Who’s dominated passed seasons? West Virginia native Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. beat out thousands of acts, to take home the coveted $1 million grand prize last season. He has since signed with Columbia/SYCO records and released his first album, “That’s Life,” this past November. Murphy Jr. is currently touring in select U.S. cities.

Mississippi-born soul singer Michael Grimm was recently crowned the winner of the fifth season’s competition. The win moved the humble soul singer to tears as he took home the show’s $1 million prize. Grimm, who promised to build his grandparents a house when he won “America’s Got Talent,” fulfilled that promise in mid-March, when Thomas and Laurie Butters moved into their new home in Mississippi. The couple, who raised Grimm and his sister, had lost their Hancock County home to Hurricane Katrina. He has also just signed a record deal with Epic records. Season 5 also brought national attention to then-10-year-old classical singer Jackie Evancho, who has gone on to release several best-selling albums.

Season 4 winner Kevin Skinner released his debut album, “Long Ride,” in 2010. One of that season’s finalists, Recycled Percussion, are currently headlining their own show at the Tropicana Las Vegas Theater.

Season 2 winner Terry Fator – a ventriloquist from Dallas, Texas – achieved his lifelong dream when he was crowned the second season champion. After the win, he went on to sign a five-year, $100-million-dollar deal to headline at the Mirage in Las Vegas.
