“America’s Got Talent” fans were in awe this past season as singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer was able to sing better with her mouth closed than most of us can sing, period. This was especially seen during the show’s finale, as she joined famed ventriloquist Terry Fator on the song “Anything You Can Do (I Can Do Better).” Terry won the reality competition show 10 years prior, and according to “Billboard,” his life mission was to “influence the next generation.”
But recently, fans realized that Darci, the “AGT” season 12 winner, can still sing without a puppet in her hand when they caught a listen to her amazing voice.
The performance occurred on Oct. 15, when the 12-year-old Oklahoma native had the chance to sing the national anthem at Taft Stadium for the Energy FC vs Seattle Sounders FC 2 soccer game.
While the performance showcased her amazing voice, it was a bit jarring to see her without her trusty characters by her side. Yet, it further cemented in everyone’s minds what a talent she is at such a young age.
While Darci Lynne is extremely gifted, she is equally as adorable. She even took to Twitter after her performance to thank Energy FC, Oklahoma City’s men’s soccer team, “for such a fun night.”
After 52 million votes were cast during the Sept. 20 “AGT” finale, she ended up being the second ventriloquist to win the show and ultimately took home $1 million for her big win.
Shortly after her win she said, “It means so much to me that America voted for me and I get to see all of my friends and family supporting me and crying with me. It just made me feel so overcome with joy. And tears. Lots of tears.”
Rare Country previously reported what Darci Lynne expected to do with her winnings. “First, I am definitely going to give some money to my mission program at church,” she said. “Then I have to get my mom a dishwasher.” Then, just to remind us she is still a young girl, Darci added that she was going to get a pug dog … if her mom and dad let her.
As an additional part of her winning “AGT,” Darci Lynne received a headlining show in Las Vegas in early November, and ended up selling out all four nights she was at the Planet Hollywood Showroom. We can’t wait to see what Darci Lynne does next.
