After Tuesday night’s finals performance show, America’s Got Talent received the most votes in its history. 52 million people voted for who would win the popular talent competition show. That, plus the consistent ratings wins, means AGT is going to be around for a while.
Tyra Banks announced last night ahead of the eliminations that 52 million people voted for for who would be the AGT champ. To put that into perspective, that is as many people as voted Donald Trump into office and almost as many as voted for Hillary Clinton. I’m not getting political, I’m just saying that AGT is as popular as voting on who will be the leader of the free world. Some people would say that this is crazy. Not me. Can political candidates sing with puppets or do whatever it is that Light Balance does? I don’t think so.
This has been America’s Got Talent‘s most popular season ever. After Darci Lynne Farmer won last night’s grand prize it made international headlines. Simon Cowell must be very pleased with himself.
