Fletcher Pilon was last night crowned the winner of Australia’s Got Talent.
The 14-year-old singer/songwriter from Wamberal on the NSW Central Coast received the greatest number of public votes across the two-part grand finale.
As the ultimate victor in the show that celebrates the unique and brilliant from all walks of life, he takes home a cheque for a life-changing $250,000.
After six audition episodes and five semi-finals, eleven acts were eventually selected to battle it out in the first part of the grand finale on Sunday.
Tonight we learnt that joining Fletcher in the top five acts, as voted by the public, were Chris Tamwoy, King Social, Sisters Doll and Matt McLaren.
Each of those acts gave us one final performance in an all-out contest to win the title of AGTchampion of 2016. But there could only be one winner.
Fletcher reprised the song he performed during his audition, Infinite Child, which was written in his brother’s memory. Fletcher’s younger brother, Banjo, died after being hit by a car while skateboarding just before Fletcher’s AGT audition.
