The Lebanese all female alternative dance group collects the $1 million prize, and the opportunity to headline a residency at the Luxor Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.
NBC’s talent quest reached its climax Wednesday night (Sept. 14), after a round of final, live performances. When the votes were counted, there could be only one winner: Mayyas.
The dancers emerged victorious, beating out a final group which included saxophonist Avery Dixon; country trio Chapel Hart; teen Polish singer Sara James; AI act Metaphysic; and Australian pole dancer Kristy Sellars, who finished the season as runner-up.
The finale was an all-star affair, kicking off with a performance from Black Eyed Peas, and featuring some big-name collaborators.
For their final performance Tuesday night before America voted, Mayyas enchanted everyone in the room, and watching back home, with an exotic and flawless performance.
“There are no words to explain to you what we were feeling over here,” the Modern Family star said after seeing the group perform for the first time, calling their initial number “the most beautiful, creative dancing I’ve ever seen.”
