Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. on 'Good Day LA'Newly crowned 'America's Got Talent' winner Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. stopped by 'Good Day LA' (weekdays, 9AM PT on Fox) to talk about winning the $1 million prize. So what's the first big, crazy purchase Murphy is planning? Health insurance. Then, college funds for his three kids.

"This means the world to my family," said Murphy. "I got behind a lot in my life, you know? And this, 'America's Got Talent' gave me the opportunity to make all of those things right again.

Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., as judge Howie Mandel accurately predicted on Tuesday's performance show, won the competition and the show's $1 million prize. "I am the great predictor," Mandel quips.

"I'll take it with me as well," Wonder told AOL TV on the post show press line. "They are a group that is committed to staying together and not letting anyone break them apart. I feel that's how we should be as a nation. I'm excited that they allowed me to be a part of their group."

Piers MorganThere were technical difficulties during the performance finale of 'America's Got Talent.' Some backstage doors wouldn't open, which prevented stage hands from removing PopLyfe's set and setting the stage for the Silhouettes.

Producers filled the air time with a pre-taped video segment featuring past auditions while things were corrected. By the time they were, the video segment showing insight into the Silhouettes had to be cut for time.
