American ventriloquist and TV celebrity Darci Lynne Farmer is worth $8 million. In 2016, Darci Lynne Farmer initially gained widespread attention after appearing on the TV show “Little Big Shots.” After winning “America’s Got Talent” in its twelfth season, her star continued to rise the following year.
Since then, Lynne and her ventriloquist puppets have toured extensively and appeared on numerous television shows. They gave her a million dollars and a show in Las Vegas for winning America’s Got Talent.
Darci’s Lynne Farmer was born to Misty and Clarke on October 12, 2004, in Oklahoma City. There are three brothers in her family. Lynne had a passion for singing from a young age, but she was too nervous to ever perform in front of an audience.
Her parents advised her to enter the 2014 International Cinderella Scholarship Program to help her conquer her anxiety. Not only did Lynne win the title of International Mini Miss during the pageant, but she also met young ventriloquist Laryssa Bonacquisti, who encouraged her to give it a try.
Lynne’s parents gifted her a puppet for her tenth birthday, and she participated and won the Edmond, Oklahoma, edition of “Edmond’s Got Talent.” Soon after, she connected with Gary Owen, a ventriloquy coach who would eventually become her manager and mentor. In 2015, Lynne competed in Oklahoma’s Got Talent and Oklahoma Kids, where she ultimately took first place in both competitions for young performers.
“Little Big Shots”
When Lynne made an appearance on the March 2016 episode of “Little Big Shots,” she quickly became a household name. When she appeared, she sang “I Want to Be a Cowboy’s Sweetheart” with her puppet Katie. Later in the year, Lynne performed at the Vent Haven International Ventriloquists’ ConVENTion, where she became the event’s first-ever kid ventriloquist to perform in an evening show. Lynne sang the same song she did on the American edition of “Little Big Shots” a year later on the British version of the show.
“America’s Got Talent”
During the 12th season of “America’s Got Talent” in 2017, Lynne gained the most attention she had ever received. During the opening episode of the season, she sang “Summertime” with her rabbit puppet Petunia. The performance surpassed every other “AGT” video on YouTube within the first 30 hours after airing.
For her next performance, Lynne serenaded judge Mel B with her mouse puppet Oscar while performing “Who’s Lovin’ You.” She made it to the semifinals, where she performed “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” with her puppet Edna Doorknocker. Lynne sang “With a Little Help from My Friends” in the championship round while accompanied by Oscar and Petunia, her puppets.
Ultimately, she sang “Anything You Can Do” with her idol Terry Fator on the “AGT” season finale. Lynne was subsequently revealed as the winner of the season, collecting a $1 million reward and a headlining event at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.
Progression in A Television Career
Following her breakthrough on “AGT,” Lynne has guest-starred on a wide variety of shows. She made an appearance in the 2017 “A Very Pentatonix Christmas” special alongside her puppet Petunia. Lynne had her own Christmas special the following year called “Darci Lynne: My Hometown Christmas.” She also sang “Jingle Bell Rock” on NBC‘s “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” special and appeared on the reality show “Kids Baking Championship.” Lynne made her AGT come back in 2019 to take part in the Champions edition of the show.
She finished in the top three of the preliminary voting but didn’t get enough votes to advance. In spite of this, Lynne returned as a wild card act on her way to the final and placed second, behind only the magician Shin Lim. She continued to make appearances as a guest performer on “AGT” throughout the years that followed.
Lynne had two appearances in 2019 and 2020 on the sketch comedy series “All That.” It was also during this time that she started appearing as a panelist on Nickelodeon’s Unfiltered, a game program she had previously appeared on as a contestant. Lynne appeared on an episode of “Side Hustle,” a different Nickelodeon show, in 2021. She has been a featured guest on numerous talk shows, including those of Ellen DeGeneres, Today, Steve, and Kelly Clarkson.
Touring and Live Performance
Lynne has taken her puppet show on the road and performed at numerous large events. In 2016, she gave a performance at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for a New Year’s Eve celebration. Lynne went on her first national tour, titled “Darci Lynne and Friends Live,” a few years later. From its initial five stops, the tour eventually reached 52 cities across 2018 and 2019.
Lynne went to the Starkey Hearing Foundation’s banquet at this time. She then launched the “Darci Lynne and Friends: Fresh Out of the Box” tour for her second outing. The “My Lips Are Sealed (Except When They’re Not)” tour, Lynne’s third, was launched in July 2021 and was set to run until November 2022.

In light of Lynne’s success since her “America’s Got Talent” victory, many people believe that ventriloquism has made a comeback thanks to her efforts. She will have her own exhibit, Darci Lynne’s Got Talent, at the Edmond Historical Society and Museum in Oklahoma in the summer of 2020. There were things like her initial practice puppets, costumes from her TV shows, and tour posters on display.
