‘America’s Got Talent’ 2017: Child ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer teases new puppet for ‘AGT’ live shows

When child ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer performs live next Tuesday on “America’s Got Talent” 2017, she’ll be bringing a new puppet along with her. “Since I got the Golden Buzzer, I really wanted to step up my game and have something new and fresh,” Farmer said in Wednesday’s “Road to the Finals” episode of NBC’s reality TV show. “I do have a new puppet that I got that I’m going to show everyone in the live shows. I’m super excited.”

“I never imagined that I would ever get the Golden Buzzer,” Farmer reflected in the special recap episode. “It was like, wait, what just happened?” Mel B was the judge who anointed Farmer with her Golden Buzzer, and she’s understandably quite proud of her decision, declaring, “I think I’m gonna have a winner on my hands, yeah.”

Farmer is one of a dozen acts who will be featured in the first live show of the season, airing Tuesday, August 15 from the Dolby Theatre. The other acts are Angelica Hale (singer), Artyon & Paige (dancing duo), Billy & Emily England (extreme rollerblading duo), Christian Guardino (singer), In the Stairwell (a cappella group), Just Jerk (hip-hop dance group), Preacher Lawson (comedian), Puddles Pity Party (singing clown), The Singing Trump (comedy & singing) and Yoli Mayor (singer). The 12th act is a wild card that’ll be announced live on the show.
