Diavolo and Light Balance showed us what they have as the only dance crews remaining in the contest. To take it up a notch, the World of Dance judge, Derek Hough popped out of one Light Balance’s light up suits. We basically live for this collaboration!

Tyra Banks announced who are the Top 5 finalists and we have Mandy Harvey, Sara & Hero, Light Balance, Darci Lynne, and Angelica Hale. One of them would be crowned the million dollar act.
Tyra Banks got right down to business announcing the runners-up. Sara and Hero finished fifth, disappointing but they are the most novel act to make it this far. In the fourth place, to our shock, Mandy Harvey! It’s okay; we’re sure she’ll be releasing an album soon.
In the third place, we have Light Balance. The Ukrainian artists thanked America for bringing them this far, and we’re sure this won’t be the last we see of them. Heck! Las Vegas is definitely knocking on their door right now.
It comes down between two of the youngest contenders standing in the competition. Nine-year-old Angelica Hale with the larger than life voice, or witty and humorous singing-ventriloquist, Darci Lynne Farmer. With a record 52 million votes, a first in all 12 seasons of AGT, Darci Lynne Farmer became the winner of America’s Got Talent 2017. She is now $1 million rich and has a headlining show in Las Vegas.
Congratulations to Darci Lynne Famer and we hope to see her perform at many shows in the future.
