'America's Got Talent' Season 17 Winner Divides NBC Viewers

The winner of America's Got Talent season 17 was crowned during the NBC show's grand finale Wednesday, but not all fans are happy with the vote.

After weeks of auditions and live shows, the 11 finalists took to the stage for one last chance at impressing the judges, Simon Cowell, Sofia Vergara, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel, and winning the grand prize of $1 million.

The episode also saw performances from country singers Darius Rucker and Jon Pardi, rap group Black Eyed Peas, former America's Got Talent winner and magician Shin Lim, and ex-finalists from the show, dancers Silhouettes.

The final two acts left in the competition were pole dancer Kristy Sellars and Lebanese dance troupe Mayyas, who both competed in week 5 of the semifinals, with host Terry Crews announcing the latter as the winners of America's Got Talent 2022.

Following Mayyas' triumph, many fans were full of praise for the winning act, who also triumphed in Arabs Got Talent.

One AGT fan Edward Tobin tweeted: "I called it from their audition, congratulations Mayas you rocked."

America's Got Talent viewers appeared to be divided, however, as other fans wrote on social media that they weren't happy that Mayyas were the winners.

As well as the cash prize, Mayyas have won the chance to headline America's Got Talent Las Vegas Live.

After their final performance, that aired on part one of the America's Got Talent finale on Tuesday, Mayyas received a standing ovation from all four judges.
