"America's Got Talent" crowns new champion

BOSS Simon Cowell

GETTY BOSS Simon Cowell plans to sign up teen singer Courtney Hadwin to his music label Syco

The competition was won by Canadian-American magician Shin Lim.

By the end of the night, many fans were left wondering if America had made the right choice after all.

Who would you have voted for in the America's Got Talent season finale?

The NBC reality show is set to announce the season 13 victor Wednesday after a two-hour celebration of the talented performers who have come to the end of the road, but kicking things off from the start was one of America's most iconic bands of all time.

The final happened over two nights, with Courtney receiving a standing ovation for her version of a Tina Turner song called River Deep, Mountain High.

British singer Courtney Hadwin, whose covers of classic rock songs have riled up the judges week after week, seemed a popular choice to take home the crown on Wednesday. During his final performance, he surprised viewers, including host Tyra Banks, with his unbelievable card tricks. He turned in another mind-blower the previous night, while revealing how carpal tunnel syndrome dashed his piano-playing hopes and turned him to magic.

Xiaomi has ridiculed the price of the iPhone
The three new phones unveiled at Apple's big event on Wednesday sport displays ranging from 5.8 inches to 6.5 inches in size. And then there's the iPhone XR - a "budget" version of the iPhone XS, similar to the iPhone 5C and iPhone SE before it.

He has impressive talent, perseverance and the ability to offer something new with every performance.

The judges on America's Got Talent were comedian and actor Howie Mandel, singer Mel B, model Heidi Klum and TV titan Simon Cowell.

Tyra then told her: "You are wonderful".

He wins US$1 million (S$1.37 million) and a three-night residency in Las Vegas.

However, he also praised Shin for his incredible finale performance.

Tennessee native Michael Ketterer came in fifth place on America's Got Talent. We think Michael Ketterer, Glennis Grace and Brian King Joseph are also in contention for third place, but Zurcaroh will clinch it.
