History was made on Citytv’s Breakfast Television this morning as singing trio CZN was announced the winner of Canadian Family’s Got Talent.

The competition came to a stunning finale as Simon Cowell of America’s Got Talent infamy awarded the Toronto, Ontario trio with the award Tuesday morning.

Simon had some complimentary words to say to the group.  “I have to tell you, what you did – I think you’re very current, I think you’re very cool, I think you’re very likeable. Most importantly talented, creative, inventive – and I can’t wait to meet you in person”

The reaction: priceless.

“We’re so grateful. There’s so many talented people in this competition. So for Simon to crown us the winner is incredible,” said Matthew Novary Joseph as his teammates jumped and fist-pumped in the background. “To have someone like him say that, and invite us to do that, is astounding. We’re so happy. The next step is to make music. And that’s freeing, to be able to be given that vote of confidence.”

CZN consists of CJ Capital, Seth Zosky, and Matthew Novary Joseph. Their sound features a unique blend of RnB, Rap and Pop with catchy hooks and harmonies. The group has released 5 singles to date with their song titled ‘TIMEZONE‘ hitting over 25,000 streams.

Remarkably, this award was further sweetened by an announcement by Cowell himself, stating that the winner of this competition would automatically claim a spot on America’s Got Talent’s next season.

“I could make a case that every one of those three could be the winner. In the end I went with my gut, but that’s not to say anyone here has walked away as a loser,”  Cowell said.

“Congratulations. You’ve all done great. I loved all three acts. Canada DOES have talent.”

The month-long contest on the expanded national hour of Breakfast Television included thousands of entries from across the country, with more than 30,000 votes from Canadians online.

Season 15 of America’s Got Talent premieres tonight on Citytv.
