Their coordinated dances appear even more special under the bright lights of the AGT stage. Murmuration really uses the theatre setting to heighten the atmosphere of their act.

5. Adrian Stoica & Hurricane

Adrian brings drama and danger by infusing dance moves and near impossible tricks into his magic performances. Along with his furry partner Hurricane, they‘ve kept audiences on the edge of their seats with acts like dancing blindfolded on cylinders at 20 feet high!

Fun Fact: Adrian and Hurricane hold two Guinness World Records together as a magical duo!

6. Lavender Darcangelo

Can you believe Lavender is only 9 years old? This mini diva packs some seriously powerful pipes! Lavender blows people away every time she opens her mouth to sing classic hits from Aretha Franklin or Alicia Keys. She may be small, but her huge voice is absolutely mesmerizing.

Fun Fact: Lavender taught herself to sing by watching YouTube videos of Christina Aguilera!

With all this exceptional talent, the AGT 2023 finale is guaranteed to be a spectacular showdown!

Voting is Open! Who Will You Vote For?

Now here comes the important part, my friend. The futures of our talented finalists are in YOUR hands! Your votes will decide who will take home the $1 million prize and title of the next AGT champion.

Voting opens at the start of each live show on NBC and closes 12 hours later. There are two ways you can vote:

1. AGT App

Just download the free America‘s Got Talent App on your phone or tablet and you‘ll be able to vote up to 10 times for each act. The app tallies votes in real-time so you can see how your favorites are doing.


You can head to the official AGT voting page and vote up to 10 times per act using your email address and postal code. Voting online is quick and easy to do right from your laptop.

Remember, voting closes 12 hours after the live show finishes airing, so be sure cast those votes during that window!

An important note is that the TV broadcast is tape-delayed on the West Coast. So folks in the Pacific and Mountain time zones must wait 3 hours after the show airs in their local time to start voting online or via the app.

AGT has can attract up to 12 million viewers who cast around 20 million votes per episode. So every single vote matters in this competition! I‘ll definitely be voting tons for my favorite acts after the finale performance show. Who are you leaning towards as your top pick?

Standout Performances Leading up to the Finale

We‘ve witnessed some absolutely breathtaking performances this season that led these spectacular six to qualify for the finals. Let me remind you of a few standouts:

Mzansi Youth Choir – Their cover of "The Circle of Life" from The Lion King gave me goosebumps. The solos were stunning and their harmonies were sheer perfection. Their energy and showmanship fill up the entire stage.

Lavender Darcangelo – During the semis, Lavender sang "I Will Always Love You" in honor of the victims of the Uvalde shooting. Her mature and emotional delivery brought the judges and audience to tears. At just 9 years old, her talent is truly beyond her years.

Adrian Stoica and Hurricane – Their death-defying balancing act 20 feet up on thin cylinders sent anxiety through the roof! Adrian danced and juggled machetes while blindfolded as Hurricane jumped through hoops of fire nearby. How they pulled it off, I‘ll never know!

There‘s no question these contestants have earned their place among the top 6 after giving us such iconic moments all season long!

What Does the Decks for the Epic Finale Show?

My friend, the AGT finale is truly a TV event like no other. The production pulls out all the stops to create an incredible spectacle – I‘m talking next level staging, lighting, pyrotechnics and celebrity cameos! Here‘s a little taste of what we can expect during the 2-hour telecast:

Big Name Guest Performers – The finale always promises surprises by A-list musicians. In previous years, we‘ve seen stars like Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood, and Ne-Yo take the stage. Who will wow the crowds this year?

Elaborate Staging and Effects – No expense is spared to transform the theatre into an electrifying setup for finale. Expect dazzling lasers, LED screens, smoke effects and towering set pieces to heighten the performances even more.

Confetti Cannons and Celebrations – Once a winner is crowned, the theatre will erupt in a tsunami of confetti and cheers! We‘re talking confetti streaming from the ceiling, giant cannons, and enough glitter to last until next season. I hope you like confetti ­čÖé

Red Carpet and Backstage Access – Before and after the show, we get fun behind-the-scenes footage of the contestants arriving on the red carpet, celebrating backstage, and reactions from the winner.

The AGT 2023 finale promises to be bigger, louder and more dramatic than ever. I‘m already counting down the days until the big show!

Who Will Win America‘s Vote This Year?

Honestly, the talent has been SO incredible this year that it‘s impossible to predict who will take the crown for AGT 2023.

Will it be the angelic and uplifting Mzansi Youth Choir? Or will young vocal powerhouse Lavender pull off an upset? Maybe the hilarious Ahren will win over voters with his witty comedy.

My friend, it really comes down to YOU and your votes. The finalists have worked incredibly hard and proven they deserve to win. So I encourage you to vote for whichever performer inspires and moves you the most.

The winner will walk away with a life-changing $1 million prize and the coveted title of America‘s Got Talent Champion! But regardless of who wins, each finalist has a bright future and long career in entertainment ahead of them.
