We've made it to the finale of America’s Got Talent’s 12th season, and one thing is clear: Kids have always been a fixture on the show -- its first winner was only 11 years old, and the under-15 crowd has been dominating the final rounds of the past two seasons. In fact, the show's current season marks the second time since its first season that both a winner (12-year-old ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer) and a runner-up (10-year-old singer Angelica Hale) have been so young. So, it’s time to celebrate all the wide-eyed kids who made names for themselves on millions of Americans’ television screens.
