New Hartford's Robert Channing advanced during the Spring on NBC's America's Got Talent and now he's the winner?

Actually, Channing was joking on First News with Keeler in the Morning on WIBX when he said, "I actually am the winner!"  Channing was talking about his status on the program, which according to producers, is still active.

"I'm told to sit tight that I'm not officially off.  I really have no idea," he added.

Channing released a new unauthorized video as he 'speed glitter painted' AGT judge Mel B.  Watch the video below.
