It started with 40 acts, and now, “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” is down to the final 10. The show didn’t announce the winner during the last episode, which featured the final performances. So when will the winner be crowned?

When will the ‘AGT: The Champions’ winner be announced?

  • The season 2 finale airs on NBC Monday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m MST.
  • At the end of the two-hour finale, one act will be crowned the best of the best.
  • The show was filmed last October, and the winner, which will be announced next week, has already been chosen by superfans (“AGT” viewers from all 50 states who vote on their favorite performances).

Who are the show’s frontrunners?

If it were up to the judges, the two acrobatic acts out of Utah — Duo Transcend and Sandou Trio Russian Bar — would likely be the show’s top contenders.

The high-flying moves — not to mention the flames, spikes and blindfold tricks — have had all four judges on their feet each week.

Based on the final performances Monday night, the India-based dance crew V. Unbeatable also has a shot at winning. Earlier in the season, the dancers immediately advanced to the final round when judge Howie Mandel gave them the golden buzzer, USA Today reported.

“This is by far the best act that has ever graced any of the stages in any talent show,” Mandel told the dancers following their routine during Monday night’s episode, according to USA Today.

Violinist Tyler Butler-Figueroa, 11, and 13-year-old singer Angelina Jordan — who won “Norway’s Got Talent” when she was 8 — have also regularly impressed the judges and audience throughout the season.

After Angelina’s rendition of Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” Monday night, judge Simon Cowell told her that “she made this final way, way better,” USA Today reported.

What do the fans say?

But in fan polls on TVLine and the entertainment website Gold Derby, Filipino singer Marcelito Pomoy — who has both a tenor and soprano voice range — has a substantial lead with more than 40% of the votes.

Something else to note:

Compared to season 1, the show’s second season has drawn less viewers. Peak viewership for season 1 came with the finale that brought in 10.5 million viewers. So far with season 2, peak viewership has been in the first episode, which brought in 8 million viewers, according to TV Series Finale website.
