12-Year-Old Girl Goes On "America's Got Talent" and Absolutely Crushes It

Darci Lynne Farmer is a 12-year-old from Oklahoma City. She first discovered ventriloquism at church and decided she wanted to pursue it as a hobby. Her parents surprised her with a puppet on her 10th birthday to help her overcome her shyness. And my goodness was that a great move.

Farmer appeared on America's Got Talent with her rabbit puppet, Petunia. She explained she wanted to keep ventriloquism alive because it's "not very common." To the awe of the audience and the judges, Farmer and Petunia performed "Summertime" by George Gershwin. It was so impressive that Mel B used her "Golden Buzzer," which is apparently a free ticket to the final live show that each judge can only use once each season.

I have honestly never seen someone sing while controlling a puppet or dummy. This is incredible. Watch it and enjoy.
