“America’s Got Talent” crowned its 12th winner this summer, with 12-year-old ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer being named the ultimate champion. (See list of “AGT” winners.) For all those fans who couldn’t make it out to see the talented tyke in person at her Las Vegas show, have no fear: she’s returning to TV! Monday night on NBC, Farmer joins a cappella group Pentatonix on their holiday special, “A Very Pentatonix Christmas.” That’s when Farmer and her rabbit puppet Petunia will perform a brand new holiday song, titled “O Easter Egg” and sung to the tune of “O Christmas Tree” (watch above).
When Pentatonix group members Kevin Olusola, Mitch Grassi, Kirstin Maldonado and Scott Hoying try to correct Petunia’s version of the song, she declares, “I’m a rabbit, I definitely mean ‘O Easter Egg.'” Farmer then declares, “Sorry, she doesn’t know much about human holidays, but I’m pretty sure we can get this one right.”
Farmer and Petunia’s lyrics are silly and fun — “O Easter Egg, O Easter Egg, your shell is dyed so brightly; O Easter Egg, O Easter Egg, you smell rotten slightly” — and we’re betting youngsters everywhere will soon be singing them around the dinner table. What do YOU think of Darci Lynne Farmer’s latest performance?
Other special guests for this year’s “A Very Pentatonix Christmas” include Jennifer Hudson, Brett Eldredge and Jay Leno. This is the second year of the holiday special, with last year’s inaugural guests being Reba McEntire, Dolly Parton and Kelly Clarkson. Pentatonix got their start on Season 3 of NBC’s “The Sing-Off,” where they won the grand prize.
