“America’s Got Talent” has had an even dozen winners over the years. Each of these acts earned bragging rights for getting the most votes from America that summer but how many of them have stayed in the public eye? In the photo gallery above, we update you on all the winners listed below.
Appropriately enough season 12 was won by a 12 year-old: ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer. This Oklahoma native was the third ventriloquist to win “AGT” following Terry Fator (season 2) and Paul Zerdin (season 10).
Farmer was also the third child star to take the title, following season 1 champ singer Bianca Ryan, who at age 11 is the youngest-ever, and season 11 winner Grace VanderWaal, a 12-year-old singer-songwriter/ukeleleist. They are the only three females to be crowned “America’s Got Talent” champion.
Beginning in season 3, four men in a row won for raising their voice in song: Neal E. Boyd, Kevin Skinner, Michael Grimm and Landau Eugene Murphy Jr.
This quartet of male singers was followed by three variety acts: father-son dog duo Olate Dogs season 7), modern dancer Kenichi Ebina (season 8) and magician Mat Franco (season 9).
