I think everyone may have been swamped with the finale of AGT, Big Brother, and the start of Survivor all in one night. At least I was!

I am glad Kinichi won it. He is very creative, and while his last original performance didn't do it for me, the previous ones were fantastic.

I never got Taylor. Comedy is subjective and I just didn't think his fake giggle and Woody Allen-like delivery was funny.

I am happy with the final 2 placement. Kinichi seems more like a Vegas show to me so I am glad he won.

I am glad that Collins was no higher than 5th.

I figured Kenichi to win (like pretty much everybody else), but the rest of the final order threw me. I never would have placed Taylor Williamson above either Collins Key or Cami Bradley (sixth? really? was it the way she did "I Want to Hold Your Hand"?), much less in second (well, at least until I heard the audience reactions to each name just before they announced third place).

I wonder if twitter blew up with people complaining that an Arab like Kenichi shouldn't have been allowed to win AGT so close to 9/11.

It's funny how they never mentioned any of that in his back story. They made it seem like he flew to America for the first time and auditioned for AGT in order to finally pursue his lifelong dream of being a dancer. In reality, the guy has already had huge success. It reminds me of Donovan and Rebecca from last year. Those guys had competed on talent shows all over the world, but you'd never know it from watching AGT. The show always tried to make it seem like they discovered the act. I also think it's funny how they call the show "America's Got Talent", when so many of the acts aren't from America.

This, of course, doesn't take away from the fact that Kenichi absolutely deserved to win last night. In fact, he's the only act in the final six that I can say this about. IMHO, the biggest travesty of the season was Catapult not making it into the finals. I still think Kenichi is more entertaining, but they were darn impressive in their own right.

I was getting worried as Jimmy Rose kept getting through.....I still can't believe he was in the finals.

I've enjoyed Kollins Key but my suggestion to him would be to not make his tricks SO specific. When you pick 3 people from random and totally call their hashtag, gender, and clothing....it just totally takes me out of the "wonder" of magic and immediately into how its just a trick...if that makes any sense. It is just so specific that it takes out the mystery

My suggestion to Collins Key would be that if you are going to have audience participants in the trick who are going to need to read things, to make sure that he chooses people who can actually see well enough to read.

This year I am happy with the results, though I don't think Jimmy Rose should have gotten to the finals over Catapult. At least someone with an original talent won it this year, and not something we've all seen a million times.

Collins Key is 17. That kid is going to make it big someday.
I also think Taylor Williamson is going to find his way onto a network comedy very soon.

This was a really good year for talent on the show.

I agree and think that even IF an 11 year old won, what kind of show could they have in Vegas?

I can deal with the results but id rather have seen Camie Bradley win.. I thought she was consistently fantastic but so was Kenechi... he's just won so much stuff, she should have won.

And it should be staged in a school auditorium ... with no cameras (except for their parents with their smartphone cameras).

He didn't know which one was Hoda and which was Kathy-Lee! He called out for Kathy but was looking at Hoda!

P.S. Cami was robbed by placing sixth! I hope she gets a good career out of this exposure.

The first year's winner was 13 at the time. I don't believe a Vegas show was part of the prize at that time though.

I'm relieved to not have to endure more of Collins Key's open mouth guffaw and phony suprised wild-eyed wonderment. He is as phony as his magic.

Get off my TV.

Fortunately for those of us who have heard Jackie Evancho sing, this isn't happening.

However, they do have to differentiate between the "good" and "good enough to win" acts for the younger ones.

According to this press release, the tour will include:
Kenichi Ebina
Taylor Williamson
Collins Key
Jimmy Rose
Cami Bradley
KriStef Brothers
Tone The Chiefrocca (“B-Double-O-T-Y”)

Presumably, other acts are included, and they may be swapped in and out between tour stops; I did a search on both York, PA online newspapers, but neither appears to have any stories about who performed there.

There was an article about Collins Key but it was more about his visiting a York-area high school the day after the concert.
