12-year-old singing ventriloquist Darci Lynne Farmer is the hot favorite to win America’s Got Talent 2017, according to the latest Vegas odds.
Darci wowed both America and the ‘AGT’ judges with her audition back in May, which prompted Mel B to hit the Golden Buzzer, sending Darci straight into the live shows. This week, she once again amazed everyone with her new puppet Oscar and easily advanced to the semifinals.
The 12-year-old currently has 7/5 odds of taking home the $1 million grand prize and her own Vegas show. However, she is going to have some tough competition. 9-year-old singer Angelica Hale is right behind her with 4/1 odds and comedian Preacher Lawson is third at 16/1.
Child singer Celine Tam and Simon Cowell’s Golden Buzzer, singer Mandy Harvey round out the top six. Magician Colin Cloud comes in fourth with 18/1 odds of winning, making him just one of two non-singers in the top six.
America’s Got Talent continues next Tuesday on NBC with the second live quarterfinals show of the season.
