Ventriloquist Darci Lynne was announced as the Season 12 champion last night. First runner-up was ten-year-old singer Angelica Hale. The top five finalists also included Ukrainian dance group, Light Balance, deaf singer Mandy Harvey, and Sarah and Hero.
The night was full of star-studded performances, including duets with Kelly Clarkson, Kechi and Angelica, and Shania Twain and Mandy Harvey. Derek Hough joined Light Balance in their finale performance last night, and James Austin sang with Chase Goehring and Evie Claire.
Lynne wins one-million dollars and a ten-week headlining show in Las Vegas. She got to perform with fellow ventriloquist and former “AGT” winner Terry Fator, who still headlines in Vegas.
