Singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer competed
in the finals on NBC’s "America’s Got Talent."
And she won
The Oklahoma City 12-year-old was one of five
contenders to earn a spot in the Season 12 finals on Wednesday night’s
episode of the popular TV talent contest.
Holding her grumpy grandma puppet Edna Doorknocker,
the Deer Creek Middle Schooler closed her eyes and took a deep, shaky
breath as host Tyra Banks revealed that Darci was among the finalists.
"Thank you so much. Thank you, America, for voting
for me. This means so much to me. Thank you," the wide-eyed girl said
from the stage
The Oklahoma native has been a favorite on the
summer TV talent show since she and her rabbit puppet Petunia
delivered a stunning rendition of George Gershwin’s "Summertime" on
the May 30 season premiere episode. Former Spice Girl Mel B., one of
the show’s four judges, opted to hit her Golden Buzzer, allowing Darci
to surpass the rest of the competition and advance straight to the
"Just revel in this moment ‘cause it’s all yours,"
Mel B. advised Darci after the girl was announced as a finalist. "I’ve
got a sneaky feeling you’re gonna win this. I really do believe that.
I really do. Keep doing what you’re doing. America loves you, and I
love you. You are absolutely incredible. You really are. Enjoy this.
You deserve it."
On the Aug. 15 quarterfinals episode, Darci again
showcased her skills as both a ventriloquist and vocalist with a new
puppet, an adorably awkward mouse named Oscar with whom she dedicated
to Mel B. a soulful rendition of The Jackson 5’s "Who’s Lovin’ You."
On Tuesday’s semifinal show, the seventh-grader and
her sassy senior citizen character Edna Doorknocker serenaded
curmudgeonly judge Simon Cowell with a heartfelt cover of the Aretha
Franklin classic "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman," earning a
standing ovation from the studio audience by the first chorus. Through
the puppet, the ventriloquist told Banks on Wednesday night that she
didn’t know yet if she would bring back Edna or a different character
in the finals.
The host said the 11 semifinalists who performed on Tuesday’s show
garnered the highest number of votes in "America’s Got Talent"
history. Along with Darci, the other finalists revealed on Wednesday
night were comedian Preacher Lawson, dog act Sara and Hero, singer and
pianist Evie Clair and singer-songwriter Chase Goehring.
