, these guys are good, but I’m not sure they are the caliber of Groban. What do you think? Well, maybe in time. Their harmony is really good as they sing “Brave” with him.
Now it’s a country duo with Jimmy Rose and Dierks Bentley singing “I Hold On.” Dierks says Jimmy is a great guy and is representing country music well.
Now some flashbacks to how the show started this season. Don’t those clips always make America’s Got Talent look so fun? Well, it is a pretty fun show with all its variety. And AGT Season 8 has had some of the best talent ever. My humble opinion.
Still no results, but how about some Earth, Wind, and Fire singing their classic “September”! I’ll take that. They even have a new album coming out: “Now, Then, & Forever.”
Hey, it’s time for some results on AGT 2013! The first act to be eliminated is . . . Cami Bradley. Well, that really surprises me. I thought she might win it all. Oh, well. She will be a star. Great voice! I’ll buy her CD! Nick agrees with Howie that Cami’s dream is not over; he was just reading the teleprompter!
Fifth place now is . . . Collins Keys. He’s so talented, too, only seventeen, and has a great future ahead, don’t you think?
America has voted . . . . The next act to leave the competition is Forte. Hey, they’ll have a future, too, just not in Vegas.
Before we get onto more results, country music entertainer of the year Luke Bryan takes the Radio City stage singing “That’s My Kind of Night.”
Now on to some more results. Let’s do it! Third place goes to Jimmy Rose. He’s a nice guy, a good country singer, and we haven’t seen the last of him, I’ll bet.
Who will win? These are two amazing acts. Kenichi and Taylor. Will a comedian finally win it all on America’s Got Talent Season 8?
And the winter of America’s Got Talent 2013 is . . . Kenichi Ebina! The comedian comes in second place again. Kenichi deserves it, though, huh?
Taylor was funny again, saying that “number two” is a disgusting number.
What do you think about the final results?
