Darci Lynne Farmer may regret being the “America’s Got Talent” frontrunner from the very start of the season. With just hours left before she performs in the “AGT” final on Sept. 18, this singing ventriloquist has seen her lead over another talented tyke, Angelica Hale, evaporate. Indeed, Hale, a little girl with a big voice, now has the edge to win. However, Farmer still has a chance according to our exclusive odds as Hale’s margin of victory is predicted to be a very small one.
Farmer and Hale have not faced off since against each other since the first quarterfinal on Aug. 15. They appeared on separate semifinals. Farmer was the stand-out act on the first semifinal on Sept. 5 while Hale stole the show on the Sept. 12 second semifinal.
Are you on Team Farmer or Team Hale? Or do you prefer one of the other eight finalists? Who do you think will be named season 12 “AGT” champ on Wednesday (Sept. 20) and win the $1 million grand prize and a chance to perform at a Las Vegas casino?
