The America’s Got Talent season 15 finale starts out with a number of amazing performances. Cristina Rae performs with Ryan Tedder, while Bishop Briggs sings as The Bello Sisters perform. Archie Williams and Marvin Winans perform together as well. After Archie’s performance, he gets a special message from Meghan Markle! Meghan reveals that she and Prince Harry have been watching him from the beginning and have been “cheering” him on.
Blake Shelton performs alongside Broken Roots. Roberta Battaglia and Kenadi Dodds team up with Julia Michaels for a powerful performance. Ava Max and Daneliya Tuleshova stun with their duet of “Kings and Queens.” Other AGT acts like Bad Salsa, Alan Silva, V. Unbeatable, and Detroit Youth Choir perform as well.
But eventually, it’s time for the top 5 reveal, which means heartbreaking eliminations. The top 5 acts are Alan Silva, Cristina Rae, Broken Roots, Roberta Battaglia, and Brandon Leake. Terry then announces the act that came in 5th place: Alan Silva.

Cristina Rae shockingly comes in third place. She begins to tear up thanking the fans and Heidi Klum. “My baby is gonna be on this stage, and he’s going to win,” Cristina promises. Heidi, who gave Cristina her Golden Buzzer, tells Cristina that she loves her so much. “You are a winner in my heart,” Heidi says as she sheds tears.
Now it’s down to just Brandon Leake and Broken Roots. The winner receives $1 million and a headline show in Las Vegas. Second place goes to Broken Roots.
