America’s Got Talent (AGT): All-Stars has crowned its new winner and made history in the process. Self-taught aerialist Aidan Bryant, 18, was declared the winner of the AGT extension series after weeks of intense competition, becoming the first aerialist to win the competition. In a post-win interview, Bryant expressed his gratitude for the support he received and his excitement about his new residency at the Luxor in Las Vegas, where he will perform twice a night, five days a week for a year. This blog post will look at Bryant’s journey to victory, the impact of his win, and what lies ahead for him.
Bryant first appeared on AGT in 2021, where he narrowly missed out on victory, losing to magician Dustin Tavella. He says that the experience of competing in season 16 crushed him. However, he did not give up, and when he heard about All-Stars, he knew he had to take the chance to prove himself. He was determined to prove that he could be No. 1 as an aerialist, and his dedication paid off.
In the final episode, Bryant gave a breathtaking performance that wowed the judges, including Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, and Heidi Klum, and the audience. He performed a routine on stage with American Idol alum and current Queen frontman Adam Lambert, and was also joined by fellow finalists, The Bello Sisters. In an interview after the show, Bryant said that Lambert was “very sweet and awesome,” and praised his personality off-stage.
During the final episode, Crews narrowed down the 11 finalists to the top five acts. In addition to Bryant, dance group Light Balance Kids, saxophonist Avery Dixon, magician Aidan McCann, and ventriloquist Ana Maria Mărgean nabbed the coveted spots. With it down to Dixon and Bryant, Crews finally revealed it was the 18-year-old aerialist who won the competition. Bryant admitted to having a small doubt about winning because he messed up his final performance, but his hard work and the support of the superfans paid off.
Bryant’s victory is significant because it is the first time an aerialist has won the competition. His win has inspired a new generation of aerialists who see the potential for their careers. Bryant’s victory is also significant because he is a self-taught artist who learned everything he knows in just two years. His win highlights the importance of hard work, dedication, and persistence in achieving one’s goals.
Looking ahead, Bryant is excited to start his new residency at the Luxor in Las Vegas, where he will perform twice a night, five days a week for a year. He hopes to collaborate with Pink, whom he was inspired by at the very beginning of his aerialist journey. Bryant’s win is just the beginning of what promises to be a bright future for this talented artist.
In conclusion, Aidan Bryant’s victory on AGT: All-Stars is a historic moment for the show and for the aerialist community. His win highlights the importance of hard work, dedication, and persistence in achieving one’s goals.
