The winner of America’s Got Talent: All-Stars has been revealed during the February 27 season finale of the NBC talent competition.
At the start of the year, the show, also known as AGT: All-Stars, began, bringing back 60 acts from Got Talent franchises around the world to compete for the ultimate All-Star title.

The Got Talent winners, finalists, fan favorites and viral sensations on the cast included America’s Got Talent winners Brandon Leake, Terry Fator, Dustin Tavella, and Kodi Lee. There was Canada’s Got Talent 2022 winner Jeanick Fournier, as well as Britain’s Got Talent 2022 winner Axel Blake.
Each week, 10 acts, including singers, dancers, ventriloquists, comedians, aerialists and magicians, performed for judges Heidi Klum, Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel, as well as host Terry Crews.
The 60 acts were whittled down to just 11 finalists, determined by the “superfans” and the Golden Buzzers, who all took to the stage to perform for one final time last week.
Then, during Monday night’s two-hour star-studded finale, the superfans in the AGT: All-Stars audience voted once again, this time to choose the ultimate winner.
The series was filmed back in the summer of 2022, so there was no public vote.
