British ventriloquist Paul Zerdin wins America's Got Talent
British ventriloquist Paul Zerdin has won this year's America's Got Talent.
The 43-year-old Londoner said he was "totally speechless" and "bowled over" to beat nine other acts in the final.
Two other British acts, Stevie Starr - the Professional Regurgitator - and magician John van der Put, who performs as Piff the Magic Dragon, also made it through to the final 10.
Zerdin wins nearly £645,000 and the chance to have his own show in Las Vegas, USA.
Zerdin was the early favourite to win the talent show following his performances in the early rounds.
After his performance in the final on Tuesday, judge and former Spice Girl Mel B said: "You're a well polished act, you're flawless."
