The 12-year-old Oklahoma girl who won the hearts of America spoke with KFOR about being named the big victor on America's Got Talent.

Oscar was so nervous that he passed out, and Petunia was anxious about camera angles. LOL!

Kid ventriloquist Darci Lynne won hearts over with her unique act which combines puppetry, comedy and music.

Before the big name was revealed, the finale kicked off with a bit of a victory lap as each of the performers took the stage for a brief showcase with a celebrity.

"I was very, very shy but America's Got Talent has given me a voice and more confidence than I could ever have", she said on the series.

The child ventriloquist, who walked away with a $1 million prize, is already a victor on YouTube notching over 1.5 million viewers.

The Oklahoma City youngster won the $1 million prize and a headlining appearance at a Las Vegas show.


Host Tyra Banks said AGT had its biggest vote in history during final-round performances Tuesday night. Season 2 champ Terry Fator performed a duet with Farmer on the season finale and worked with her on her scripts.

"Tears of joy! Congratulations @itsdarcilynne", the caption of a photo featuring a crying Hale and her father read.

Watch out Jeff Dunham, because America has its next great ventriloquist.

Coming in third was dance crew Light Balance, followed by deaf singer Mandy Harvey. Hale and fellow singer Kechi were the first of the finalists to have one last chance in the spotlight.

But even though Darci Lynne is celebrating her success on the show, she couldn't help but miss all of the people she met throughout her short journey.

"The tough part is results because you just become such good friends with everyone, it's hard to see them leave", Farmer said.
