Howie Mandel, Mel B., Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell have had a very busy year so far. ‘Cuz 2017 has brought some of the most stunning (and even unusual) performances to the America’s Got Talent stage. Seriously, what in the wide world would we do without reality TV? Every time a new season rolls in, it brings months of solid entertainment, before leaving us high and dry! So before this year’s dry spell kicks in, let’s recap the 10 best performances of AGT Season 12.
Not a year has gone by since AGT’s debut when the reality TV show has not managed to wow us. In its roster of performers, it is usually the singers that get the most press thanks to America’s love for all things sappy and sentimental. But while these powerhouse performers definitely deserve all the attention they’ve managed to reel in, it is important to know that singing isn’t the only talent that can bring the house down.
One of the best things about America’s Got Talent is the diversity of its contestants. From magicians to mind readers to puppeteers, there’s just no telling who is going to take the stage next! Over the course of the 12th season of the show, a number of performers went viral online. Among them were 12-year-old singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer and her puppet, Petunia. The “pair” performed the song “Summertime” composed by American pianist George Gershwin. Darci got the well-deserved Golden Buzzer treatment after Mel B. chose to advance her directly to the finals.
