‘AGT’ Finale Prediction: Who Will Win Season 18?
Reading Time: 2 minutes
America’s Got Talent Season 18 is about to come to a close with this week’s two-part finale. The Top 11 finalists will perform on Tuesday night, and a winner will be announced during Wednesday’s results show. Who will earn America’s vote?
AGT Season Finale to Feature 11 Finalists
Fifty-five acts made it to the live shows this season, and that number has now been narrowed down to 11 finalists. Viewers voted two acts per week into the Finals, and they also chose dance group Avantgardey as this season’s wildcard act.
This season’s finalists also include five Golden Buzzer acts — Lavender Darcangelo, Murmuration, Mzansi Youth Choir, Putri Ariani, and Chibi Unity. The Top 11 is rounded out by Adrian Stoica & Hurricane, Ahren Belisle, Anna DeGuzman, 82nd Airborne Division Chorus, and Ramadhani Brothers.
The Season 18 finalists include three dance groups, two solo singers, two singing groups, a dog act, a comedian, a magician, and an acrobatic duo. Last season, dance group the Mayyas won the show. Will another type of act take the top spot this time around?
Who Will Be Named the Season 18 Winner?
This season’s finale will feature some seriously talented acts, and it’s nice to see some variety among the finalists. However, only one can be named the winner. I think that act will be 17-year-old Indonesian singer Putri Ariani.
This season is interesting, because the two solo singers who made it to the finale are both blind. Lavender Darcangelo has also clearly won over America’s hearts, but I believe viewers will choose Putri as the winner. Just look at how many views she has on YouTube for her performances.
Putri Ariani’s audition has far and away the most views of any performance this season, with 53 million at the time of this writing. Her performance in the live shows also earned over 7 million views on YouTube. The judges were blown away by her haunting rendition of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” by U2.
Who do you think will be named the Season 18 winner? Let us know in the comments below, and tune in to the AGT finale on Tuesday and Wednesday night at 9/8c on NBC.
