Its to hard to impress the judges on America’s Got Talent, but when 12-year-old Darci Lynne from Oklahoma City came onto the stage with a pink-haired floppy-eared rabbit called Petunia recently, she made the entire audience speechless, and she did it without even opening her mouth.
A twelve-year-old ventriloquist
It’s very rare 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 entered onto the America’s Got Talent stage.
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 it’s not common, you know?”
Darci is a ventriloquist, and Petunia is her puppet, they both managed to pull off one of the most incredible renditions of “Summertime” from Porgy And Bess that anybody has ever heard.
The judges and audience were blown away.
The judges wasn’t sure what to expect, but when she proceeded to belt out “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess with 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.
Darci Lynne and Petunia also took the time for a little digital exclusive.
