America’s Got Talent made a special jump to Sunday this week (although according to the NBC website there will be another new episode on Tuesday) with only one magic contestant. Mike Super described himself as a “mystifier” and “stay home dad” before blowing away the judges with a demonstration of mental energy. He managed to go on to the next round after another psychic act failed to impress.

If Mike looks familiar, it may be that you are remembering his winning run on NBC’s Phenomenon back in 2007. After the backlash across the pond against winners from other talent shows appearing on Britain’s Got Talent, iTricks was a bit surprised to see someone from another NBC talent show competing on AGT. Will there be a backlash? Only time will tell. One thing is for certain, though and that is magic is nicely represented so far on this season of AGT and there are auditions yet to air.
