The art of magic has been well-represented throughout the fourteen seasons of America’s Got Talent.
Hundreds of incredible magicians have graced the stage, presenting their eloquent mastery of various tricks and captivating the audiences in the process. Yet some acts rose above others.
Keep reading to learn more about four of the best magicians to ever perform on America’s Got Talent.
1. Landon Swank
Landon Swank was only seven years old when he discovered his passion for magic. Since then, he has been captivated by the power magic has to bend reality and create a world where the impossible becomes possible.
On America’s Got Talent, season 6, Landon was eliminated in the Quarterfinals of the competition but was brought back to the show to participate in the Wild Card weeks.
The audience loved him for his boy-next-door-personality, his mastery of playing cards, and his mind-blowing illusions.
Watch Landon’s performance from the finals of the competition and see why he deserves a place among the best magicians:
2. Mat Franco
You may remember Mat Franco as the winner of America’s Got Talent, season 9. But what you may not know is that he was the first magician in the history of NBC’s reality TV show to take home the $1 million prize.
What made him stand out from all the rest was his one of a kind performance style, which featured college humor laced in with shocking magic.
Plus, the audiences also appreciated that his routines highlighted his natural warmth and wit. All of these elements combined turned him into the best magician on America’s Got Talent to compete up to that point.
His success is much more impressive, considering Mat Franco is almost entirely self-taught.
In the video below, you can watch the performance which secured him the $1 Million prize and turned him into one of America’s most popular magicians. Get ready to feel goosebumps!
3. Shin Lim
We couldn’t talk about the best magicians on AGT and not include Shin Lim.
The talented young man claimed victory in Season 13 of America’s Got Talent after baffling both the judges and viewers at home with his spectacular smoke-and-card tricks.
A self-proclaimed “sleight of hand artist,” Shin Lim always seems to have more than one ace up his sleeve.
In addition to his undeniable magic skills, Shin has also managed to create a mysterious, interesting stage persona that captivates the audiences and leaves them wanting more.
Watch the clip below to gain a better grasp of Shin’s incredible talent.
Some things are just entertaining, no matter what year it is, how old you are, or what kind of toppings you like on your pizza.
And a guy in a dragon costume who is spitting jokes instead of fire, while performing jaw-dropping magic tricks, is undoubtedly one of those things.
Piff the Magic Dragon first competed in season 10 of America’s Got Talent. However, in 2019, he returned to the AGT family by performing on America’s Got Talent: The Champions spinoff.
Watch him shock Hedi Klum with his unexpected routine in the video below.
