Darci Lynne Farmer brought a cute ventriloquist act this season to America's Got Talent

Then her puppet opened its mouth to sing, the cute went into overdrive and led her right to the $1 million prize on America's Got Talent.

Darci Lynne, from Oklahoma City, Okla., got the most votes ever for its finale, according to AGT. The 12-year-old couldn't stop crying after she won. Even Petunia, her puppet, looked stunned that she stood alone among the 10 finalists.

Darci Lynne had received the golden buzzer, sending her straight to the live shows. Her performances have gotten more than 300 million views, breaking an AGT record according to the show.

It was fitting that a ventriloquist would win this summer. Ventriloquists and Dallasites Jeff Dunham and Terry Fator, who won season two of AGT, performed during the live finale. 

Darci Lynne, who says she started ventriloquism to help her with shyness, even performed with Fator, whom she called her idol. Who knew anything could top when -- on her own -- her puppets Oscar and Petunia performed a duet on "With a Little Help From My Friends" or when new puppet Edna Doorknocker sang "Natural Woman" and hit on judge Simon Cowell?

Darci Lynne will headline "America's Got Talent Live" in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in November. 

Auditions for the reality TV competition show come to Houston on Dec. 9.
