An unemployed chicken farmer from Kentucky conquered the competition this season on America's Got Talent.
Kevin Skinner won the latest edition of the NBC talent competition last night, earning a $1 million grand prize and a headlining slot in a Las Vegas show next month.
Skinner defeated Barbara Padilla, an opera singer from Houston, and eight other finalists on the finale. Said an emotional Skinner:
"I've always loved to perform. I want to go out there, and give 'em the best show I can."
The country singer is set headline an America's Got Talent show at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino, hosted by Jerry Springer, in October.
