Each season, the performers on 'America's Got Talent' are so varied, it's hard to tell who will walk away the million-dollar winner -- and season 4 is no exception. With 10 finalists left going into Wednesday night's finale, it's anyone's game. Will America choose based solely on talent, or will personality and personal hardships prevail?

Here's a quick look at the finalists and what their odds are:Each season, the performers on 'America's Got Talent' are so varied, it's hard to tell who will walk away the million-dollar winner -- and season 4 is no exception. With 10 finalists left going into Wednesday night's finale, it's anyone's game. Will America choose based solely on talent, or will personality and personal hardships prevail?

Here's a quick look at the finalists and what their odds are:

Hairo Torres
A passionate breakdancer, Torres has squeaked by with his emotional performances that have him contorting in sometimes previously unimaginable ways. But his final dance was met with lukewarm responses from the judges.
Odds of winning: Low -- he's good, but probably not good enough.


Drew Stevyns

Stevyns is a singer-songwriter who's been playing various instruments since he was little. While he may not stand out as a frontrunner, he has slowly and steadily wound his way to the finals.
Odds of winning: Low -- while good, he just doesn't scream "frontrunner" when more than half the competitors are actual singers.


Lawrence Beaman

With his booming Barry White-style baritone voice and killer smile, Beaman's soulful singing and humble attitude, the soulful Beaman has sailed through to the finals.
Odds of winning: Medium-low -- he's talented, attractive and likable, but he just might fall through the cracks.



Fab Five
Made up of five sisters who grew up on a dairy farm, the Fab Five are power tap-dancers who have used their unique talent to ride out life's bumps. Their synchronized style and girl-next-door attitude go a long way.
Odds of winning: Medium-high -- their mesmerizing final performance to Britney Spears' 'Circus' should give them a boost with the voters.


The Texas Tenors
This trio of crooners from -- you guessed it, Texas -- has become the show's guiltiest pleasure, with their irresistible combo of cowboy hats, boots and harmonies.
Odds of winning: Medium-high -- as we all know, don't mess with Texas ... and don't count these guys out just yet.


Grandma Lee
The 75-year-old's comedic timing has made her a fan favorite since the get-go. Grandma Lee is the perfect mix of saucy and sweet that seems to have everybody rooting for her.
Odds of winning: High -- she's entertaining, plus who can resist giving a little old lady her lifelong dream of hitting the big time?


Kevin Skinner
Since day one, 'AGT' has been trying to label country singer Skinner as a Susan Boyle for the U.S. set, trumpeting that underneath his frumpy chicken farmer appearance lies a hidden musical gem.
Odds of winning: High -- he's the show's everyman who just so happens to be able to sing.


Barbara Padilla
The opera singer who almost wasn't, Padilla was diagnosed with cancer that threatened her voice. Now in remission, she's hit all the right notes with the judges and viewers.
Odds of winning: High -- she's got the voice and the sob story, but her downfall could be that an opera singer won last season.


The Voices of Glory
The three siblings who helped coax their mother out of a coma using only their voices have talent and the sob story of the year on their side. Week after week, everyone eats them up.
Odds of winning: High -- they've got the whole package.


Recycled Percussion
This unique band is made up of musicians who make beats with anything they can get their hands on -- buckets, trash cans, utensil, you name it. Their take on the Beach Boys' 'Wipeout' on Monday night's finals blew the place away.
Odds of winning: High -- the judges gush and the audience eats up their act, which very well could leave them the ones to beat.
