DUSTIN Tavella revealed he was emotionally drained after winning America’s Got Talent and returning home with the million dollar prize.
There won’t be any crazy celebrations in the next few days, as the magician said he was happy to fall asleep after feeling “so tired” from his Season 16 performances.
Tavella told The Sun most of his energy would be spent on finding a new home while his Virginia Beach lease is pending – and that he must decide if he will move to Las Vegas for his new job. .
Tavella will be one of the headliners on the $ 5 million AGT Live show in Sin City, which opens in six weeks.
Smiling wildly, Tavella, 35, said: “Sleep seems like the best party I can have right now. I haven’t had it in a long time. Honestly, I’m so tired.
“Emotionally this process has been so crazy that I am delighted to go lie down in a bed and know my family is close and I can just be happy to know all this time that they have been telling me that they thought I could win.
“I can tell them they were right. I tell them they’ve been crazy for years now, and now that we’re here, it’s crazy.”
He insisted the million dollar prize was a nice addition to his win, but the extra extra of a new Kia car was more alluring.
“I don’t know if I’ll have the car tonight because it would be great to go for a ride in a car where our family fits.”
Tavella, who resides with his wife, Kari, and their adopted sons, Xander and Sylas, admits his main goal is to move.
“Our lease on our apartment is over and we don’t know what we’re going to do. We fly to Virginia Beach, load up a U-Haul, and head over to my parents to find out what we’re going to do.
“It’s so unexpected and crazy. We have a lot to discover. ‘”
One thing is certain for Tavlla is that he will be heading to Las Vegas next month to begin rehearsals for the America’s Got Talent Las Vegas LIVE stage show at the Luxor Hotel and Casino.
He wants his “positive family message” to remain a theme for his future career: “For my Vegas act, I want to make sure I stay true to myself, inspiring and motivating people; magic, the sky is the limit. We can dream as big as possible. I feel humbled and honored to be part of everything. “
Magician Tavella crowned the aerial Aidan Bryant for winning the award for best TV talent with his inspiring performances drawing on stories from his personal life, including his wedding day and his sons’ adoptions.
Her emotionally charged latest act showcased her art of storytelling with the spirit of philanthropy, using magic to spread her message of the power to give.
Tavella says the life-changing television experience set a “fire under my butt” to write a memoir.
Judge and executive producer Simon Cowell said, “I’m so happy for Dustin, this will change his life and the lives of his family. Next step … Vegas!”
Born and raised in Pottstown, Pennsylvania, Tavella grew up attending magic shows with his grandparents in Atlantic City and fell in love with the art of connecting and entertaining people through magic.
With a personal motto of always living a life with purpose, Tavella has worked with many humanitarian organizations helping the homeless, sponsoring youth programs and helping women in crisis.
