British ventriloquist Paul Zerdin was crowned the winner of "America's Got Talent" Season 10 (AGT 2015) at Radio City Music Hall, New York, on Wednesday after beating nine finalists.

He walked away with $1 million prize money and will engage in "America's Got Talent Live" at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas from 22 to 24 October.

Fellow finalists Drew Lynch (stand-up comedian) and Piff The Magic Dragon (magician) will join him and tickets to the show are available at AGT Vegas website.

Paul Zerdin, one of the most consistent acts this season, put up an impressive show in the finale too. It seemed like the audience would be confused with the three puppets he brought during the finals, but it seemed to have worked for him instead.

Stand-up comedian Drew Lynch, who was a fan favourite to win the competition, was the runner-up, Oz Pearlman (mentalist) was in third place, Stevie Starr (The Professional Regurgitator) in fourth position and The CraigLewis Band stood fifth. 

The Season 10 finale show at Radio City Music Hall also had performances by Rachel Platten, Penn & Teller, Jeffrey Ross, Mat Franco and this year's finalists.

Sadly, Howard Stern bid goodbye to America's Got Talent after serving as its judge for four seasons.

Auditions for America's Got Talent season 11 will begin on 7 November in Detroit, before moving to other cities like New York, Orlando, Dallas, Phoenix, Kansas City, Salt Lake City, San Jose, Las Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles and Atlanta.
