Chicken farmer wins $1M on TV’s ‘Talent’

Kevin Skinner, a Kentucky chicken farmer and aspiring country music star, won $1 million on Wednesday's finale of America's Got Talent.

Skinner earned the chance to headline an America's Got Talent show at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas next month, as well.

Wednesday's finale also featured a performance of the Rolling Stones's hit Wild Horses by Britain's Got Talent star and Internet sensation Susan Boyle in her U.S. television singing debut.

The BBC said the Scottish singer was greeted by more than 1,000 fans when she arrived at a Los Angeles airport before the show.

Boyle's debut album I Dreamed a Dream is set for release in November.
