When Darci Lynne walked out onto the America’s Got Talent stage to compete in the first week of semifinals, she had a new trick up her sleeve — or rather, a new puppet.
The 12-year-old ventriloquist and singer brought a new friend named Edna, who just so happened to have a thing for Simon Cowell.
In the video below, posted on September 5, 2017, Darci introduces her elderly puppet to the audience and leaves everyone on their toes.
Almost immediately, Edna asks Darci, “Where’s that Simon fella?”
After being on the stage for about half a minute, Edna starts flirting with the toughest judge, making the entire audience laugh at her hilarious antics.
Then, Edna starts singing Aretha Franklin’s “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” and the crowd goes wild. She asks Darci to bring her closer to Simon, and soon the 12-year-old and her new puppet are serenading him at the judges‘ table. From then on, the performance takes a completely different turn.
Simon looks a bit bashful, but can’t help himself. He laughs along and enjoys Edna’s song for him as millions watch the sweet, yet hysterical, moment.
So, what do you think about Darci and her new puppet, Edna?
