'America's Got Talent' winner Darci Lynne Farmer
adds fourth Oklahoma City homecoming show
A fourth show has been added to Darci Lynne Farmer's homecoming stand later this month at The Criterion, 500 E Sheridan Ave.
The 2017 "America's Got Talent" winner will perform the fourth show at 7 p.m. Dec. 17 at the Bricktown theater.
As previously reported, the Oklahoma City-based singing-ventriloquist was initially booked for one show at The Criterion, but the slate was expanded to the demand for tickets from her hometown fans. The fourth show was added after the three previously announced dates - Saturday afternoon and evening performances on Dec. 16 and a Sunday matinee on Dec. 17 - all sold out.
Tickets to the fourth show will go on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday via Ticketmaster.com or by phone at (800) 745-3000.
iHeartMEDIA is presenting the “Darci Lynne Homecoming Show," according to a news release, with local radio station KJ103’s morning show personalities TJ, Janet and JRod hosting.
Fellow "America's Got Talent" alumni Pelican212, a family band from Pensacola, Florida, will be special guest for Darci Lynne's homecoming stand.
As previously reported, Darci Lynne, who recently turned 13, emerged as a front-runner on Season 12 of "America's Got Talent" from the premiere episode, consistently wowing the judging panel, the television audience and seemingly the entire Internet with her big-voiced performances featuring her puppet pals. The Oklahoma native performs with an array of puppets, including Petunia the bunny diva, Oscar the awkward mouse and sassy senior citizen Edna Doorknocker.
Darci won the highly rated NBC talent contest on Sept. 20, earning the $1 million grand prize and a Las Vegas headlining opportunity. She performed her promised Vegas headlining stint last weekend at the PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino, where her original two-night stand was expanded to four due to demand.
The reigning "AGT" champion has made a couple of high-profile hometown appearances since winning the nationally televised competition, performing the national anthem before an OKC Energy FC soccer game and playing the halftime show for the OKC Thunder's season opener vs. the New York Knicks.
But her Criterion concerts will be her first standalone public performances in Oklahoma City since she won "AGT." As previously reported, the OKC shows also will precede her recently announced first theater tour in January and February.

oters in Beaver County who want to have absentee ballots mailed to them for the December 12 Special Republican Primary Election for Senate Seat 27 should apply now, County Election Board Secretary Christi Lansden said today. Although the County Election Board can accept applications for absentee ballots until 5 p.m. on Wednesday, December 6, voters who want to vote by absentee ballot are urged to apply early.
Absentee ballot application forms are available at the County Election Board office located at 111 West 2nd Street, Beaver. An online version of the form can be filled out and submitted electronically at: www.elections.ok.gov. A print form can also be downloaded at that address.
Ballots must be in the hands of County Election Board officials by 7 p.m. on Election Day to be counted.
Any registered voter may vote by absentee ballot in any election in which he/she is eligible to vote. However, a voter must be registered and reside at an address within the geographical boundaries of a school district or a municipality to be eligible to vote in school district or municipal elections. It is not necessary to give a reason for voting absentee.
By stating one of the following reasons on their applications, absentee voters can activate special conditions that make it easier for them to use absentee ballots. The reasons are:
• Voters who are physically incapacitated and voters who care for physically incapacitated persons who cannot be left unattended may vote absentee. They may apply only by mail, by fax, by email, online or via an agent who is at least 16 years of age and who is not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity or affinity to any person whose name appears on the ballot.
• Voters who are confined to nursing homes in the county may vote absentee. An Absentee Voting Board actually goes to the nursing home a few days before the election, sets up a small polling place and allows these persons to vote under circumstances similar to those at a regular precinct polling place. They may apply only by mail, by fax, by email, online or via an agent who is at least 16 years of age and who is not employed by or related within the third degree of consanguinity or affinity to any person whose name appears on the ballot..

Darci Lynne Farmer’s life changed when she won the 12th season of America’s Got Talent in September. Soon, fans will get to see the singing ventriloquist’s act live, as she has signed with United Talent Agency.
It’s easy to see why UTA wanted to add Farmer to their roster: The 13-year-old Oklahoma native’s finale performance garnered the most views and votes in the history of America’s Got Talent and her first official performance date -- Dec. 16 at the Criterion in Oklahoma City -- sold out in just six minutes. The venue promptly added two extra shows.
Farmer’s already established her status as a hometown hero, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. UTA already has plans for a television series, record deal and national tour.
LAS VEGAS -- Oklahoma native Darci Lynne Farmer made her Vegas debut last weekend.

She performed for sold out crowds night after night in Vegas.
"It was awesome," Darci said about her opening night performance. "I was like on top of the world. It was fun."
News 4 joined up with the Farmer family on the Vegas strip to talk life, family and fame.
"It is fun being out here in Vegas. It's kind of like getting away from it all. But, I still miss everything back in Oklahoma," Darci said.
Oklahoma is never far from her mind. News 4 Monday night at 10 p.m. for an all-access backstage pass to Darci's show.
America`s tiny talent busts out a few surprises for her fans who lined up inside Planet Hollywood to catch a glimpse of the ventriloquism sensation from Oklahoma City.

25th Annual Elder Fair Was a Hit
"Rolling Out the Red Carpet for Seniors" was the appro-priate theme for Celebrating 25 years of support for Sen-iors and Caregivers. This year’s Elder Fair was a true show stopper. Informational Booths, Body Renew Exer-cises, a Fabulous Meal, Door prizes, and Special Awards to Champions of Seniors were some of the highlights of the day. Katelynn Draper and Jerome Thomas provided outstanding entertainment and Emcee Donnie Jenkins kept the program flowing flawlessly!
