Even after her shocking elimination from “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” Darci Lynne Farmer kept smiling. In her post-show interview, this singing ventriloquist thanks the judges for the compliments and her puppet pal Oscar the Mouse chimes in with his special message for Mel B.
Remember, it was this one-time Spice Girl that discovered Darci Lynne back in 2017. She gave this Oklahoma girl the Golden Buzzer that sent her straight through to the live shows. She ended up winning season 12 of “AGT” and, as Darci Lynne explains in the video above, her life has been a rollercoaster ever since.
One of the dips was, no doubt, her loss to rock opera singer Cristina Ramos on episode two of this spin-off show. That 2016 winner of “Spain’s Got Talent” wowed the crowd with her over-the-top rendition of the Queen classic “Bohemian Rhapsody.” She earned won more votes from the superfans and moved on to the final.
But fans of Darci Lynn shouldn’t give up hope that this is the last we’ve seen of her on this series. She could well be chosen by the judges as one of the two wild cards in the final. Certainly if Mel B has anything to do with it, that is a a real possibility.
Darci Lynne and Oscar opened the show on Monday January 14 with a rocking medley of the Tina Turner classics “Nutbush City Limits” and “Proud Mary.” When they were finished, the four judges leapt to their feet. Simon Cowell said he was “literally blown away” while Heidi Klum called Darci Lynne “one of the most unique” acts they’ve ever had.” Howie Mandel echoed that sentiment and praised her for being “a seasoned professional” while Mel B readily admitted that she had “seasoned professional.”
