Miguel Dakota was hands down the hottie of the season on ‘America’s Got Talent’ even though he lost out on the million-dollar prize. However, I do not think that he deserved to be the first contestant voted off on the Sept. 17 finale — he should have made it to at least the Top 3!
Mat Franco was the first magician to win America’s Got Talent, beating out the other five finalists, including Miguel Dakota who rocked out with Lenny Kravitz on the live finale at Radio City Music Hall. Even though Miguel wasn’t the big winner, he’s won over tons of fangirls and I think that his unique rocker vibe will keep him around in the music industry for quite some time. Read on for the 21-year-old singer’s EXCLUSIVE interview with HollywoodLife.com!
‘AGT’ Finale: Miguel Dakota Shouldn’t Have Been Kicked Off So Soon
Everyone is a winner when you’re in the final six, but I personally have a bit of a problem with Miguel being the number six!
I admit, after watching him perform live with Lenny Kravitz at the Sept. 17 finale, I’m totally a fangirl, and was super impressed with his charisma and talent, and wish he would have at least made it to the Top 3!
Throughout the season, Miguel won over the judges and America with his cute looks and unique voice, and on the Season 9 finale, he wowed with an incredible duet to “American Woman,” proving that he can hold his own with one of the greatest rockstars of all time.
Miguel Dakota Has Big Plans Ahead
Even though I was disappointed to see Miguel go, I was so happy to chat with him backstage on the red carpet right after his send-off. He was so personable, lovely and excited to be there! There wasn’t a bit of sadness with this pro.
“It’s been an amazing experience,” Miguel told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “None of us can go home feeling like we left anything here. We all put out heart into it, and I think everyone had a great last performance.”
Miguel especially has nothing to be sad over, with America’s Got Talent Live coming up. “First thing is go perform with the rest of the acts at Planet Hollywood in Vegas,” he tells us about his plans. “After that, hopefully recording and putting out an album and touring. That’s next on my list. I want to just get out there and play music and be doing what I love.”
Miguel Dakota Shouts Out To His Fangirls & Reveals His Celebrity Crush
Whenever he releases his album, Miguel knows that he’ll have tons of screaming girls behind him, which he says is simply amazing.
“They’ve definitely had huge support for me. I appreciate every one of them,” the singer says about his fans. “Just to have them backing me and voting for me all season, and I hope supporting my music after this, as well. I just appreciate everything about them. Love them all for sure!”
Someone else he loves? Selena Gomez!
We asked Miguel who his celebrity crush was: “Oh man, you put me on the spot! Selena Gomez is up there. She seems like a great person.”
