While judges Kate Ritchie, Shane Jacobson, Alesha Dixon and David Walliams whittled a plethora of talent down to the final six, it was the voting audience of Australia who decided the ultimate winner.
This was the first year that international acts were invited to compete on the AGT stage, bringing a diverse world of talent to awe-inspired audiences.
Balancing act The Ramadhani Brothers, comic performer Walison Muh, acrobatic group Acromazing, young singer Sienna Katelyn, comedian Emo Majok and aerial artist Oleg were up against each other in an exciting finale night.
And taking out AGT for 2022 was the all-female acrobatic gymnastics troupe Acromazing.
After host Ricki-Lee revealed the results, Acromazing member Maddi Lacey said: “This is life-changing. We just want to thank everybody in the crowd tonight, every contestant, all of the girls in Acromazing, all of our beautiful coaches, and all of Australia for voting for us to win, and our beautiful judges too.”
First up for the night, in an attempt to win the hearts and minds of AGT viewers, was Tanzanian duo The Ramadhani Brothers.
Kate Ritchie’s Golden Buzzer winners blew the judges away, taking their astonishing act to the next level with feats of incredible strength, grace and balance.
“I don’t know what it is about you guys, but I am just so moved by you and I want you to do so well,” Alesha Dixon gushed.
“You bring the extra special spice to AGT!”
Travelling clown, comedian and mime artist Walison Muh was the definition of crowd-pleasing talent, this time getting judge David Walliams involved in his adorable shenanigans.
Doing crazy things with blow-up balloons, Walison enacted an archery scenario that was both cute and full of surprise moments.
“Oh my goodness Walison, I absolutely adore you,” Ritchie said after his act.
“I was peeking behind me and looking at some of the little faces – and the big faces – in the audience, and that’s all I need to see, that absolute joy and sense of anticipation.”
Acromazing is a group of 19 talented girls from the NSW south coast with an acrobatic technique the judges have described as “faultless.”
For their finale performance, they produced a moving routine that had the judges and the audience in raptures, with Shane Jacobson calling their routine “poetry in motion.”
“Absolutely faultless, and so incredibly beautiful I wanted to cry,” Kate Ritchie added.
“It may sound silly, but I feel so proud of you, I have a young daughter myself and seeing a unit of young girls working so beautifully together, you should be so proud.”
Singer Sienna Katelyn is only 11 years old, but she has a powerhouse voice and the maturity of someone much older.
For the AGT final, she took to the stage, with her father playing guitar, to perform Lauren Daigle’s You Say.
As she got deeper into the song, her voice soared with emotion.
Added Alesha Dixon: “I have so much respect for you – you are so courageous for your age, I wish I’d had that courage when I was your age,” Alesha Dixon said.
“When you hit that sweet spot, your voice is unstoppable.”
“I’m so excited to see where you are going to go in the world and you’re on exactly the right stage to start your career,” Shane Jacobson added.
Perth-based comedian Emo Majok had everybody laughing, but he also manages to everybody thinking – about racism, prejudice, and how those things can be overcome, or called out when seen.
“You make us laugh at things that we should also be listening to,” Kate Ritchie said.
“All of those messages that you’re putting across are much more important than the joke themselves, so thank you so much.
“I absolutely love what you do.”
Finally, Ukrainian aerial artist Oleg wowed the audience once again, creating a graceful, elegant routine that he said was a tribute to his war-torn homeland.
After his previous performance, Kate Ritchie’s X-rated comment about Oleg’s physical appeal had the audience in gales of laughter.
This time around, she said she wanted to focus on the incredible performance itself.
“All jokes aside, we’ve covered the fact that everything is pleasing to the eye,” she said.
“But your strength, and the performance itself, continues to be wonderful, so well done, you should be really proud of yourself this evening.”
As the voting lines opened for Australians to choose their AGT winner, viewers were then treated to a spectacular performance by the cast of Hairspray The Musical.
Just minutes later, the winner of AGT for 2022 was announced in a truly life-changing moment.
