Darci Lynne, a 12-year-old who uses ventriloquism to overcome her shyness, stunned the crowd with a surprising singing act.
“I want to keep ventriloquism alive because it’s not common, you know?” the Oklahoma City girl said before breaking into the number. Afterwards she revealed that she’s only been doing the act for two years, after her mom gave her a rabbit puppet for her 10th birthday to help her overcome painful shyness. That’s all gone now as Darci Lynne confidently won over the audience, as well as the hearts of millions of viewers at home. She burst into tears of relief and joy after such a warm reception. “You know what? I think your puppet I’m guessing is very much like you, charming and adorable,” judge Mel B gushed.
