‘America’s Got Talent’ Crowns Season 17 Winner
After months of cheers and tears, and some well-founded fears from contestants, America’s Got Talent now has a new champion.
NBC’s talent quest reached its climax Wednesday night (Sept. 14), after a round of final, live performances.
After the votes were tallied, there was only one winner: Mayyas.
The Lebanese all female alternative dance group, created by Nadim Cherfan, is awarded the $1 million prize and the chance to headline a residency at Luxor Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas.
The dancers won the final group, which included saxophonist Avery Dixon, country trio Chapel Hart, teen Polish singer Sara James, AI act Metaphysic, and Australian pole dancer Kristy Sellerars, who finished as runner up.
The finale was an all-star affair that began with a performance by Black Eyed Peas and featured some big-name collaborators.
Among them, Drake Milligan, a country singer, performed on “Last Night Lonely” with Jon Pardi; Chapel Hart joined Darius Rucker for “Something to Talk About”, Dixon and Trombone shorty rocked an instrumental piece, and the final two acts, Sellars & Mayyas, teamed up for a spellbinding performance.
Mayyas performed their final performance Tuesday night, before America voted. They captivated everyone in the room and those watching back at home with an exotic and flawless performance.
Earlier in the season Mayyas won Sofia Vergara’s “Golden Buzzer .”
” “There are no words to describe to you what was happening over here,” Modern Family star, who saw the group perform after first seeing them perform, said that it was “the most beautiful and creative dancing I have ever seen .”
Vergara has been a fan for a lifetime. “I’m so proud Mayyas. She tweeted, “You deserve this,” after the finale.
