Ventriloquist, Darci Lynne Farmer, 12, is the newest winner of America’s Got Talent. The incredibly skilled little girl won over America’s hearts with her act, which features an incredibly cute rabbit named Petunia as well.
Of her thrilling win, Farmer told People, “My journey was so fantastic. Everyone here is so kind and so amazing and everybody here helped me win.”
Both finalists this year were pre-teens. Standing beside Farmer when she won was 10-year-old singer Angelica Hale. Appearing on the show together, both girls quickly became friends and each other’s biggest supporters. There’s little doubt that both have wild success in their futures.
“It means so much to me that she’s supporting me all the way,” Farmer said. “It was so, so hard to be up there with her, especially since we’ve become so close. I mean, we were just crying on each other and it was just so much fun. The contestants, everyone here, they’ve been so nice to me. All of them had predicted that I would win. I would get so mad at them for doing that, but I guess their predictions were right!”
As for what is next for her favorite ventriloquist dummy? Farmer admitted, “Petunia is so excited, but she’s so exhausted. She demanded a nap.”
