  • It is also the first final since Season 13 that the majority of the top 10 acts did not involve singing.
  • Both of the top 2 acts had their auditions air in the season premiere. It previously happened in Season 13 (Shin Lim and Zurcaroh).
  • The top 10 consisted of 5 Golden Buzzer acts (excluding Nightbirde's withdrawal, all of which survived every phase of competition) and 5 non-Golden Buzzer acts.
  • It is the first final to have a solo female magician.
  • It is the first final to feature 2 magicians in the top 5 since Season 11.
  • It was the first time a quick-change artist made the final since Season 1.
  • It was the second consecutive final where the highest-placing act relying on the Instant Save finished in 5th place.
  • The vote between the final 2 was the closest in AGT history, even closer than Grace VanderWaal and The Clairvoyants in Season 11.
