Hi! I’m Darci Lynne and I won the 12th season of America's Got Talent and I was runner-up in the 1st season of AGT: Champions.

All the rescheduled dates for the Fresh Out Of The Box Tour are now up on my website. I can’t wait until the time comes when my friends, Petunia, Oscar, Edna, Katie, and I can get back out and perform for you all!

4runner161891 karma

You’ve given my niece a true “role model” she uses her teddy bear and does the cutest skits! Her ventriloquism skills are growing and it’s fun to watch! If you could give her any advice what would it be? Also her name is Taegan and I would love to show her if you said hello!

ItsDarciLynne75 karma

I was accidentally logged in on my moms account...but this is me!!

ItsDarciLynne119 karma

Hi Taegan!! I'm so happy you are doing ventriloquism!! My best advice would be to perform in front of the mirror. This way you can see your lip control and how you are reacting to your puppet! Good luck and have fun!!
