Surprising no one, child ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer easily sailed through to the next round on “America’s Got Talent” 2017 during this week’s live episode. The Oklahoma City, OK native is currently Gold Derby’s frontrunner to win Season 12, according to our readers. Do YOU think Farmer deserves to win “AGT,” or is she completely overrated? Vote in our poll below.
The most captivating thing about 12-year-old Farmer is that she doesn’t just tell jokes and she doesn’t just sing, but she does it all while ALSO performing her ventriloquism routine. If Farmer wins, she’ll be the third ventriloquist to prevail following Terry Fator and Paul Zerdin. The other nine “AGT” winners have a vast array of talents, including singers Bianca Ryan, Neal E. Boyd, Kevin Skinner, Michael Grimm, Landau Eugene Murphy Jr. and Grace VanderWaal, dog trick team Olate Dogs, experimental dancer Kenichi Ebina, and magician Mat Franco.

For her first performance back in the auditions, Farmer sang “Summertime” with her cute rabbit puppet Petunia. She wowed the judges so much during her debut that Mel B hit her Golden Buzzer. Farmer was next seen in this week’s live Quarterfinals round where she sang “Who’s Lovin’ You” with her new mouse puppet Oscar. Of note, she received a standing ovation from the judges and audience before she even finished her performance.
