On the second night of the finals, Farmer was able to perform with her “idol,” Terry Factor, a former winner of the show who signed a $100-million, five-year contract with The Mirage in Las Vegas.
After the show, “Extra's” Terri Seymour spoke with the young champion, who was almost at a loss for words. She said, “Honestly, it hasn't hit me yet. I don't have any words and most of my words [are] just crying."
On Thursday, "Extra's" Mario Lopez spoke with Darci at Universal Studios Hollywood, where she talked about the win and how she's processing the last 24 hours.
Earlier this week, Simon Cowell revealed that Darci Lynne was his top choice to win the show, telling “Extra's” Terri Seymour, "Darci, Preacher and Light Balance… I don't think it will be a singer this year. I could be wrong, but whoever it is, I will genuinely be happy.”
