Darci Lynne (born October 12, 2004 in Oklahoma City, OK) is a ventriloquist and a finalist on Season 12 of America’s Got Talent. She absolutely wowed judge Mel B during her audition round, where she introduced her puppet Petunia, singing George Gershwin‘s “Summertime.” Mel used her Golden Buzzer on Darci and sent her straight to the live shows. In the quarterfinals, with the help of her puppet Oscar, Darci sang The Jackson 5’s “Who’s Lovin’ You” and received a standing ovation from the judges. She received enough votes to go ahead to the next round of the competition, where she sang Aretha Franklin‘s “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” and flirted with judge Simon Cowell through her puppet Edna Doorknocker. This performance sent her through to the finals, where she competed against 9 other acts for the winning title! In the largest vote in history of AGT, Darci was crowned the Season 12 winner!
