One of the favorites to win this year’s America’s Got Talent is Darci Lynne Farmer and her singing ventriloquism act. If the analytics of our site and social media are any indication, she’s going to win in a landslide. For a girl who says she’s super shy her performances are anything but timid. Most notably last week’s semi-finals performance in which she made judge Simon Cowell blush.
Messing with Simon Cowell is always a risky mood. Let’s face it, the guy is temperamental. You kind of never know how he’s going to react. Though he’s softened a bit in the last few years, he’s still kind of grumpy. But he has a soft spot in his cold, grey heart for Darci Lynne Farmer. Who doesn’t? Last week when she serenaded Simon up close and personal with her randy old lady puppet Edna, Simon looked visibly embarrassed. But whatever she did it worked. Simon told her after the show,
“He said that even though I was in huge trouble for embarrassing him in front of millions of people, he still thought I was amazing and he thought what I did was brilliant.”
A lot of people credit Simon’s more laid back attitude with having a kid of his own. The old American Idol Simon Cowell would have yelled at Darci and torn Edna’s head off.
