Not only did Farmer win the competition, but she set a record while doing it. In the end, after a record number of votes, a long road of performances, outrageous support from new fans and critics from the judges the two stood ready for Banks to read the results.

If you've followed Darci's act you'll know that she performs with Oscar and Petunia. "I am literally the happiest girl in the World and nothing can take that away!", she posted on Instagram following her Finals performance.

Who do I think I am? you ask.

Then, what Darci Lynne was awesome - she made both of them sing!

And America's next top talent is. She now takes home a million dollars in prize money as well as her own Las Vegas act.

Her parents noticed her talent in singing when she was just 2 years old.

Before she was thrust into the global spotlight when she joined "America's Got Talent", Hale had her hands full performing at various events in the USA, including raising awareness and funds for the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

In this week's live final, Darci beat the competition to be crowned the latest America's Got Talent victor, scooping a $1 million prize.

Simon Cowell called it the "perfect tribute", adding, "Your voice was lovely, your song was handsome and I'm very proud of you for what you've just done".

As the victor, Darci Lynne will take home the grand prize: $1 million, and a headlining show on the Las Vegas strip.

Deaf singer Mandy Harvey went next along with dance troupe Light Balance - leaving the adorable Angelica Hale to go against Darci in the cutest final-two pairing in America's Got Talent history.

It will also pack in several guest appearances (though we can't tell you who, as has become par for the course for AGT over the last several weeks) and other ways to fill time.
