Darci Lynne Farmer, the winner of the sensational Season 12 of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, will headline an exclusive engagement of America’s Got Talent Live, a stage show version of the NBC #1 rated television show of the summer, in Las Vegas Thursday, Nov. 2, Friday, Nov. 3 and Saturday, Nov. 4 in the PH Showroom at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.

Darci Lynne, who considers herself shy, began singing at 6 years old. Her mother entered her into a pageant in the hope that it would give her daughter confidence. It was at a pageant where she was first inspired by a ventriloquist and decided to give it a try. During her initial AGT audition, Darci Lynne wowed judge Mel B and received her Golden Buzzer for her incredible rendition of Ella Fitzgerald’s “Summertime” with puppet Petunia. Darci Lynne’s other memorable performances included her rendition of Jackson 5’s “Who’s Loving You” in the Quarter-Finals round alongside her puppet Oscar, and in the Semi-Finals she performed Aretha Franklin’s hit song “Natural Woman,” debuting her puppet Edna Doorknocker. Darci Lynne then went on to win Season 12 of AGT, securing the most votes ever for a finale show, with her incredible performance of the Beatles’ classic “With a Little Help From My Friends” alongside her puppets, Oscar and Petunia.
Throughout the season, Darci Lynne became a true social media sensation. In 24 hours, her audition video amassed 105 million views on Facebook, and within 30 hours of the broadcast she became the most socially viewed AGT performer in series history. Since then, Darci Lynne has received 306 million views to date across all social platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
Joining Darci Lynne on the Las Vegas stage will be Season 12 finalists singer Angelica Hale, dance group Light Balance and comedian Preacher Lawson.
