‘America’s Got Talent’ names winner (Video)

“America’s Got Talent” ended Wednesday, with four very different finalists left vying for the big prize: $1 million and their own show in Las Vegas.

From the hundreds of hopefuls, two dance groups, Team iLuminate and Silhouettes, teen band PopLyfe and solo crooner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. remained.

So which act did America reward?

Murphy was named the winner, instantly going from car washer to Las Vegas headliner. The West Virginia singer, who favored Frank Sinatra tunes throughout the season, performed “You’re All I Need to Get By” with Patti LaBelle.

Watch Murphy put his car washing days behind him as he’s crowned the winner.

Watch iLuminate perform.

Watch Murphy sing “My Way.”
