Best Magicians from America’s Got Talent
1) Eric Chien
If you’ve been keeping up with the magic industry lately, you probably know that Eric Chien has been making quite an impression on some of the largest and most important stages in the entertainment industry. After moving to American from Taiwan at the young age of four, Chien discovered his talent for magic at the age of sixteen as a way to make more friends. However, it was only after he appeared and won the 2018 Magic World Championships and Asia’s Got Talent that he truly evolved into a confident magician after years of doubting himself, a feeling almost everyone can relate too. However, Chien’s fame didn’t just stop at Asia’s Got Talent, because the next step for him came when he stepped onto the stage at America’s Got Talent, earning himself a spot on season 14 of the show. Chien’s world-class talent of being able to change not only the colors on his magic cards but also his vest, as well as morphing cards into coins won him a spot in the Judge Cuts. Eric Chien’s story is one of the humble beginnings, relatable doubts, insecurities, and immeasurable success, making him a world champion magician to watch and be blown away by every performance. One thing is for certain; there is a reason Eric Chien is taking the magic world by storm.
