Following her big win on America’s Got Talent, then-12-year-old ventriloquist Darci Lynne was making her rounds to all of the big talk shows. One of those shows was The Ellen DeGeneres show, which shared a clip from her appearance.
The clip opens with Ellen asking Darci how she got into ventriloquism. Darci said that she first watched a ventriloquist at church, and that she was only five years old at the time. However, she wasn’t completely sold that what she was seeing was real.

“There was this guy doing it…I was watching, and I was like, that’s fake, there’s speakers inside the puppets,” she said.
A few years later, Darci met another ventriloquist, and realized that it was actually the person making the puppets talk. After that, Darci devoted herself to learning the art, and practiced in front of her mirror until she got it down.
