“America’s Got Talent: The Champions” brought together 50 competitors from past seasons and editions around the world.
But in the end, the two competitors vying for the title were of recent and familiar vintage: the 2017 “AGT” champ, ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer, and last summer’s winner, sleight-of-hand artist Shin Lim.
After the field of 12 finalists was winnowed during the last 20 minutes of Monday’s two-hour, noncompetition finale, Lim claimed the trophy and the $25,000 winner’s prize.
“It was awesome and such a fun run,” Lim tells USA TODAY of his victory, which was punctuated by a fall to the ground when host Terry Crews announced his name.
Crews, who had an up-close spot for Lim’s winning routine in last week’s show, marvels at his skill.
