NBC’s America’s Got Talent (AGT) is back on the road looking for the best variety acts the nation has to offer. This past summer AGT celebrated its most watched season ever, with an average of 16 million viewers per episode.
America’s Got Talent celebrates acts of any age, any talent. Throughout the history of the show, AGT has discovered and jump started careers for acts such as singer Grace VanderWaal, who went on to release her first EP, titled Perfectly Imperfect, which became the highest-selling EP of 2016. Ventriloquist Terry Fator, whose AGT win catapulted him into the upper echelon of entertainers and led to a multi-million dollar deal with The Mirage Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas where his award-winning show, Terry Fator: The VOICE of Entertainment, has been running since 2009. Magician Mat Franco who currently headlines his own show, Magic Reinvented Nightly, at the LINQ Hotel & Casino. Singer Jackie Evancho who since dazzling audiences on the AGT stage has gone on to release a series of platinum and gold albums with sales of more than 2.5 million in the U.S.
The AGT Season 12 finale celebrated the crowning of 12-year-old singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer. In her first audition for the judges, Darci wowed Mel B and received her Golden Buzzer for her incredible rendition of Ella Fitzgerald’s Summertime with puppet Petunia. In 24 hours, her audition video amassed 105 million views on Facebook, and within 30 hours of broadcast she became the most socially viewed AGT performer in series history. Since then, Darci has received more than 306 million views to date across all social platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. She also received the most votes ever in the history of the AGT finale.
