Those vying for the ultimate title were Shin Lim, a magician who has stunned audiences with his close-up magic; Michael Ketterer, a pediatric mental health nurse who brought Simon Cowell to tears; Zurcaroh, an Austrian aerial dance group who quickly became Tyra Banks' choice for a victor; Duo Transcend, married aerialists who never shied away from a risk; Samuel J. Comroe, a comedian who has embraced his Tourettes Syndrome as part of his act; and Daniel Emmet, an opera singer with a penchant for picking nontraditional songs.

America's Got Talent is coming to an end tonight, wrapping up the 13th season on NBC - but who will be the victor?

British teenager Courtney Hadwin has finished in sixth place in the final of America's Got Talent.

The 14-year-old from Hesleden, had been among the favourites to win the one million dollar prize money but failed to make the top five during last night's final.

Host Tyra Banks told Hadwin she was proud and said she had "made it" for making it to the final 10. They have also proven that they can handle lengthier performances, putting on 90-minute shows in their home country of Austria back in 2014 and 2016. "Simon, I know this might sound satirical but it's not, thank you".

Courtney was in the final pair alongside her fellow singer, Michael Ketterer. "I actually got to talk to Michael, I talked to him on the phone, just to get ideas about, if we did write a song, what in the world would it cover?" he said.

Courtney and her family have been proved right. "You were unbelievable. My prediction is you're going to be the victor".

The music mogul told her: "You were born to be wild - this was wild!" Before Tuesday's performance, she thanked fans on social media, saying she had had "an awesome time". "Whoever wins got the most votes and Shin.he did his best performance [Monday] night".
