Child ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer performed Tuesday night during the Finals episode of “America’s Got Talent” 2017. As one of the Top 10 “AGT” acts of Season 12, Farmer has consistently been one of the strongest performers. Did the 12-year-old continue wowing the judges and America with her final appearance, in which she sang with TWO puppets? Watch Farmer’s “America’s Got Talent” recap video above from NBC’s reality TV show.
All four “AGT” judges — Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel — jumped to their feet at the conclusion of her performance. Mel B was particularly excited, as she is Farmer’s Golden Buzzer mentor. Here is what they had to say:
Mel B: “You are just hands-down incredible, incredible, incredible. I mean, you’re 12 years old, right? You’re self-taught, you were so shy and look at you now, and I’ve said this from the very beginning, hence you’re my Golden Buzzer, you could win this, but everyone has to vote for her. They all have to vote for her right now. You are just, you’re so poised, and I still don’t know how you do it ‘cause I try and watch for your mouth moving and you are that professional. You’re amazing. Oh my god, I’m running out of breath. You’re amazing, absolutely amazing.”
Klum: “You are amazing and it has been amazing watching you all season, and you just have that special something that not everyone has, and you might have just won yourself $1 million right there.”
Cowell: “Look, we are being very complimentary tonight but for all the right reasons, because America has got it right, we’ve got the right 10 people here. Everyone has raised their game. This is what I think about you, Darci, when you can appeal to all ages with what you’ve done, but this is what I believe. The best part of doing this job is when you are there and you can say, ‘I was there at the beginning of someone’s career and I witnessed a star.’ Tonight, again, I’ve just witnessed a star emerge because that’s what you are. You are special, incredible, funny, talented. I think you’re gonna win.”
Mandel: “I think that everybody’s right. I think, and if you look previously coming into this, you’re the most popular person on this show, on the internet, so people gotta vote, and you remind me of every reason why I got into this business. I just watched ‘The Ed Sullivan Show,’ that’s where I first found the Beatles. I used to see Topo Gigio, puppets, kids and everything, and all that is in one act, and it’s Darci Lynne. So you delivered!”
