'America's Got Talent' Crowns a New Champion ! Lebanese Dance Troupe The Mays Win Season 17
The Mayas, who earned Sofia Vergara's Golden Buzzer, beat the other 10 finalists, including singer Drake Milligan, pole dancer Christy Sellers, AI group Metaphysic and country trio Chapel Heart.
After weeks of competition, The Mays were named the champion of the season 17 competition series.
Along with the grand prize, the Lebanese female dance troupe took home a $1 million prize and a major show at the Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
Mayayan first caught America's attention during her show-stopping audition, which prompted judge Sofia Vergara to press her golden buzzer.
During the live show, the group gave another hypnotic dance routine that fellow judge and executive producer Simon Cowell predicted would "change the world."
"They're ready for Vegas — I'll go and see them," fellow judge Heidi Klum told PEOPLE shortly after the live show performed.
"I think they're incredible. It's the costumes. It's like, Wow moments. It's like remembering, it's haunting. They kind of hypnotize you."
