(NBC) – It’s finale night tonight for NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” Ten acts will perform with one last chance to earn viewers’ votes in hopes of winning the million-dollar prize and a show in Las Vegas.
It seems effortless for nine-year-old Victory Brinker, but it’s not.
“I have to work hard. And I’m glad I worked hard,” said Brinker.
The same goes for the dazzling World Taekwondo Demonstration team.
“It’s every day, 8 hours of training, it’s repeat, repeat, repeat,” said a team member.
Repetition in his backyard helped Aidan Bryant shine in the semis.
“That was my biggest performance I’ve ever done. It’s crazy,” said Bryant.
Fellow Virginian Dustin Tavella has followed a magical path to tonight’s final.
And it almost seems like magic when Lea Kyle does her quick change.
“I never performed on a big stage like this,” said Kyle.
Neither has the Northwell Health Choir, they’re normally tending to patients.
“Even though we say we’re just nurses, I think our music is top-notch,” said a member of the choir.
Brooke Simpson’s hoping she can take her music next level.
“I can’t just sing a song, I have to create a moment,” said Simpson.
Jimmie Herrod’s had several of those this season, he needs just one more.
“It’s hard to follow so many amazing people,” said Herrod.
That includes Gina Brillon, she’s made laughs pay off.
“This, to me, makes the list of the most epic thing I’ve ever done,” Brillon said.
Josh Blue’s also scored with laughs and he’s primed for tonight.
“It’s gonna be a fun one,” said Blue.
A million dollars lies in wait.
The season finale of “America’s Got Talent” starts tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC4 and wraps up tomorrow night at 9 p.m.
