Darci Lynne Farmer is a ventriloquist, comedian, and singer from Oklahoma City. She is the winner of this year's Season 12 NBC competition show America's Got Talent.
Lynne is one of the youngest contestants ever to win America's Got Talent, garnering over 21 million views on AGT's YouTube channel and the most votes for a final performance in the history of the show. She won the hearts of America with her sweetheart disposition and undeniable talent. She kicked off her 2018 national tour with her friends Petunia, the diva-esque rabbit; Oscar, the shy and soulful mouse; and Edna, the brash old woman.
Growing up in Oklahoma, Lynne has always been close to her family and relies on their support and encouragement. In her younger years, Lynne participated in talent-based pageants to overcome her shyness. She was soon introduced to the art of ventriloquism and decided to try it out for herself. Her hard work, grit, and discipline developed from her early days of gymnastics, where she practiced 30 hours a week. After only having her first puppet for two weeks, Lynne began performing in talent shows in her home state and beyond. She was determined to audition for her first talent show, ultimately leading her to audition for the biggest talent show on television.
The stage is now a platform where Darci can open up and display her incredible talents for the world to see. Her polished, impeccable skill as a ventriloquist at such a young age is jaw-dropping and sure to inspire the next generation to keep the craft alive, but when she sings, her voice leaves her audiences breathless.
Recently, Lynne was invited to sing the National Anthem at the OKC Energy FC Soccer game where AGT fans heard her sing without a puppet. She then went on to open for Fergie at Caesar's Palace on New Year's Eve.
Darci has also been seen on Little Big Shots, Ellen, and the Today Show.
