When speaking to US Today, “America’s Got Talent” judge Howard Stern had high praise for the show winner.
“You know, every time someone was eliminated tonight, it was really kind of shocking, because these are really talented people. They all gave it their all, but Kenichi is one of a kind and I said, ‘Let’s find a super star,’ and I think we did,” Stern said.
