“America’s Got Talent” 2019 Winner Predictions
Though each of the remaining contestants are quite talented, there can only be one winner. Read on below for our winner predictions and spoilers on who we think are contenders for the top 5 spots.
When it comes to the top 5, our votes are for Kodi Lee, V.Unbeatable, Tyler Butler-Figueroa, Emanne Beasha, and Detroit Youth Choir. Ryan Niemiller could also possibly get in there somehow since fans recently saved him with the Dunkin’ Save live votes. So, he may have America on his side.
As for who could be the winner this season, Kodi Lee is our top prediction, but Emanne Beasha and V.Unbeatable each have a solid chance. Kodi Lee has been a consistent fan-favorite throughout the season and has an amazing backstory, as well as the talent. During the quarterfinals, judge Simon Cowell told Beasha, “You’re on a different planet from everyone else,” telling her that she was in a much higher league than the other acts on the show, so she definitely has a good shot. Meanwhile, Parade has reported that the odds are in Lee’s favor. Lee is blind and autistic and has managed to deliver amazing performances, evoking emotion from the judges, as well as audience members, throughout season 14, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Tonight’s finals air on the NBC network, from 8 – 10 p.m. ET/PT and 7 – 9 p.m. CT. And, the season 14 finale show will air tomorrow night, on September 18, 2019, from 8 – 10:01 p.m. ET/PT and 7 – 9 p.m. CT.
AGT: The Champions has been renewed for season 2, so America’s Got Talent fans may only have to wait until the winter to get their AGT fix.
