Oklahoman Wins America's Got Talent

Oklahoman Wins America's Got Talent

"I'm so glad I pulled it off", she told "Entertainment Tonight" after the performance.

Oscar was so nervous that he passed out, and Petunia was anxious about camera angles. LOL!

Both acts had wowed the judges but it was the viewers who had the final say and Darci finished the night with the most votes.

The Oklahoma City youngster won the $1 million prize and a headlining appearance at a Las Vegas show.

Darci has been singing since she was 6 years old, and said her mom taught her how to sing.

"America's Got Talent" Season 12 just crowned Darci Lynne as its victor! The top 10 finalists are singer Evie Clair, dance group Diavolo, singer Chase Goehring, singer Angelica Hale, singer Mandy Harvey, comedian Preacher Lawson, dance group Light Balance, singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne, singer Kechi and animal act Sara and Hero.

Indeed, Angelica's performance of Clean Bandit's "Symphony" during Finals night had all four judges swooning, with Heidi Klum declaring her as the best singer in the competition.

"The way I would describe her style is flawless. Eventually I saw Simon [Cowell] come to comfort her". She asked her parents for a puppet to help her overcome her shyness, and on her tenth birthday, her parents surprised her with a puppet.

"AGT" judge Simon Cowell also predicted that Darci Lynne could star in her own show that's similar to "Sesame Street".

The stressful nature of the set-up got to be too much for Angelica at one point, as she broke down in tears even before learning that she had not won the top prize.

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 victor. "I'm just so happy I made it to the finish!"

"No matter what happens, I am still a victor so thank you America for everything that you have done for me", she said.
