Nick Cannon left America's Got Talent early in 2017 after a much-publicized fallout with NBC.

Cannon served as the host of NBC's America's Got Talent from 2009 to 2016 but did not return for 2017.

Who won America's Got Talent last year?

Brandon Leake was the first spoken-word poet on the talent competition and went on to become the first spoken-word poet to win the show.

The Stockton, California, native, proved he was a top contender from the beginning when he earned a Golden Buzzer during his audition from Howie Mandel.

Leake continued to wow the judges getting especially kind remarks from Mandel.

After his quarterfinals performance Mandel commented, "I've never been more moved in my life on this show by any other act. We need you on this show. We need in this world… You matter."

The 27-year-old walked away with the $1 million prize, a brand new Kia Stinger, and the chance to headline a show for AGT in Las Vegas.

Reflecting on his win Leake said, "This is a huge win for the spoken-word community. For an art form that has not been on the main stream ever to have a chance to win 'America's Got Talent' is bigger than anything."

"I am going to show the world what a spoken-word poet can do."
