With the last ten acts consisting of five Golden Buzzer winners, we were not surprised when judge Simon Cowell referred to America’s Got Talent Season 16 Finale as “the most competitive final ever.”
And even though there was only one winner, we could not look away from the other astonishing performances that bewitched the American public.
Because of this, in this article, we took the liberty to present you with four impressive acts from this year’s AGT finale.
Suffering from cerebral palsy, comedian Josh Blue has faced adversity his entire life. However, he did not relent to his condition and instead made it integral to his stand-up routines.
On America’s Got Talent, he won the hearts of many audience members with his jokes about the many misconceptions that people have about his condition. His humor proved so effective that it propelled him into the show’s finals.
His final act consisted of a stand-up performance with jokes about his arm making decisions on his own, Botox, and cures for cerebral palsy. Even the judges gave him a standing ovation with his undeniable likeability and witty sense of humor.
Curious to see him in action? Check out the video below and gain a better grasp of why Josh proclaims himself as the comedian who puts the “cerebral” in “cerebral palsy.”
Northwell Health Nurse Choir
Praised by audiences for their incredible voices and contributions amid the ongoing pandemic, these Golden Buzzer winners were one of the most impressive acts from the Season 16 Finale.
The group consisted of 18 nurses from Northwell Health (New York’s largest healthcare provider) who used the stage to represent healthcare professionals in the front line of the pandemic.
Throughout the competition, they shared how their love of music became a source of hope during the long working shifts, which kept them away from their families.
Northwell Health Nurse Choir’s final act consisted of singing a rendition of “Stand by You” by Rachel Platten, dressed in matching red scrubs. Their performance perfectly embodied the strength and resilience that makes the nursing field so incredible and left both the audience and judges speechless.
In the video below, you can watch their memorable performance and see for yourself why we decided to include them on this list.
She may not have returned home with the $1 million prizes, but Victory Brinker is a winner by any standard. This nine-year-old opera singer captivated the audience with her angelic vocals and impressive range.
Her America’s Got Talent audition was one of the big highlights of the show’s entire season, so we had to add it to our list. The young artist made history with her first performance by receiving the first-ever Group Golden Buzzer and later finishing as a Top Ten Finalist.
In the video below, you can watch her performance on America’s Got Talent and see why we decided to include it as one of the most impressive acts from NBC’s hit show.
World Taekwondo Demonstration Team
World Taekwondo Demonstration Team was a taekwondo group act whose AGT audition has been viewed nearly 19 million times on YouTube.
After a routine filled with high kicks and flips, the crew received a “golden buzzer” from host Terry Crews, sending them directly to the Quarterfinals.
Their final act started as an action movie-like sequence full of energy with two opposing groups battling each other on the stage. After the head-to-head combat, the troupe finished their performance with the two rival teams laying down arms in mutual agreement.
You can check out their act in the video below and see for yourself why we think they were one of the most impressive entertainers from the AGT Season 16 Finale.
