Taylor Williamson finishes runner-up on America’s Got Talent 2013, goes Inside The Actor’s Studio live with James Lipton

For the second straight year, a stand-up comedian has finished second on America’s Got Talent.

Taylor Williamson didn’t think he would win, jokingly or not, and his prediction proved true last night live on NBC, as dancer Kenichi Ebina won the $1 million prize and headlining show in Las Vegas (along with the official AGT tour which begins next weekend).

Don’t feel too bad for Williamson, though.

As he posted this photo afterward, judge Heidi Klum — whom he flirted with on live TV for several weeks — gave him a congratulatory kiss. “So it turns out 2nd place isn’t that bad 🙂 #heidiklumisataylord #agt”

During the live finale, Williamson also got James Lipton to sit down with him for a special edition of the Q&A that’s part of Lipton’s Inside The Actors Studio for sister cable network Bravo.

Bravo, Williamson. Bravo.
