Darci Lynne, the 13-year-old singing ventriloquist who won Season 12 of “America’s Got Talent,” returned to the “AGT” stage Wednesday on NBC. And yes, she brought along her rabbit puppet Petunia, who handled the heavy lifting of “Show Off.”
Since last fall, she has been touring the country with her puppet partners Petunia, Oscar the mouse, Katie the Cowgirl and more, performing regularly at theaters and making the occasional TV appearance.
Since her performance Wednesday night was even more astounding than any of the show-stopping appearances she made on “AGT” Season 12. The crowd and celebrity judging panel gave her an enthusiastic standing ovation by the time she and Petunia finished the song’s humorous encore.
