The grand finale
We got to see lots of performances in the finale as there were quite a few talented acts left to whittle down to just one winner. The finalists included dad and daughter duo, The Nevertheless Nocks, “heavy machinery agility” act JCB Dancing Diggers, fire dancer Will Brandon and aerial artist, Erica Lemay.
We then had the golden buzzer receivers welcomed back to the stage, these included Aaron Wheelz, Alfredo Silva’a Cage Riders, Verge Aero, Cyndel Flores and Lemay.
The final two spots were filled by free runner Aaron Evans and high wire performer, Jade Kendar-Martin who were voted for via the public on Superfans.
The acts were quickly whittled down to a final four consisting of Aaron Wheelz, Lemay, the Cage Riders and Kindar-Martin but these were soon knocked to a final two by Terry.
Our top two finalists for the season were Aaron Wheelz and Alfredo’s Cage Riders.

Who won AGT Extreme 2022?
After the top 12 were whittled down to a top two, the acts got to perform for the judges one final time to fight for the top spot. Simon was incredibly impressed with both of the acts and said:
After everything that both of you have done, somebody’s got to win, and I can’t wait to hear the results. Genuinely, I don’t think either of you could have done any more. Good luck.Simon Cowell, AGT Extreme
Terry then announced that the first-ever winner of AGT Extreme 2022 was Alfredo Silva’s Cage Riders. The act deservingly won the title of most extreme talent in the US as well as a whopping $500,000.
Alfredo was over the moon when he heard he had won and dropped to his knees in shock. He was also extremely happy for the rest of his team as he had previously revealed that his best friends were all part of his act.
Alfredo has been on AGT before
Eagle-eyed fans will have probably recognised Alfredo from a prior season of AGT. He appeared on the show in 2016 for Season 11 where he auditioned as part of a life throwing dump with his wife, Anna Silva. The pair were called Deadly Games.
They did very well and managed to make it to the semi-finals but were unfortunately booted off before they could grab the win.
They returned a second time for AGT The Champions but again didn’t manage to win. Alfredo fans are over the moon that his persistence paid off and he finally bagged a win.
