Maroon 5 continues the NFL's recent shift away from the classic rock acts that headlined numerous Super Bowls of the early aughts. Looking over their career, Maroon 5 could actually be a decent Halftime show if they make sure to invite all their friends.

Following the performance, judge Howie Mandel said: "You are on fire, you're incredible". "Simon, I know this might sound satirical but it's not, thank you". While many were just "happy it wasn't a singer that won this year".

Courtney was in the final pair alongside her fellow singer, Michael Ketterer.

"I felt a reaction in the room tonight when he sang the Garth song, it was actually incredible, and yeah, we are going to be working together, there's no doubt", Cowell said.

"America's Got Talent" has crowned its newest champion. In the semi-finals, Hadwin performed a cover of Steppenwolf's 1968 hit Born To Be Wild and was described as a "bundle of excitement" by Cowell.
