America is going to have a tough time voting for their favorite act after a nearly flawless night of performances on Tuesday's America's Got Talent.
The show's finals round – which featured routines by Season 6's remaining competitors: Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr., Team iLuminate, Poplyfe and Silhouettes – even had typically hard-headed judge Piers Morgan raving that "everyone in the top four is a winner."
The night began with another crowd-pleaser from season frontrunner Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. The car washer-turned-jazz musician's rendition of Frank Sinatra's classic tune "My Way" was "a $1 million performance," according to Morgan.

Landau Eugene Murphy, Jr. went from washing cars in West Virginia to singing classic jazz tunes in front of millions of America's Got Talent viewers. His hard work, combined with the positive response from the show's judges and audience make him confident he will definitely walk away with the prizes of $1 million and his own headlining show in Las Vegas.
"I'm the one to beat," Murphy told PEOPLE on Friday at an L.A. press day for the show. "The only thing that's missing in Vegas is the rat pack. That's it. Right now you've got Michael Bublé, Harry Connick, Jr., and then you have Landau Eugene, Jr. Put one more guy with us and you've got the whole rat pack."
But his desire to land big bucks and Sin City fame isn't entirely for selfish purposes.

After last week's disappointing acts on America's Got Talent, the judges seemed much more pleased with Tuesday night's performances.
Most of the acts – which included an extreme jump-rope team, a yo-yo act, and a couple who hooked wires to themselves and swung household objects from them – seemed to give their all this week. But it was the musical performances that won the judges over most.
Among the standouts: Poplyfe's rendition of Adele's "Rolling in the Deep." Howie Mandel called the six-member group the "best act" of the night "so far." Sharon Osbourne called the performance "fantastic," and said, "You've got everything going for you." Even Piers Morgan complimented the group.
