kenichi ebina americas got talent 2 'America's Got Talent' Season 8 winner: Kenichi Ebina or Taylor Williamson, who won the prize?“America’s Got Talent” Season 8 revealed its winner Wednesday (Sept. 18) — who takes home the prize money and the Las Vegas show?

The six acts left were brought out together and one by one, they were eliminated. The act that finished sixth was Cami Bradley, which really surprised us, honestly. She was terrific and we thought she was a shoo-in to finish in the top 3.

The act that finished fifth was Collins Key and fourth was Forte, which was about right for us. Jimmy Rose finished third — we would’ve swapped him with Cami Bradley.

But the Final 2 came down to comic Taylor Williamson versus dancer Kenichi Ebina. Kenichi had our vote and he was crowned the winner.

“It’s amazing,” says Ebina. “I want to thank my wife and my daughter, being supportive all the way through. … And all the fans that support us.”

Seriously, Kenichi is an amazing dancer. We’re kind of bummed we can’t see him on “So You Think You Can Dance” because we think he’d be so good.

Did the right person win?
