Sinatra crooner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. beat out a field of talented singers, dancers and performers to win season 6 of America’s Got Talent, claiming the competitions $1 million prize along with a Vegas contract.
The singer managed to beat out body-lighted Team iLuminate, the band PopLyfe and shadow dancers Silhouettes. It should be noted that PopLyfe stumbled during their Queen cover medley on Tuesday.
During the finale for season 6 the 36-year-old crooner performed with Patti LaBell, a big jump in his career after appearing on the show straight from his job at a West Virginia car wash.
The other acts also got to perform with known performers, including iLuminate with Cobra Starship, Silhouettes with LeAnn Rimes and PopLyfe who played a tune with Stevie Wonder.
Returning to the show was last season’s runner up Jackie Evancho, the tiny operatic singer who has launched quite the career of her own.
