The Mayyas, who earned Sofía Vergara’s Golden Buzzer, beat out the other 10 finalists, including singer Drake Milligan, pole dancer Kristy Sellars, AI group Metaphysic, and country trio Chapel Tha Hart.
The Mayas were named The Next generation after back-to-back weeks of competition week after week. With the grand prize, they’re taking home $1 million and a headlining show at Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Throughout the audition, judge Sofía Vergara pressed her Golden Buzzer.
During an impromptu performance, The Farm performed a mesmerizing dance routine that fellow judge and producer Simon Cowell predicted would change the world.
“The outfits on the contestants were reminiscent of Vegas. The outfits at first felt familiar, but each one was unique and different from other contestant’s.
“I think for me personally, ‘Dancing With The Stars’ is hands-down the most impressive and beautiful act I have seen in my years on this show,” says judge Howie Mandel. “You just can’t find the language to describe it.”
Nadim Cherfan, the founder of the model, was very excited by his acceptance in front of a panel of judges.
On Wednesday, the group delivered another top-notch performance for the finale.
He said that the experience of this week has been unforgettable, from being selected for the show to knowing him and his band as finalists in the ASH Tour finals.
It’s not about the title anymore. Now, it is a bigger message for our people to believe in themselves, give hope to our country which is going into a dark time”
The Black Eyed Peas, also known as AEGT and AGT contestants Light Balance opened the show with an electronic number. Before the judges and host, Terry Crews raved about the final performances of season 17, a dispute that is still going on today.
They had a chance to perform again, and of the top 11 acts, Mayyas was the top act. The magician Nicolas Ribs was in third place, singer Sara James was in fourth, the AI group Metaphysic was in fifth place, saxophonist Avery Dixon was in sixth place, country group Chapel Hart was in seventh place, pole dancer Kristy Sellars came eighth, and ninth-placed were magician Yu Hojin and comedian Mike E. Winfield respectively. And finally, country singer Drake Milligan completed the list of songs.
The former AGT contestant performed magic with Ribs and Hojin while Milligan sang with singer Jon Pardi and Chapel Hart sang with Darius Rucker. Winfield got to participate in a comedy roast of Simon Cowell by Jeff Ross, Tom McMillian, Mr. Pants, and Lace Larrabee.
More than six of the greatest stars in America took time to perform on AGT. Muñoz performed with fellow ventriloquists Kayla, Darci Lynne, and Terry Fator, and Dr. Singha performs a mesmerizing routine with The Mayyas. Finally, Dixon takes the stage with Trombone Shorty and James sings with The Black Eyed Peas. Henry Winkler, who is a Hollywood actor famous for The Fonz also makes an appearance during the finale.
The Top 5 acts were announced in the press release shortly after nightfall. The winners were Milligan, Sellars, Metaphysic, The Mayyas and Chapel Hart.
From there, Chapel Hart finished in fifth, Metaphysic finished in fourth, Milligan finished in third and Sellars finished in second.
