Imagine being a 12-year-old performer standing in the national spotlight and being told you just won $1 million dollars and are heading to headline a show at the Mirage hotel and casino in Las Vegas. Crying isn't a shocking reaction at all.
As Darci Lynne describes the moment after the show, "It was waterworks right here on this face. It was like a water faucet."
Standing next to her friend, and runner up, Angelica Hale, all the feelings she had bottled up all just came flooding out.
It wasn't until her family ran onstage to celebrate with her, that she noticed her younger brother had tears in his eyes too.
I’m really, really happy because my little brother cried and he’s never cried before," she said. "And it made me laugh too, because I’m like, ‘You’re crying, man. You’re crying.’”
Runner up Angelica Hale also shared in the tears of joy in an Instagram post.
The young ventriloquist stole the hearts of Americans and the judges with her hilarious and singing puppets.
She impressed judge Mel B, who used her coveted Golden Buzzer to send her from auditions straight to the live shows.
“I was very, very shy but America’s Got Talent has given me a voice and more confidence than I could ever have,” Farmer said in her video package before she made the top five on Wednesday.

Once she had pulled herself together, she was ready to share her exciting dreams about what she will do with her winnings.
"I have to get my mom a dishwasher, and maybe get a fridge along with it," Farmer said. "I want a pug so bad, because I love puppies and it’s been a long time since I had a puppy. They have wrinkles and fat rolls and they’re so cute."
Congrats on the big win Darci!
