Nearly 3,000 guests were present during a private engagement at Caesars Palace, where they were treated to exclusive performances by Darci Lynne Farmer and Fergie.
Darci Lynne Farmer, the winner of Season 12 of NBC’s “America’s Got Talent,” kicked off the New Year’s Eve celebration by singing “O Mio Babbino Caro” and “Hit The Road Jack” with her puppet, Petunia. The singing ventriloquist also showcased her amazing talent with appearances from puppets Oscar and Edna.
Singer-songwriter Fergie took the stage later that night in a blinged-out blazer and opened with her hit song, “You Already Know.” The eight-time GRAMMY® Award-winners set also included her most popular hits including “London Bridge” and “Fergalicious.”
