LOS ANGELES, Oct. 2 (UPI) -- Opera-singing insurance salesman Neil E. Boyd has won the top prize on "America's Got Talent."

Boyd won $1 million and the opportunity to perform in Las Vegas.

"What has happened to my life?" E! News quoted Boyd as saying upon learning he won the television talent competition series.

David Hasselhoff, Sharon Osbourne and Piers Morgan were the program's celebrity judges, while Jerry Springer served as host.
