Admittedly, it's hard to gauge someone against other winners one day removed from them winning, especially since one of the things that we look at in our full victor rankings piece is someone's ability to remain an enormous star following the season wrapping up on NBC.

This isn't Darci's first brush with fame, and it certainly won't be her last. Amazingly, Darci Lynne has only been doing ventriloquy for 2 years! It's an incredibly unique talent, and one that should be praised.

After her performance, the judges supported Evie instead of offering criticisms with Simon Cowell stating, "I'm not going to judge you".

Farmer's win was no surprise to judge Simon Cowell, who predicted she'd emerge victorious following the contestant's final performance on Tuesday, alongside her assistants Oscar and Petunia. Does the name Neal E. Boyd ring a bell?

Darci Lynne had been a strong contender throughout the competition and during the finale she got to meet Jeff Dunham, one of the best ventriloquists in the world.

The Atlantic Ocean couldn't keep Darci contained - she also competed at age 11 the British show "Little Big Shots".

The Miss America 2017 and the US Open in 2015 were just some of the notable events she was invited to perform in.

Darci Lynne Farmer is a singing ventriloquist from Oklahoma City. Clarkson noted that the finalists all get the same amount of airtime on the show as the victor.

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

Darci, a middle school student in the Deer Creek school system, not only takes home the $1 million dollars but she has the privilege of headlining a show in Las Vegas.

"I was so overcome with joy, and I was kind of shocked and delirious at that time so I can't remember anything", the 12-year-old told Us Weekly and other reporters following the finale.

Once Darci was announced as the victor, Angelica's crying immediately stopped however, suggesting that her tears had more to do with stress and less to do with the show's outcome.
