Lys Agnes from "America's Got Talent 2011" is one of the Top 48 acts in Season 6 of the NBC talent competition series. She is a singer who currently lives in Denver, Colorado.

Lys Agnes ("America's Got Talent 2011") was born in Reno, Nevada, to MGM's "Hello Hollywood Hello" principal singer, Diane Petersen. During her childhood, Lys attended many of her mother's performances until the show's close, but no one knew of her own singing abilities until her mother came upon her hiding in the basement singing into a little tape recorder, playing it back to herself to hear how she sounded.

Upon entering high school, Lys became the National Anthem singer for the school's basketball games. After graduating, Lys chose different paths, eventually ending up at a university to study music. She chose classical guitar as her focus but quickly discovered her operatic voice while fooling around transcribing operatic arias to her guitar. Lys fell in love with the operatic sound but could not get her heart into the operas. She continued to build her operatic repertoire until suddenly Lys' fiancé was tragically killed in a car accident while in the U.S. Virgin Islands. As a consequence, Lys gave up her music and vocal studies for the next two years. She took odd jobs to get by, but finally discovered that, while still in mourning, her life was slipping away and her talent lay dormant. With a "carpe diem" sense of urgency, she abruptly quit her retail job to fully pursue her singing career.
