Klum told Fox News Digital that she also believed that America had got it right. They were amazing. They were Vegas-ready, as I mentioned before. They are a great addition to the ‘AGT’ show in Las Vegas.

“There’s an amazing show already there with a lot of our favorites from the past and they will join now and I think it will be even more amazing. “


Klum said that seeing the Mayyas perform for the first time during the auditions was her favorite moment of the season. She explained that they are “magical”.

“Normally you see dancers and it’s all quite like flat on the ground. They were constantly stacking on top of one another, creating new shapes and other things, you know. It was both a surprise and a WOW over there. “

” They really brought something special the show,” she said.

The former Victoria’s Secret Angel also provided an update on her daughter Leni, who recently started her first year of college in New York City. Leni is not only attending college but also plans to follow her mother’s lead and pursue a career as a model.

“She is doing double duty right at the moment, doing all that,” Klum stated. “Next week, we will fly to Milan for Milan Fashion Week. She works there so I’m excited for the opportunity to see her there. It’s fun. “

Klum reunited recently with her daughter in Manhattan, as they attended the Daily Front Row Awards during New York Fashion Week. Simon Cowell,

“AGT judge, pointed out that he had correctly predicted that the Mayyas would win this competition.

” It was like a wave. He spoke to Fox News Digital, expressing his amazement at the sheer talent, joy, and amazement.

“Something we’ve never seen before. He said that everyone who witnessed this was “gobsmacked.”

” I heard how much work they had to do,” Cowell said. “There are so many people within the group. “

Cowell called the group’s performance at finals night “breaktakingly great”.

During the semi-finals last week, “AGT” judge Howie Mandel had proclaimed that the Mayyas were the best act he had ever seen in all his years on the show. He said that he wasn’t the only one who thought so. “I believe America got it right, and I’m so happy that they won. “

I’m so happy that the world seems to be so excited about what I’m excited about. “

He said, “And when i say the world, you can look at the numbers digitally on YouTube, Facebook, and wherever else, there are hundreds to hundreds of millions clicks. “

“Everybody wants to watch them and now people have an opportunity to go to Vegas, to the Luxor and see them live. The price of admission alone is worth it, but you can also see the entire ‘AGT Live” show. “


“The Mayyas absolutely deserve this,” “AGT” host Terry Crews said during his post-show interview with Fox News Digital.

” They changed the way we dance forever,” he said. It’s a completely new style. People will be copying this, I believe. They will be trying to imitate the Mayyas’ act, but you need to visit Vegas now to see them forever. “

Crews went on to praise the group for persevering through the adverse conditions that they faced in their home country while working on their act. They have overcome such hardships. He explained that there were times when they couldn’t rehearse for an entire hour because they only had one hour of electricity per day.

“People aren’t even aware of all the things they went through in Lebanon. To come here, to become the “AGT Champion” and have a home in Vegas, where they can make this act even better. It’s brilliant. “


Crews said that he believed that the group’s act was the “perfect theme” for the Luxor Hotel in Las Vegas, which is home to the “America’s Got Talent Las Vegas LIVE” show. He said, “It’s going be so romantic, beautiful and stupendous.”

” I can’t wait for my wife to come. “
