It’s not often that you see a ventriloquist, much less a twelve-year-old ventriloquist, but that’s what the judges and the country got when Darci Lynne strutted onto the America’s Got Talent stage last night.
Along with her puppet Petunia, she said it was a dream of her’s to appear on the show, because I want to keep ventriloquism alive because its not common, you know?
The judges weren’t sure what to expect, but when she proceeded to belt out “Summertime” from Porgy and Besswith her mouth CLOSED, the judges and audience were blown away.
She got a standing ovation, and ultimately got the golden buzzer from Mel B, sending her straight to the live show.
“You know what? I think your puppet Im guessing is very much like you, charming and adorable,” Mel B said. “You make my heart melt, you were brilliant. Im trying to describe how amazing it was.”
Darci Lynne and Petuniaalso took the time for a little digital exclusive.
You can see her amazing performance here.
Congrats to Darciand Petunia!
