'America's Got Talent' Crowns Million-Dollar Winner

Entertainment Tonight, Wednesday, September 15, 2010, 9:59pm (PDT)

Which of the four finalists on "America's Got Talent" won the competition and the $1-million grand prize Wednesday night?

Fedora-sportin' singer Michael Grimm was crowned the new "AGT" champ. He triumphed over androgynous crooner Prince Poppycock, 10-year-old singing prodigy Jackie Evancho, and Fighting Gravity, a black-light illusion dance group.

In addition to scoring his cool mil, Grimm gets to headline "AGT"'s national tour.

Leading up to the big announcement, the finalists each performed a duet with one of their heroes. Grimm sang with Jewel, Poppycock crooned alongside Donna Summer, Fighting Gravity teamed up with Lionel Richie, and Evancho went operatic with Sarah Brightman.

"Is this real?" asked Grimm, after sharing an embrace with runner-up Evancho.

The finale also featured special performances by Usher, David Copperfield and the Goo Goo Dolls.
