Magician Shin Lim wins America’s Got Talent with jaw-dropping card tricks

Magician Shin Lim wins America’s Got Talent with jaw-dropping card tricks

Michael Ketterer took to the stage during America's Got Talent's two-hour season 13 finale on Wednesday, and belted out a lovely, passionate original single penned by none other than country music icon, Garth Brooks. Michael went on to be a fan favorite week after week, all the way until the finals.

Plus, Michael already has a big gig coming up: Garth Brooks invited him to perform at his concert at the University of Notre Dame on October 20!

"Sure ain't a bad way to leave the Dolby [Theater], singing a song written by Garth Brooks", Ketterer said with a stunned and thankful laugh. Unfortunately, his finale performance just wasn't enough to declare him the victor, though, and the crowd was shocked when Tyra Banks announced his fifth place finish during the September 19 finale. Brooks also invited Ketterer to sing the song at a sold out show at Notre Dame. Michael sang the song on the September 19 episode of AGT, but it was too late, as the votes were already in. "It was like... WHAT!?"

How do you feel about the results?

Simon added: "I always say the most important part of being a star is being remembered and that's what you do". "I made no bones about that!" he laughed. The finale performance "was my way of growing as a magician, and I think I'm going to follow that path of getting bigger and having a full show". Banks said, before the customary competition show pregnant pause.

During the contest, she also performed songs including James Brown's Papa's Got A Brand New Bag and Otis Redding's Hard To Handle, leading Howie Mandel to compare her to a young Janis Joplin. It was way better than anything else that we had seen.
