America has always had a soft spot for puppets. All you have to do is take a look at how iconic the Muppets have become over the years to realize that. Maybe it is the silliness, or how relatable they can be because they seem so human, but it is clear that puppets have a special spot in our hearts.
Darci Lynne Farmer, a young puppeteer, ventriloquist, and singer, has become the epitome of those sentiments with her “Edna” puppet in a video from the 2019 America’s Got Talent: The Champions competition. This performance shows not only Farmer’s talent but the joy and hilarity her puppet act brings to audiences everywhere.
The finale of “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” came down to the two most recent winners of “America’s Got Talent”: Darci Lynne Farmer, the incredibly talented 14-year-old singer and ventriloquist from Oklahoma City, and Season 13 winner Shin Lim, the close-up magic illusionist.
In the end, Lim’s mesmerizing close-up card trick won them over, but Darci Lynne Farmer’s performance was one for the history books, featuring her lovable senior puppet, “Edna” who just happens to have a crush on Simon Cowell — as your about to see.
