I've spent most of the last week crying and grieving over the loss of my dog Caesar, who passed away on Monday afternoon, May 22nd. I smiled for the first time last night, when I watched this little girl, Darci Lynne and her puppet sing on America's Got Talent.

Obviously, I wasn't the only one who was moved by her performance. She received a standing ovation from the audience, many of whom had tears in their eyes. Plus, Mel B was so impressed that she hit the golden buzzer. It was well-deserved. Now, Darci gets to go straight to the live show.

I hope she wins!
