Farmer first showcased her skills to a much wider audience in 2016, when she appeared on NBC kid’s talent show Little Big Shots. But her career hit the big time a year later when she auditioned for America’s Got Talent. Performing a duet of George Gershwin’s “Summertime” with Petunia, her rabbit puppet, Farmer became an instant hit.

The tweenager zoomed all the way to the quarter finals after judge Mel B decided her act was worthy of advancement via the show’s Golden Buzzer. In her first live show, Farmer serenaded the former Spice Girl with a rendition of Smokey Robinson’s “Who’s Loving’ You” accompanied by a stuttering mouse puppet called Oscar. All four America’s Got Talent judges felt compelled by her performance to give the little girl a standing ovation.

Unsurprisingly, the audience at home felt similarly. They voted Farmer through to the semi-finals, where she performed Aretha Franklin’s “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman.” Joined by her puppet Edna Doorknocker, who flirted with judge Simon Cowell during the routine, Farmer once again received a standing ovation for her efforts. And, just like before, she sailed through to the next round – the final.
