The Best ‘AGT’ Singers Of The Decade

Courtney Hadwin

This young singer was 13 years old when she auditioned for Season 13 of AGT.

Courtney made it to the Top 10, and later returned for Champions.


Brian Justin Crum

This singer from Season 11 of AGT captured the judges’ attention with his powerhouse audition to Queen’s “Somebody to Love.” He went on to perform such classics as “Creep” by Radiohead” and “Man in the Mirror” by Michael Jackson. Brian finished the season in fourth place, and returned earlier this year for Champions, making it to the finals.

Grace VanderWaal

Who could forget this ukulele-playing singer from Season 11? Grace was 12 years old when she auditioned with an original song called “I Don’t Know My Name.” Simon Cowell called her the next Taylor Swift, and she went on to win the entire competition with her unique voice and songwriting skills. Now 15, Grace has released a studio album and two EPs.


Angelica Hale

Angelica was just 9 years old when she auditioned for AGT with a cover of Andra Day’s “Rise Up.” In the Judge Cuts round, she sang Alicia Keys’ “Girl on Fire” and received the Golden Buzzer from guest judge Chris Hardwick. Angelica finished Season 12 in second place, and returned for Champions, receiving another Golden Buzzer and making it to the finals.

Kodi Lee

Season 14 winner Kodi Lee might be the most memorable AGT singer of the decade. The musician, who is blind and autistic, wowed the judges with his beautiful voice and made a splash on social media. His audition to Leon Russell’s “A Song For You” earned the Golden Buzzer from Gabrielle Union. He went on to win the million-dollar prize and a headlining show in Vegas.
