Landau Wins AGT

Woo!

We're totally happy with this season's winner, though, we would like to have seen Team iLuminate win it too!

Jazz singer Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr., who went from washing cars and living on the street to performing in front of millions, won the competition. He narrowly beat out Silhouettes, which had the show's youngest contestant to date. The group wowed judges all season long by posing behind a screen and making shapes with their bodies that matched famous photographs that were typically American-themed.

As the crowd screamed, the West Virginia native put his hands over his face and was rushed by members of the second-place act, the dance group Silhouettes.

All the acts were super cool, but Landau's voice is just incredible. And we're happy to see that now he can support his family, and hopefully more amazing things will come from this for him!

Congrats, Lanadu! And for the rest of you, click the jump to see his stellar performance with the incomparable Miz Patti LaBelle!

    Thanks for putting this behind a cut or giving a spoiler alert, douche.



  2. 2

    Well, I guess I will just delete that program from my DVR. Thanks!



  3. 3

    Would anyone really pay to see him? be honest.



  4. 4

    Damn right I would pay to see him. When he sang Paul Anka's song MY WAY, he out-Franked Frank. He can sing soul too……..I love him…..

    Comments OFF

    Another singer? Shocker! i'm not even going to bother watching next year, singers win every time, go on the talent shows geared towards singing, jesus.



  7. 7

    Good for him but has anyone other than a singer ever won that show?



  8. 8

    u know what i hate about this show ?
    that the winner is always a singer !!!!

    50 % of auditions are singers

    theres amercian idol for that
    now theres the x factor for that
    i watch the talant show so i wont have to watch singing
    yet they are there too even thoe lets face it right now —-> singing is NOT a talant anymore, anyone can sing easily and anyone can learn and fix their vocals.

    its putting a show that people suck at.

    COMPLETELY robbed of my time. Sure he can belt it out like Sinatra, but how original is that? YAWN. I wouldn't pay for that in Vegas. The Iluminate team and the dancer group were by far the most amazing acts. I feel robbed of my precious time. I'm sending Pierce and invoice.

    He voice is amazing and he is such a humble man. I was thrilled that he won!



  11. 11

    he won cuz hes black. typical. hey youth we all know this is what ur gonna try to be when u grow up cuz it looks so easy..so instead of going to school to get a real career ur gonna sing or rap hoping someone sees u and signs u. PATHETIC!



  12. 12

    I thought the winner was announced like… a week ago.



  13. 13

    Dude needs to watch out for the sparks. We don't need another MJ accident.



  14. 14

    Well first let me, like others, thank you for ruining the outcome for me. Second I would like to call bullshit! Like many have said… a singer always wins. YAWWWN. This guy can sing like a crooner, great, but where will that fit in today's music industry? Nowhere. He also has worse stage presence than one of those birds in the early auditions. Boo, America. BOO!

    Re: divo257 – Tell it to Michael Buble who does more than alright. Landau can croon, and he'll get his own songs written for him and then his own CD. People are so sick of the autocrappop that the swing back to jazz, motown, and classics is on a welcome resurgence; and it couldn't come soon enough. Music was my life at one point, and I don't bother to turn on the radio much anymore.



  16. 16

    Any one of the other three finalists would have been a better choice. His is just an average voice. He won't go anywhere.



  17. 17

    Well If you think life is easy even as a singer then you are very immature.Just because he is black…it is the same as saying you put that comment just because you are ignorant…you see…Please girl whatever you do in life, tu put food on the table is honorable as long as you do no harm to nobody but these are stuff you learn on the way.Dont be jealous of people who truly realize their dreams instead of you doing your 9 to 5.

    I love AGT because they don't require a certain look or body type; nor do they have an age limit. Whereas, other well know televised talent shows are clearly looking for a new star that fits into todays current pop culture. Congratulations are in order for Landau E. Murphy, Jr. He represented a genre rarely seen anymore and was victorious. Well done Landau! And to all you haters… get a life.
