Video: Olate Dogs Beat Garibaldi to Win 'America's Got Talent'

David Garibaldi and His CMYKs were eliminated in the final episode of 'America's Got Talent' Thursday night.

Former student David Garibaldi's journey on "America's Got Talent" came to an end in the show's finale episode Thursday night.

Garibaldi and His CMYKs finished in fourth place out of the six finalists, while the acrobatic canine act Olate Dogs were crowned the winners. They'll receive a million dollar prize and their own Las Vegas performance.

"This has been the most amazing journey in my life," Garibaldi told the judges when the results were announced. He dedicated his group's journey to the late painter Denny Dent, who he said invented the style of painting he uses.

The full episode is embedded above, and Garibaldi's elimination comes at approximately the 62-minute mark.

Judge Howard Stern praised the performance painters.

"You electrified our lives," he said.

Posting on Facebook and Twitter, Garibaldi reflected on the show's run Friday morning.

"Flying home right now thinking about this incredible journey on AGT," he wrote. "I can't wait to show the world what else is in my imagination."


What did you think of the results? Did you think the right act won, or should Garibaldi have ranked higher? Tell us in the comments.

Yes, but also athletes, dancers, acrobats, actors, and such are also "trained" in a way but still possess the "raw" talent if they are successful. Not all dogs can be trained to that level, and the men that care for, and do train these dogs are ultimately the ones rewarded for their expertise and efforts. Vegas is well known for animal acts such as Siegfried and Roy, and therefore I think it is appropriate that this act was allowed to compete since they will be performing in Vegas.

"Vegas is well known for animal acts such as Siegfried and Roy, and therefore I think it is appropriate that this act was allowed to compete since they will be performing in Vegas." Then they belong in Vegas, not competing against humans for cash on reality TV shows. They are not people no matter how much the rest of us continue to try to anthropomorphize them. Montecore, one of Seigfried & Roy's tigers was considered, by your definition, "talented" until he decided to reward Roy for his expertise and effort by turning him into an appetizer.

The winner of America's Got Talent gets a headline show in Vegas. That's why there are a lot of acrobat, magician and danger acts that get through...as well as animal acts. True, those dogs are not people, but I'm pretty sure the two men that train them and were on stage with them are people.

Jacqueline, nevertheless they're people who are exploiting the dogs for financial gain..
