‘America’s Got Talent’ Crowns Season 17 Winner

The $1 million reward and the possibility to perform a residency at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas was accepted by the Lebanese all-female alternative dance ensemble.

America's Got Talent has a new winner after months of shouts, tears, and, from the contenders, some well-founded worries.

After a round of final, live performances on Wednesday, September 14, NBC's talent competition came to a close.

The $1 million award and the chance to head up a residency at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas go to the Lebanese all-female alternative dance ensemble, created by Lebanese choreographer Nadim Cherfan.

The dancers won the competition after defeating a final group that comprised saxophonist Avery Dixon, the country duo Chapel Hart, and young vocalist Sara James from Poland.

The Black Eyed Peas opened the show's conclusion, which also featured appearances from other well-known artists.

Among them were Chapel Hart and Darius Rucker on "Something to Talk About," while country singer Drake Milligan collaborated with Jon Pardi on "Last Night Lonely."

Trombone Shorty and Dixon rocked an instrumental piece, and the season's last two performers, Sellars and Mayyas, collaborated for a mesmerising performance.
