America's Got Talent fans have crowned the winner of season 12, but there were some mixed emotions when some fan-favorites were eliminated.

There was a plethora of talent to choose from on the stage with year, with singers, dancers, a comedian, and a  dog act for America to choose from.

With 52-million votes cast ahead of Wednesday's results show, it proved the top ten finalists had some competition for the crown.

Kechi Okwuchi, Evie Clair, Angelica Hale, Chase Goehring, Mandy Harvey, Preacher Lawson, Darci Lynne Farmer, Diavolo, Light Balance and Sarah & Hero performed for your votes for the final time at the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles, and they each made it a difficult choice to crown a winner.

However, only 12-year old Darci Lynne, 9-year-old Angelica and the dance troupe Light Balance made the top 3.

For many this came as a shock, thinking that Kechi, Mandy and Evie would have been likely shoo-ins for top 3, potentially winning it all.

Evie Clair

Evie Clair shockingly returned to AGT following the tragic death of her father, just a week previous.  

“My dad always told me after I started something, to always finish it. That’s why I’m fighting until the end, just like he did,” Evie said.

She sang "What a Wonderful World" as a tribute to her late father, since it was his favorite song.

Mandy Harvey

Mandy is a Deaf singer that previously in the night performed a duet with Shania Twain.

After losing her hearing when she was 18-years-old, she told her story of her intense soul-searching to reunite herself with her passion.

“After I lost my hearing I gave up, but I want to do more with my life than just give up,” she said, “[I] figured out how to get back into singing with muscle memory, using visual turners and trusting my pitch.”

She brought the audience to tears in her audition which caused Simon Cowell to hit the Golden Buzzer.

Kechi Okwuchi

Kechi, also a young singer, has a story that most people can't even dream of enduring. When she was just 16-years-old she was on board a flight that crashed over Nigeria, claiming the lives of 107 passengers. She was just 1 of 2 survivors of the crash.

“Lying in the hospital bed with bandages from head to foot. Not being able to more or do anything else, music was my escape. And that’s why it means so much to me,” Okwuchi told the AGT judges.

She continued to stun audiences during her performances, which left many people wondering how she didn't make it into the top 3.

So what did the winner deliver that put them over these fan favorites?
