Ventriloquist wins 'America's Got Talent'
Texan Terry Fator scooped the $1 million prize in the NBC show finale, beating reggae singer Cas Haley.
The 42-year-old wowed judges Sharon Osbourne, David Hasselhoff and Piers Morgan – as well as American TV viewers – with his turtle puppet's rendition of Roy Orbison's hit 'Crying', followed by a duet with Kermit The Frog.
Beatboxer Antoinette "Butterscotch" Clinton and 14-year-old country singer Julienne Irwin finished third and fourth in the competition.
Fator, who has been booked for a headlining show in Las Vegas next month, told Entertainment Tonight: "I told Cas before the show, 'I really think you're gonna win this thing'. All of the top ten were just phenomenal talents.
"To win this thing is beyond my wildest dreams. I'm just totally blown away."
