Darci Lynne, the 12-year-old singing ventriloquist who has captured the heart of America, performed the song “With a Little Help From My Friends.” The video clip has gone viral and has garnered more than 3 million YouTube views in less than 24 hours. What makes Darci Lynne’s finale act noteworthy is she didn’t sing with just one puppet but two.
If you’ve followed Darci’s act you’ll know that she performs with Oscar and Petunia. In the video below, you can watch as both Oscar and Petunia sing the classic Beatles tune.
The America’s Got Talent finale takes place on Wednesday night at 8 p.m. but many people think that Darci Lynne has this win up her sleeve.
Should Darci Lynne win America’s Got Talent, she will win one million dollars and a Las Vegas gig, which would be an incredible opportunity for the pre-teen. Her Vegas act would certainly be a winner and her ventriloquism skills are on par or above any adult twice her age.
Darci Lynne isn’t just a talented ventriloquist, and if the ability to sing in various voices while your mouth is barely open wasn’t impressive enough, she’s also very humorous.
In Darci’s routines, she usually has her puppets behaving in such a manner that you can’t help but laugh. She’s continually worked the judges into her act and often has the puppets play fighting. In the finals, Oscar and Petunia had a tiff over who would sing.
Oscar was unaware that he was actually live on TV, but the two worked through their differences and sang their duet.
Simon Cowell, who is a hard judge to win over, is apparently won over by Darci Lynne and her adorable puppets. Not only did he join the other judges in giving Darci a standing ovation, but he also stated he thinks she will win the competition.
Simon isn’t alone. There are many people who have shared messages of support and well wishes to Darci as they predict she will be the winner.
Mel B had used her Golden Buzzer for Darci Lynne and there is no question she is a favorite of the judges and the audience to win.
