The votes are in and America’s Got Talent: All Stars winner is Aidan Bryant.
During Monday night’s two-hour finale, the top 11 finalists performed one last time on the world’s biggest stage. After a slew of impressive acts and memorable guest appearances, AGT: All Stars superfans helped narrow down the intense competition to the top five finalists. In the end, Aidan was declared the winner of AGT: All Stars 2023. The nerve-racking announcement was made when the aerialist won more votes than Avery Dixon, Light Balance Kids, Ana-Maria Mārgean and Aidan McCan.
The inaugural season of AGT: All Stars kicked off with 60 acts from across the globe. But the 18 year old instantly stood out to judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel — again.
As viewers may remember, he originally competed in AGT season 16 back in summer 2021 and he finished in second place behind magician Dustin Tavella. This time around, Aidan made an epic comeback with gravity-defying stunts, stunning contortions and jaw-dropping acrobatics.
The first season of the new NBC spinoff show concluded with special musical performances by Adam Lambert, Babyface and Weezer. Plus, AGT alums Terry Fator and Mat Franco returned to the show to assist up-and-coming talent. By the time host Terry Crews announced that Aidan was the winner of AGT: All Stars, folks were already on their toes and many wasted no time taking to social media with their thoughts.
“YES!!! Congrats, @AidanBryantAGT!!! Much deserved!!” one person wrote on Twitter. “And let me just say the ‘super fans’ got it right! The winner was my pick from the beginning & should have won their season! #Vindication,” another added. “AIDAN BRYANT CONGRATULATIONS CHAMPION 🏆,” a different fan said.

Understandably though, there were other AGT: All Stars fans who expressed disappointment that Avery wasn’t crowned the winner. “Avery Dixon should have won! I’m so angry! I hope he get a record deal!” a follower tweeted. “This has got to be some kind of joke? Who are these super fans? Do they even exist? I’m happy for the kid but come on,” someone else commented. “Avery Dixon you were and are the best. Only good things your way!!!” another chimed in.
Opinions aside, longtime AGT viewers may notice a distinct detail about the winner’s prize. According to Simon, Aidan didn’t earn money nor a show in Las Vegas. “There’s nothing to win on this show other than the title,” Simon told Entertainment Tonight.
So, what’s next for the aerialist? We’re sure major things but in the meantime, we’ll keep an eye out for news on Aidan’s Instagram.
