    This girl could very well be the next Shari Lewis:

    Always nice to see the younger generation take an interest in puppetry like this.

    1. Tyra Banks?!?!?

    2. The good thing about being in a community who loves puppetry is that you can always surprise someone. The majority of people I know- in real life or not- have a very good sense of humor when in comes to puppetry. You can always assure yourself that if a puppeteer/ventriloquist comes on these kinds of shows they will get LOTS of recognition, for example, Terry Fator, Paul Zerdin, Patsy May, etc...

    3. Tyra Banks?!?!?

    4. Interesting technique: She attached the right arm to the chin with a rod so whenever the head moves so does the arm, kind of like Big Bird's hands.

    5. Tyra Banks?!?!?

    6. Apparently she was on Little Big Shots UK.

    That was very adorable. That special surprise at the end was especially wonderful.

    Now I want her to win the thing, just like Mr. Fator. :)

    Don't forget Paul Zerdin!

    If a 12 year old can enter with this talent, YOU CAN TOO!

    I guess I'm a few months late, but I don't watch these kind of shows, but I did come across this video on YouTube fairly recently and was pretty blown away. I was genuinely pleased.

    She is extremely talented and her future looks bright.

    Did you guys see Darci last night during the first live round? She did really well!

    Meh. She kind of stole the joke of liking Mel from the Ira act, and sang again. I'm not too wowed.

    Pretty good for a 12 year old imo. As someone who's been singing for years the fact that she can sing well with her mouth closed is impressive.

    Her mouth isn't necessarily closed, there is a gap between her teeth. Look more into ventriloquism, you'll kind of get the act.

    Lol ok her mouth isn't entirely closed, my bad. I don't know why you feel the need to debate me on every post regarding this? Sorry I'm not an expert on ventriloquism but I do know the concept of it. I thought she did a good job and that's my opinion.

    Gavry is a purist among purists.

    Really? She's 12! I thought she did pretty good for a 12 year old.
