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!
