Landau got emotional when host Nick Cannon announced the final results, and the crowd went WILD!

America’s Got Talent season 6 had plenty of fan favorites, but only one could win. Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., 36, not only got the chance to sing with his idol, Patti LaBelle, on the season finale, but he took home the big win! WATCH!

The other final three acts were Poplyfe, who performed with Stevie Wonder,  iLuminate, who performed with Cobra Starship, and the Silhouettes, who danced while LeAnn Rimes sang.

Other guest stars that appeared during the 2-hour episode included Def Leppard, OneRepublic, Tony Bennett, Queen Latifah, Cirque du Soleil, and last year’s second-place America’s Got Talent finisher, Jackie Evancho.

The winner will headline a show in Las Vegas!
