12-year-old ventriloquist wins ‘America’s Got Talent’


LOS ANGELES — A 12-year-old girl is getting a $1 million prize and her own Las Vegas show after taking the "America's Got Talent" crown on the season 12 finale of the NBC reality competition.

Darci Lynne Farmer, of Oklahoma City, beat out another youngster, 10-year-old singer Angelica Hale, for the 'AGT' title Wednesday by garnering the most votes from viewers.

Farmer told our sister station KFOR she already has plans for what she plans to do with her $1 million.

"First, I'm absolutely some give money to the mission program at church," she said. "Second, I'm definitely going to give my mom a dishwasher because it doesn't work and we need a new one. Then I want a pug really, really bad."

Farmer is the third ventriloquist to win the competition. Season 2 champ Terry Fator performed a duet with Farmer on the season finale and worked with her on her scripts.
