Monday, January 7, 2019 - 9:15am

“America’s Got Talent” (AGT) season 12 winner and audience favorite Darci Lynne had much to celebrate heading into 2019. Not only did 2018 find the singer/ventriloquist performing coast to coast logging more than 50 stops across the country and selling collectively more than 100,000 tickets (grossing almost $5 million) but she also performed and hosted her first original TV special “Darci Lynne: My Hometown Christmas” on NBC. The program was a hit, attracting 6.565 million total viewers and earning a re-air by the network the week following its premiere. To top it off Darci released her first-ever single "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" from the special. 

Between her 2018 Darci Lynne & Friends Tour and first-ever holiday tour, Rocking Around the Christmas Tree with Darci Lynne and Friends Tour the powerhouse vocalist has visited cities across the country including Atlanta, GA; Nashville, TN; and Chicago, IL and has played to sold-out crowds, including the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. She also marked an important milestone with her stage debut at the Grand Ole Opry and has since returned for multiple performances.
 
Not one to rest on her laurels, the young dynamo and her beloved puppets already have big plans for the new year including a tour and return to television. 
 
Darci will hit the road next month for her Fresh Out of the Box Tour. The 18-city trek will kick off on Feb. 15 in Pennsylvania and crisscross the nation with stops in Seattle, WA; Austin, TX; Cincinnati, OH and Newark, NJ. Additional information and tickets are available now at

And tonight, the multi-faceted performer returns to NBC’s AGT franchise for the first-ever "America's Got Talent: The Champions" season. Some of the most incredible and memorable "Got Talent" contestants from 184 countries around the world will return to the stage and compete for the title of AGT Champion. The new spin-off series premieres tonight on NBC at 8 pm ET / 7 pm CT.
 
Darci gained national attention when she won NBC’s hit series “America’s Got Talent” in 2017. She captivated audiences with her incredible performances alongside puppets Oscar and Petunia, earning the most votes ever for a winning act.

About Darci Lynne:
Winning NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” at just 12-years old by the most votes for a final performance in the history of the show, singer/ventriloquist Darci Lynne impresses audiences across the country with her sweetheart disposition and undeniable, show-stopping talent beyond her years. Accompanied by her musical friends including a divaesque rabbit: Petunia, a shy and soulful mouse: Oscar and a sarcastic old woman: Edna. Singing through her friends helped the young entertainer find a voice inside she didn’t know she had and helped her overcome a lifelong struggle with shyness. An Oklahoma native, Darci began participating in talent-based pageants at a young age and picked up ventriloquism shortly after. Two weeks later, Darci began tackling talent shows, eventually making it to the biggest talent show on television, NBC’s “America’s Got Talent.” Following her big win, she has been featured on NBC’s “Little Big Shots,” Food Network’s “Kids Baking Championship,” “Ellen” and “TODAY.” Her first Christmas special “Darci Lynne: My Hometown Christmas” aired in Dec. 11, 2018. Darci and her friends are continually on the road bringing smiles to audiences across the country. In 2019 Darci is set to appear on NBC’s spin-off series “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” premiering Jan. 7 and will hit the road for her Fresh Out of the Box Tour in February.
