Darci Lynne Farmer was crowned the winner of America's Got Talent season 21 on Wednesday night. The 12-year-old ventriloquist burst into tears and hugged her rabbit puppet Petunia as her two brothers ran onstage to congratulate her. Farmer's prize includes a $1 million grand prize and a headlining gig at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas from September 3-4. Simon Cowell was so blown away by Farmer during the first night of the live finals on Tuesday that he predicted right then and there, "I think you're gonna win." Ten-year-old singer Angelica Hale finished in second place and graciously thanked viewers for their support by declaring, "No matter what happens, I am still a winner so thank you America for everything that you have done for me."
