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. :smile:
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.
