Mississippi-born soul singer Michael Grimm was recently crowned the winner of the fifth season's competition. The win moved the humble soul singer to tears as he took home the show's $1 million prize. He is currently headlining a nationwide America's Got Talent tour, which includes a stop on the Las Vegas Strip, and has just signed a record deal with Epic records.

Season four winner, Kevin Skinner, released his debut album, "Long Ride," last September. One of last season's finalists, Recycled Percussion, are currently headlining their own show at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas and Barbara Padilla, last season's runner-up, is working on albums in Spanish and Italian.

Season two winner, Terry Fator, a ventriloquist from Dallas, Texas, achieved his lifelong dream when he was crowned the second season champion. After the win he went on to sign a five-year $100 hundred million-dollar deal to headline at The Mirage in Las Vegas. Beginning February 2009, he will perform 48 weeks a year, 5 nights a week in The Terry Fator Theatre (currently the Danny Gans Theatre).

"America's Got Talent," hosted by Nick Cannon, stars Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Piers Morgan as the panel of celebrity judges. The series is a true celebration of the American spirit, featuring a colorful array of aspiring stars, including singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, jugglers, magicians and ventriloquists, all vying for their chance to strut and perform on stage hoping to win America's hearts - and the $1 million prize.

"America's Got Talent" is produced by Fremantle Media North America and Simon Cowell's SYCO Television. Simon Cowell, Cecile Frot-Coutaz ("American Idol"), Jason Raff and Ken Warwick are executive producers.
