America's Got Talent victor crowned but who won in the final?

Watch Farmer's finals performance above. Twain then performed a new song, "Life's about to Get Good", from her upcoming album, Now, bowing September 29.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, 12-year-old Darci said at first that she had "no words" to describe how it feels to be the victor of "America's Got Talent". "I covered myself. But I do believe with Darci, when I watched it back, she was the one I would say who brought something so few people could do, let alone at that age", he said on Wednesday night.

Angelica had a tough act to beat in victor Darci Lynne.

Dubbed as "a star in the future" by Simon Cowell, Hale first impressed the "America's Got Talent" judges when she performed a powerful rendition of "Rise Up" as her audition piece.

Darci Lynne Farmer has won the 12th season of America's Got Talent.

Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel, Mel B and Heidi Klum were treated to some truly incredible performances, all introduced by host Tyra Banks.

In third place was Light Balance, a dance group who previously made the semi-finals of Britain's Got Talent in 2014, while singer-songwriter Mandy Harvey was in third and dog act Sara and Hero finished 4th.

It all came down to Darci Lynne Farmer and 10-year old crooner Angelica Hale.

Tonight is the 2017 finale of America's Got Talent and we are reporting the victor as they are announced live, along with a recap of the night's events.

Personally, I'm just glad stand-up comic Preacher Lawson didn't make the top five.

"Although winning America's Got Talent would be unbelievable and life-changing, my primary focus is to spread joy and happiness through laughter and song". Sure, since she's tailor-made to have a Las Vegas show at some point. From there they were dwindled down as Tyra revealed who America voted for. She asked her parents for a puppet to help her overcome her shyness, and on her tenth birthday, her parents surprised her with a puppet.

We are so very excited for you here at News 4.
