Fighting Gravity came in third and the flamboyant Prince Poppycock took fourth place.
The two-hour finals show was full of high profile talent and previous contestants - both the good and the bad.
One of the highlights of the night was for the finalists to perform a duet with one of their idols. Michael Grimm paired up with Jewel, Jackie Evancho with Sarah Brightman, Prince Poppycock pitted his vocals and pink wig opposite Donna Summer and Fighting Gravity provided a backdrop to Lionel Richie.
Other star performances included David Copperfield, Usher and a dance group from the Vegas Beatles show Love.
It's been a very enjoyable season. After thousands of auditions and hundreds of performances, America had a tough job selecting a winner from the four finalists. Grimm's talent and his heartfelt background made him a very deserving champion and he should have a stellar career ahead of him.
A few month's ago, Grimm was performing in coffee shops and lounges. Today, he's a millionaire and will be headlining an AGT touring show and a show at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. And that's what makes America and America's Got Talent so great. Dreams can come true.
AGT YouTube voting concluded July 9th.
