Best America's Got Talent Contestants

There are a lot of good contestants but some were better then others!

The Top Ten

1 Jackie Evancho Jackie Evancho Jacqueline Marie "Jackie" Evancho is an American classical crossover singer who gained wide recognition at an early age and, since 2009, has issued an EP and five albums, including a platinum and gold album and three Billboard 200 top 10 debuts .

I had my back to the television the August 10th evening. I had not been impressed with what I had seen prior. Then I heard the "voice". Whoa! I turned to see who was singing, and I remember saying out loud: "What the...? You're kidding! No way! " Yes way. A little wisp of a girl singing a classic with more feeling and emotion than I'd ever heard. With a voice that was jaw-dropping, and more pleasant to my ears than anyone I'd ever heard.

I've seen her live in concert 8 times since then. Every time she somehow brings even more to the audience.

She was the most profound contestant on since America's Got Talent started and if it were not for her age and a desire to protect her, she would have won for sure. I will never forget her performances and neither will Sharon Osborne

Regardless of the praise the AGT judges pour over some of the contestants since Jackie, none, absolutely none have come within a mile of Jackie's exceptional talents. She has set the bar so high, it will be very difficult for anyone to come near. I am sure there are some exceptional talents out there, and Jackie has opened the door for many to attempt to reach her star. But although some come very close, none has yet succeeded. Nevertheless, Jackie is a phenomena who has made it possible for others to try. And this is a very good thing.

The most down to earth talent ever. Her voice has kept me alive the last few years. You see I have battled cancer twice and her talent and her voice have given me the hope and faith to move on and challenge the cancer. I hope to see her perform in a concert one day..

2 Grace Vanderwaal

Grace shot AGT ratings thru the roof, we watched the show because Grace was on. She has followers around the world, many believe she covered "One and Only" with more emotion than Adele did the original. Speaking of original, she won singing nothing but originals, who else has done that? Humble, Modest, Empathetic, Caring, Original, Intelligent, Everything we should all strive to be. Grace Avery VanderWaal IS a star, she was born a star. This is all just kismet playing out.

Grace has a great voice and when she performed on America's got talent, everyone's mind was blown. Howie Mandel was so quick to hit the golden buzzer, there's no doubt Grace VanderWaal is truly amazing. And she says she was working on a full album, which she finished, the album is called "Perfectly Imperfect," and when I say that album has the best songs I ever heard, I'm not lying.

Grace is just so inspiring and young. When you first hear her singing you feel shook, but then you just feel so honored TO SHARE THE EARTH WITH THIS HERO

Grace VanderWaal has won America's got talent, and boy, she deserves it. She writes her own songs, and then sings them like a superstar. The judges made the right choice making Grace VanderWaal a star

3 Anna Graceman

Anna the most talented, the most beautiful and she struck me most of all!

Good singer like jackie evancho butt less

AGT's bias against singer-songwriters hurt Anna on the show. Had she been allowed to sing her original songs, she would have been in the top three at least. She went independent and now owns her own label, and is about to release her second album (her first would be gold or platinum if she had signed with a major label - she's that good). Jackie Evancho gets my nod for best AGT contestant and vocalist, but Anna Graceman got my vote simply because she is an all-around better musician, and therefore scores more 'got talent' points with me.

She was the first and only contestant I ever voted for. I REALLY wanted her to win! - LarkwingFlight

4 Lindsey Stirling Lindsey Stirling

I saw her in concert last year. Absolutely amazing! Better than some of the major acts I have seen. The best part of this is that she made her self successful, creating (or bring into mainstream) a genre of music of her own., music which the record companies rejected.

It's such a shocker that she didn't even make it to the finals, but has become one of the most famous people to have competed on the show. She shows that sometimes the show can fail and great talent and brand can fall though the show's fingers

As far as post-show success goes, Lindsey Stirling takes the cake!

Awesome awesome awesome! She has a vision and works hard to create her own lane to success!

Unbelievable talent and voice! His music is timeless and appeals to all ages. He is so humble and displays no egotism. He is simply filled with passion when he sings and performs.

He is awesome, his latest album is great, wish he could get more promotion

The Newcomers

? Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Taylor Alison Swift (Taylor Swift) is an American singer-songwriter. She was born on December 13, 1989 in Reading, Pennsylvania. She is best known for writing break up songs and for having more than 5 Grammys . She became interested in country music when she was around 9 years old and after watching ...read more.

Taylor Swift's first album was called Taylor Swift. Even thought it was country music, it was still breathtaking. And then her most recent album, 1989, got hundreds of millions of sales and blew everyone out of their seats. Just a year after she released it, she went on tour. The 1989 world tour, dare I say, was the best thing I ever seen.

The single coolest and most unique act you will see from this show ever. They would've gotten the golden buzzer if it were made before then. It was a total shame that they lost the finals to a little girl who could sing. - AlphonsoRichardson

Best contestants ever. Have been following agt for last 6 years and none of the performances are as memorable as their first audition. Still go back and see their agt performances and feel like nothing on the show has ever been this great. They didn't win as till 2010, singing acts were more popular. If they were competing now, they would've won. But I've to say that I was glad that they lost to Michael Grimm(a singer who probably won the show with his first performance alone) and glad that Jackie Evancho didn't win as Piers was pushing for that.
