Darci Lynne Farmer was no stranger to the world of television when she stepped on stage to audition for America’s Got Talent. Long before her “Summertime” duet with puppet Petunia the rabbit that earned Mel B’s Golden Buzzer, Darci Lynne appeared on both the US and UK versions of Little Big Shots.
Previously Darci Lynne opted for puppets that more resembled humans, winning the hearts of viewers with her sidekick Katie the singing cowgirl. The pair duetted on “I Wanna Be A Cowboy’s Sweetheart” on both shows, showing off the young performer’s yodeling abilities. Both US host Steve Harvey and UK host Dawn French seemed quite impressed with the youngster, bringing out their own puppet-likenesses to join in on the fun.
Only a year later, Darci Lynne started her AGT journey and brought her animal puppet friends all the way to the finals, winning herself a cool million dollars and a Las Vegas headlining show.
