He did it and now Missouri has yet another reality TV winner. Opera singer Neal E. Boyd, 32, won the third season of NBC’s America’s Got Talent last night.
Tear streamed down his face as he learned he won by the closest margin in the show’s history, less than a half of a percent.
"I love you, mom," Boyd said. "I love you, Sikeston. I love you, Missouri."
Boyd, grew up in Sikeston and now lives in the St. Louis area where he was an insurance salesman.
As the winner he received $1 million dollars and will perform in his own show in Las Vegas.
