Very funny, very clever, very cute – all six finalists had something to offer as the seventh season of America's Got Talent wrapped up on Thursday night.

But seven months after the first auditions were held, only one act could stand alone and snag the $1 million prize and a show in Las Vegas.

Who was crowned the winner? Read on to find out ...

This season went to the dogs – the Olate Dogs, that is. The pack of acrobatic animals and their two trainers outlasted comedian Tom Cotter, who finished as the runner-up.

William Close and the Earth Harp Collective placed third, David Garibaldi and his CMYKs fourth, Joe Castillo fifth and The Untouchables sixth.

If you weren't much of a dog person, Thursday's finale had plenty of other performances, including appearances by Justin Bieber, Flo Rida, Ne-Yo and the Blue Man Group.
