America's Got Talent: The Champions declared a winner tonight, naming magician Shin Lim the champion of all the Got Talent champions.
Lim also won season 13 of America's Got Talent, and while he may claim to be an ordinary human skilled at close up magic, you cannot convince us he's not an actual wizard. He makes cards disappear into a cloud of smoke and reappear inside Howie Mandel's water bottle. That's not possible without actual magic! It's just not!
Whatever the underlying cause, last year’s extreme warmth in the West meant that Alaska, Arizona, California and Nevada all set temperature records. Some parts of California essentially had no winter last year, with temperatures sometimes running 10 to 15 degrees above normal for the season. The temperature in Anchorage, Alaska’s largest city, never fell below zero in 2014, the first time that has happened in 101 years of record-keeping for the city.
"The rate of college students who have had sexual experiences using condoms is less than 40 percent," said Han Mengjie, director of Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

The winner will be announced in March, and is expected to have a significant impact on the direction of the consultancy. Some insiders favour candidates with expertise in fast-growing areas such as data analytics, whereas others want a traditionalist who will protect the firm’s brand.
Financial advisors and asset allocators who had been hoping to see some benefit this year from tactical strategies were also not spared the punishment of a capricious market. Of the top three tactical strategies in the country (Mainstay Marketfield, Good Harbor U.S. Tactical Core, F-Squared Premium AlphaSector Index), two had nearly imploded with double-digit losses while the third found itself under SEC investigation for misleading the public about its historical returns. The other giant tactical manager, Schwab’s $9 billion Windhaven Diversified Growth product, looks to end 2014 with a return close to zero. So much for tactics.
AGT returns later this year with a regular season 14, but the show will look just a little bit different.
Terry Crews, who hosted The Champions, will take over hosting duties from Tyra Banks while Gabrielle Union and Julianne Hough join the judging panel, replacing Heidi Klum and Mel B. Howie Mandel and Simon Cowell will return.
America's Got Talent: The Champions aired on NBC.
E! and NBC are both part of the NBC Universal family.
