The following Today show entertainment video contains an interview with Kenichi Ebina. He is the Japanese dancer who just won the 8th season of America’s Got Talent. Kenichi took home one million dollars for the win. The results show was on Wednesday, September 18. 2013. This video interview is from the next day (September 19).
Kenichi is the first dancer to win AGT. But he won by creating a show, not just dancing. Kenichi added magic, mime, and interaction with characters on a TV screen. Dancing is just part of his act.
Kenichi thought he would finish in 3rd or 4th place. When he got in the top 2, he was like, “What am I going to do?”
He thought about the million dollars and his life changing before winning. But he tried not to.
Ebina said he has been really busy over the past two weeks because he was putting his routines together.
