"America's Got Talent" host Nick Cannon, poses with judges Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel.
How does a network fill two hours for a finale results show? Easy.
Bring on multiple musical acts, like Flo Rida, Ne-Yo, Green Day and Justin Bieber with Big Sean, team the finalists with celebrities who can work with their talent for a little performance and give the viewers multiple video montages and flashbacks.
But finally, after an hour of America's Got Talent, we got to see what the votes revealed.
Coming in last place were The Untouchables, who instantly started tearing up, but Sharon Osbourne reassured them saying, "Don't be sad, little ones, because it's my last show, too. So we're both leaving together."
Joe Castillo took fifth place, and David Garibaldi and His CMYKs came in at fourth. "From the first time I saw you," Howard Stern said, "I was amazed." And then there were three.
Boos were heard from the crowd when William Close was announced as third. Then, it came down to Tom Cotter and The Olate Dogs.
Nick Cannon announced, "The winner of the $1 million and the star of the headline show in Las Vegas is...(extremely long dramatic pause) Olate Dogs!"
