For the fourth time, a singer wins "America's Got Talent". Soul crooner Michael Grimm beat 10-year-old Jackie Evancho, who amazed America with her much matured soprano voice, in the September 15 finale. "Is this really happening," Grimm said in disbelief. "Is this real?"

As for Jackie, she handled it like a grown up. "This experience has been amazing," she said, without showing any sign of disappointment. "I have loved every single moment that I've been doing it, and I just really hope that I'll be able to sing for you guys again." Earlier that day she got to sing with Sarah Brightman who described Jackie as "a beautiful, wonderful little girl with a wonderful voice" and a big future.

The final dismissed opera singer Prince Poppycock first. "You are a star and you will be star," judge Piers Morgan said upon his exit. Blacklight performers Fighting Gravity were next to be eliminated and Sharon Osbourne lifted their spirit by saying she'd want a front row in their shows.

Guests coming to the final night were Cirque du Soleil's LOVE, Lionel Richie, David Copperfield and Usher.

Michael won because he had the most votes - and, obviously, the most fans. Fans - what every successful entertainer MUST have!

I'm happy with the outcome even tho I only voted for Jackie. She will be a sensation anyway and Sarah Brightman was right to advise her to save her voice. Michael G. has a fabulous from rags to riches story and I'm happy he'll be able to give back to his grandparents.

the public finally selected the right candidate. Michael Grimm deserved to win even though Jackie is and will become a great talent.
