"America's Got Talent" (2016) Season 11 finale performances were spectacular. It won't be easy for America to choose a winner out of the 10 finalists, who are bunch of talents. Judges – Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel – didn't help either as they praised all the acts almost equally.

Recap

Jazz singer Sal Valentinetti was the first to hit the stage on Tuesday night. He performed "Mack the Knife" by Bobby Darin and nailed it. He even incorporated the names of the judges into the song, making it sound even cooler. Simon Cowell said that the performance could upset other acts in the competition.

Contortionist and hand balancer Sofie Dossi took her performance to a new level with unbelievable back-flips and aerial ring routine. It looks somewhat repetitive but no doubt a stunning performance.

Linkin' Bridge performed "See You Again" by Charlie Puth. It was a beautiful rendition with right dose of emotion and harmony. They added more spice to their rendition by bringing backup vocalists towards the end of their performance.

Opera singer Laura Bretan performed "O Mio Babbino Caro" in the finale and killed it. She has been consistent throughout the competition, but this was perhaps her best performance. She seemed to have saved the best for the last.

Mentalists, The Clairvoyants, continued to mesmerise the audience with their act. This time, Amelie not only correctly spelled the birthday of a man in the crowd, but also the expiry date and last four numbers of Simon Cowell's credit card while she was submerged underwater. Then a pendant with "Wanna Bean" engraved in it was handed to Mel B. It was the words Howie and Mel B mentioned a few minutes earlier.

Brian Justin Crum sang Micheal Jackson's "Man in the Mirror." It may make a few think at one point of time that his song choice was not alright, but he killed the song with a chilling performance, transforming the song into a whole new version. It was a jaw-dropping rendition.

Comedic mime Tape Face came up with a brilliant idea and performance at a time when many thought that he could have run out of ideas after his "not-so-good" performance in the semi-finals. This time, he called Mel B to the stage and placed a toilet seat around her neck. Then came the toilet paper that was tied to the microphone. It was cool and funny.

Juggler Viktor Kee brought something new to his performance by juggling with a flaming ball and balancing a ball on his face. There was a little fumble during the performance with a ball falling to the floor, but that didn't affect the rest of his performance. It was beautiful.

Philadelphia Eagles footballer-cum-magician Jon Dorenbos' run in the competition has been smooth. His way of performing the card trick with an inspirational story and strong narration entertained the audience.

As expected, singer-songwriter Grace VanderWaal sang yet another original song called "Clay." Everything was beautiful, from her voice to lyrics to tunes. It seemed like the best was kept for the last to ensure that the show ends on a good note.

Well, who will win the "America's Got Talent" (2016) Season 11 title? It can be anybody -- Grace VanderWaal, Sal Valentinetti, Tape Face, Brian Justin Crum, The Clairvoyants, or any finalist for that matter. Let America choose the winner!
