America’s Got Talent: All-Stars aired its finale episode on Monday night, as teen aerialist Aidan Bryant was named the winner. Since the show was pre-recorded, the final result was decided by a group of Superfans. A lot of at-home viewers were disappointed by the outcome.


AGT: All-Stars Fans Are Disappointed with the Results

After Monday’s finale, plenty of fans made their opinions known on social media. A lot of Reddit users were happy to see Bryant take home the win after coming in second place in Season 16. However, there were also plenty of comments about how the rest of the Top 5 turned out.

The All-Stars runner-up was saxophonist Avery Dixon, and the rest of the Top 5 consisted of magician Aidan McCann, ventriloquist Ana-Maria Mărgean, and dance group Light Balance Kids. That means impressive acts such as Kodi Lee and Tom Ball were left out of the Top 5.

As one Reddit user put it, “How the HELL did the kid magician make it over Tom and Kodi?” Another wrote, “Kodi out of the top 5, Light Balance only ending in three, and Avery in the top two??? WHO voted on this? How?”


Another fan wrote, “Only things the ‘superfans’ (I don’t even think they are real at this point) got right is picked deserved winner.” Someone else wondered simply, “Were the super fans watching the same acts we did?”

Not Everyone Was Happy with the Winner

Although fans on Reddit seemed to mostly be disappointed by the Top 5 in general, plenty of fans on Twitter were upset that Aidan Bryant was named the winner. Responses to AGT‘s tweet announcing the result include quite a few complaints.


“Definitely wasn’t the best act. Maybe 4th or 5th place. Terrible season ending,” wrote one fan. As usual, there were also plenty of accusations that the show is “rigged,” and complaints about the Superfans.

Other users shared which act they thought was more deserving of the win. Kodi Lee, Light Balance Kids, and Tom Ball seemed to be popular choices.

I don’t feel the final winner was the correct one. Who are the ‘Super Fans’ and who selected them.

I agree 100% with the other people who asked if the “superfans” were watching the same final performances on February 20 that the rest of us were! What were these peoples” qualifications to be “superfans?” Obviously, the reason so many people think the choices for the final five were rigged (that, or the “superfans” weren’t able to identify REAL talent when they saw it), is because of Tom Ball and Kodi Lee, who were BY FAR the greatest talents to appear on AGT, being left our of the top five. That is the greatest travesty I have ever witnessed.. It… Read more »

I agree the super fans should go. Let the popular vote decide the winner Do it like the regular season open the voting until 7am the next day too get a true vote. Also I guess I will be the only one to admit this Aidan Was my favorite and I pulling for him to win. I also think in the long run 10 to 15 years from now the Ana-Maria the vantrilquist will be a bigger star than the rest of the finalists

Total disappointment Avery was better than the winner other acts also more deserving than what they placed. I agree competition probably rigged.

Super fans are supposed to be from all 50 states but must live in the Los Angeles area.

I’m a huge fan of AGT. I was so disappointed with the top 5 finalist. Makes me wonder if it’s rigged or not. Where are the super fans selected from? It should be live voting that closes especially if it’s something like all stars competing to be the best. So angry definitely makes me second guess..

The winner is a joke. Kodi Lee was the best by a HUGE margin!

I’m not sure I will watch AGT again. I also think it may have been rigged just like several seasons ago on Dancing with the Stars which I haven’t watched since. The double act of Cody and Light Balance Kids hit it out of the park by a long shot. He didn’t even make the top 5 shameful.

Are u kidding me? What a jjoke! From a great sequence of talent over the weeks leading up to the finale, my wife and I could not believe the final winner!! Who are these superfans? I doubt they even exist! Although the final winner certainly has talent, in no way was he more talented then Cody, Tom or that tremendous talent actually from Romania!! No way! Get back to a fair assessment by letting the AGT viewers vote! Period! Otherwise people won’t watch

May I ask why my comments were rejected? My comments were not in the least abusive. I stated my thoughts and gave reasons why I feel this way. I have been an avid AGT fan for years;

Aidan Bryant was the WORST POSSIBLE CHOICE out of the final five?! In fact, elastic spine shoudn’t have even been one of the top 5! In my wildest hallucinations I can’t imagine anyone in Vegas paying good money to see some kid hanging from the ceiling and flying around on bed sheets for an hour. That’s positively insane! But then so were all of the so called “Superfans” who voted for that little goober to be the winner. Avery Dixon should have been the winner!! I would pay plenty to see and listen to him for an hour or more!… Read more »

Very disappointed in winner chosen. Avery is far more talented and will be star entertainer someday. A Vegas show of Aidan is not worth going to.
