10 finalists came, saw, and conquered the hearts of America during this season of America’s Got Talent, but ultimately one went home with the grand prize during last night’s nail bitingly good season finale. With a million dollars and the chance to headline the AGT live show in Las Vegas this November, we’re pleased to announce that the season 12 winner of America’s Got Talent is none other than…
…Darci Lynne Farmer!

12 years old and rocking an absolutely beautiful personality, a winning sense of humor and talent like you wouldn’t believe, Darci Lynne quickly became a fan favorite from the first moment she appeared on our television screens at the beginning of her journey to stardom. Her seemingly impossible duet between puppets Oscar and Petunia Tuesday night went viral, amassing millions of hits across social media in the hours after it aired and further cementing what everyone watching her rise to fame knew from the very beginning: this talented young lady was going to win, and she was going to win big.
Also competing for the coveted win were comedian Preacher Lawson, singer Angelica Hale, singer Evie Clair, dance group Light Balance, singer Kechi, dog act Sara and Hero, singer Mandy Harvey, dance group Diavolo, and singer Chase Goehring.
Check out the big moment in the video below, but fair warning: don’t be surprised if you find yourself tearing up! This is what talent looks like – congratulations on your big win, Darci Lynne!
