Tyra Banks, who was tasked with announcing the winner of the 13th edition of the NBC's hit reality show, gave a fitting description of Shin yelling:
“The sexiest magician on the planet!”

Following the announcement, the 26-year-old Canadian-American looked ecstatic and even managed to shed a tear or two.

“I love you all so much, I love you all so much…I can't speak right now”
The judges on the show had nothing but praise for the magician. They also praised the fellow contestants namely Zurcaroh and Brian King Joseph who were declared the first runner-up and the second runner-up respectively.
Likewise, Stand-up comic Samuel J. Comroe had finished in the fourth position. Whereas, singer Micheal Ketter came in the fifth position.
The AGT finale also saw live performances from the rock band, Kiss and pop singer Bebe Rexha.
