Darci Lynne Farmer fans are outraged that this singing ventriloquist lost “America’s Got Talent: The Champions.” We asked viewers of this “AGT” spin-off if they were happy that magician Shin Lim won the show on February 19. A whopping 42% said that Darci Lynne, who claimed the “America’s Got Talent” crown in 2017, was robbed of the win. Only 26% were happy that Shin, who is the reigning “AGT” champ, took this title as well.
What do you think? If you haven’t voted in our poll yet be sure to do so at the bottom of this post. And sound off in the comments section about “AGT: The Champions.” Were you as frustrated as we were that you didn’t get to vote for the winner of this special edition of the show, who was chosen by the superfans?
Of the other 10 acts in the final, only Susan Boyle merited double digit support, with 10% of viewers wanting her to win. Susan may be the most famous alumni of “Britain’s Got Talent” but she didn’t win that show either, placing second to the dance group Diversity in 2009.

Susan was one of the five Golden Buzzer acts in the final, along with two other singers — Angelica Hale and Kechi Okwuchi, daredevils Deadly Games and sand artist Kseniya Simonova. That latter act, finished in third place on the finale but was the top pick of just 3% of viewers.
Shin won the superfans vote in the fifth audition episode to gain his spot in the final. The other four top vote-getters at their auditions were: comedian Preacher Lawson (episode 1); rock opera singer Cristina Ramos (episode 2); opera singer Paul Potts (episode 3); and singer Brian Justin Crum (episode 4).
Although Darci Lynne lost the vote run-off in episode to Cristina, she was named one of the two wild cards as was magician Jon Dorenbos who fell short in episode 3.
