'America's Got Talent' Winner Darci Lynne Farmer: Watch All of Her Performances

The AGT finalist, who was one of the first performances featured in the Season 12 finale, did a vocal trio with Grammy-winning artist Kelly Clarkson and fellow contestant Angelica Hale, and for her, that was enough. Twain then performed a new song, "Life's about to Get Good", from her upcoming album, Now, bowing September 29.

In her audition, with her stuffed bunny Petunia, it was explained that Farmer uses ventriloquism to overcome her shyness.

Mel B, who recently lost her own father, said, "I know you're dad's up there, looking down on you, and he must be so, so proud, because what you just did was lovely".

"Although winning America's Got Talent would be wonderful and life-changing, my primary focus is to spread joy and happiness through laughter and song".

Roy Hodgson has 'faith' in Crystal Palace survival despite struggles
Looking at Palace's squad, they have enough players who will understand that, and they will suit Hodgson's approach quite well. I watched Lemina today and he was like Iniesta but I can't work out if he is that good or if it was because he had no pressure.

Fellow judge Mel B chose Darci as her golden buzzer act earlier in the series, and was similarly gushing with praise, adding: 'You're fantastic. Her Vegas act would certainly be a victor and her ventriloquism skills are on par or above any adult twice her age. Mel B. gave her the coveted Golden Buzzer, which catapulted her straight into the live shows. She and her puppets will walk away with a cool million bucks.

Darci won't be a preteen for much longer - her 13th birthday is October 12, 2017.

The results are in and we now know who has won the latest season of America's Got Talent, one of the most-watched in the show's history.

Rounding out the top three were 10-year-old singer Angelica Hale and dance group Light Balance.

After opening with 62 and 64, a steady if not spectacular round of 68 seemed nearly pedestrian for Leishman. The top five in the FedExCup Playoff standings is the goal for players after the BMW Championship .
