America’s Got Talent announced the Season 8 winner on Wednesday. Watch the moment the amazing dancer Kenichi Ebina was crowned the winner:

If you haven’t kept up with the show, Season 8 winner, Kenichi Ebina, is a martial artist slash dancer whose flexibility and controlled moves have wowed the judges (and America) since his first audition.

“Oh my god, I don’t know what I can say, but it’s amazing,” Ebina said immediately following the announcement.

“First of all, I want to thank my wife and daughter for being supportive all the way through; my mom, brother and sister; and all my friends. Crazy.”

The self-taught dancer was born in Tokyo in 1974 but has spent many years living in the United States. Check out one of his jaw-dropping performances:

While that performance left us speechless, Heidi Klum’s outfit for the finale also left us lost for words — for a totally different reason.

We’re used to seeing her in form-fitted clothing, so we were surprised to see her in a more casual loose dress for the America’s Got Talent finale.

Heidi took a look straight from the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and wore it for the event.

She channeled her wild side in a head-to-toe tribal look from Donna Karan’s Spring 2014 line. We’re not crazy about her ensemble this time, are you?

She accessorized with Ofira yellow-gold hoop earrings and bangles from Lorraine Schwartz and Ofira.

Even her shoes (which also shared the same tribal print) were from last week’s Donna Karan Spring 2014 runway show. What do you think of her matching tribal dress and shoes?
