Throughout the competition’s 16 seasons, magic on America’s Got Talent has been anything but boring.

Many extraordinary magic acts have been featured over the years, and some made it to the final stages of the show.

Dustin Tavella, a magician, is the latest AGT champion to take home the $1 million prize, as well as a headlining show at Luxor Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Magic on America's Got Talent

Here are four other brilliant entertainers who’ve made AGT history and left us all scratching our heads — in the best way possible.

1. Mat Franco

The year is 2016. It’s America’s Got Talent ninth season, and Mat Franco becomes the first-ever magician to be crowned a winner on the show.

It was a moment that made AGT history and showed that close-up magic, when done right, can amaze, thrill, and entertain an audience of millions.

Mat Franco’s personality-driven, skill-based sleight of hand magic that also mixes in storytelling continues to leave audiences awe-struck today.

If you’re interested in booking Mat Franco for an event that everyone will remember, be sure to reach out to us today for more details.

2. Shin Lim

We couldn’t talk about magic on America’s Got Talent and not include Shin Lim – the magician who won the show twice (first in season 13 and again in season one of AGT: The Champions). 

The Canadian entertainer has dazzled everyone with his incredible card manipulation and sleight of hand.

His elaborate close-up card magic routines and suave stage persona have turned him into one of the most popular entertainers to ever appear on the show.

Check out one of his most viewed performances on the show in the clip below. What a great display of magic on America’s Got Talent!

3. The Clairvoyants

The Austrian magician and mentalist duo competed in season 11, finishing as the season’s runner-up.

Throughout their journey on AGT, the two entertainers have been praised for their extraordinary skills. The mentalist tricks they showcased on the show made it seem like they possessed supernatural powers.

Check out their performance in the finals of AGT in the clip below. See why they deserve a spot among the best when it comes to magic on America’s Got Talent.

4. Collins Key

Collins Key rose to fame as the youngest magician finalist in AGT’s history. He was only 16 years old when he auditioned for Season 8 of the show.

However, despite his young age and lack of experience, Collins managed to leave a lasting impression on the judges and the audience.

His energetic close-up magic tricks, strong personality, and fresh approach to magic have helped Collins become a hit with audiences from all walks of life.

For his final performance on the show, Collins performed a baffling close-up magic trick in Kathie Lee and Hoda.
