America’s Got Talent 2017 Premiere: Darci Lynne Wows with Ventriloquist Performance
The premiere of the 2017 America’s Got Talent season aired on Tuesday, May 30 at 8/7 central and we can already tell that this season shouldn’t be one to missed. With the entertaining host Tyra banks, and all-star line up of judges to include Simon Cowell, Mel B, Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum, season 12 might be the best one yet. However, believe it or not, the true reason why this season potentially will be the best one yet might actually be because of a 12-year-old ventriloquist from Oklahoma City.
Darci Lynne walked on the stage with a serious case of nervous giggles, so we didn’t know what to expect from the get go. Cowell immediately asked her why she wanted to enter the show and Lynne apprehensively replied, “Well, it was one of my big dreams, but I would also really like to keep ventriloquism alive because it’s not common, you know?” Cowell wished her a sincere, “good luck” and Lynne began her performance.
The 12-year-old from Oklahoma City swept us, the judges, and the audience right off our feet right as she started her act. Lynne didn’t open her mouth, yet produced beautifully crafted vocals coming from her bunny in crime named Petunia. Together, Lynne and her bunny sang the classic song, “Summertime.”
Not only did Lynne receive incredible praise from both Banks and the judges, but Mel B even gave her the golden buzzer. Signaling that Lynne will automatically be going on to the live shows.
Clearly, this is the very beginning of Lynne’s time on Season 2017 of AGT, seen as though she received the golden buzzer. In our opinion, this is also the very beginning of Lynne’s career as a ventriloquist considering how astoundingly talented she is. Undoubtedly, her dream to keep ventriloquism alive will remain as long as she’s performing on stages with Petunia.
We will keep you updated on more outstanding acts from America’s Got Talent for the rest of the season.
