This season’s final performances on America’s Got Talent had a little bit of everything – music, dancing, comedy, art and yes, acrobatic dogs. But only one winner will take home the $1 million prize and a headlining show in Las Vegas.

All six finalists gave generally strong performances Wednesday in their last shot to impress judges Sharon Osbourne, Howie Mandel and Howard Stern.

David Garibaldi and His CMYKs (a group of backup dancers/painting assistants) whipped up an impressive portrait of Albert Einstein, while the other artist in the finals, Joe Castillo, did sand portraits of the judges and host Nick Cannon.

Comedian Tom Cotter had everyone laughing with his bit on fairy tales and their strange expressions. The young Latin dancers in The Untouchables delivered a spirited routine set to Ike and Tina Turner’s version of “Proud Mary.”

William Close had the audience spellbound once again with a rendition of “America the Beautiful” played on his giant “earth harp.” And the Olate Dogs were well, the Olate Dogs – a pack of lovable pooches doing incredible tricks.

But among the six acts, only one can triumph at Thursday night’s finale. Who should it be? Tell us below.
