“America’s Got Talent” just kicked off season 13. Do you have an early favorite to win? After all, by this point in season 12 we’d already seen the eventual “AGT” champ: Darci Lynne Farmer, a 12-year-old ventriloquist who wowed Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Mel B with her winsome ways. Indeed, Mel B pressed the Golden Buzzer sending her straight through to the live shows.
Farmer went on to become the third ventriloquist to win “America’s Got Talent” following Terry Fator and Paul Zerdin who prevailed in seasons two and 10 respectively. The 2016 winner, Grace VanderWaal, was another 12-year-old who sang.
Do you think one of those four is the best of the first 12 seasons of “America’s Got Talent”? There have also been a slew of singers, a dancer (Kenichi Ebina), a magician (Mat Franco) and even an animal act (Olate Dogs).
