Quick Change Artists On AGT

Posted by Michael on June 13th, 2018

In addition to Lord Nil, whose performance we featured earlier in the week since it was “leaked” by NBC, magic was represented on America’s Got Talent last night by Sixto and Lucia. The ex-couple was inspired to perform on the AGT stage by the success of David and Dania on the show several seasons ago.

AGT “Leak,” Kanye’s B-Day Magic And More [Magic Bulletin]

Posted by Michael on June 11th, 2018

Week three of America’s Got Talent brings the third officially “leaked” video clip of an audition and the third magic related act. This time it is Lord Nil escaping from a weird 1984 thought police box of scorpions.

Is the extra attention magic is getting from AGT a good thing or a bad thing? The next night of auditions airs tomorrow on NBC.

Kanye West just celebrate a birthday and Lior Surchard swung by to entertain. You can catch pictures and some cell phone video over at Refinery29.

Finally, we mentioned Chatham, Ontario magician Marien Hopman was the victim of theft last week when a stash of props was taken from his glovebox. CBC has run another article on Marien and his plea to simply return his equipment, no questions asked. You can also listen to a CBC interview with Marien here. (And Marien, if you have a website, we can’t find it! Pass it along!)

Shin Lim On AGT Tonight!

America’s Got Talent returns tonight on NBC (check your local listings) and this officially “leaked” clip confirms there will be magic as Shin Lim takes the AGT stage.

For Smoothini, It All Started Here…

Posted by Michael on April 12th, 2018

From back in 2014 comes this America’s Got Talent clip that introduced the country to our favorite street hustlin’ Marine turned magician, Smoothini the Ghetto Houdini. Since his Fuse TV show has been confirmed (it premieres in July), we thought we’d dig out this oldie but goodie. The official AGT posting has over 36 million views and there are dozens of mirror posts all over the Internet!

Now, A Christmas Song (Ventriloquist Style)

Posted by Michael on December 19th, 2017

You know we love the ventriloquists at iTricks. You might remember Megan Piphus from her America’s Got Talent run a couple of years ago… she recently released this video featuring a modern Christmas classic.

Congratulations To Darci Lynne

Season two winner Terry Fator joined Darci Lynne Farmer on last night’s America’s Got Talent finale shortly before Ms. Farmer was crowned this season’s winner… the third ventriloquist to win the show in its 12 seasons. There were many talented performers on this season but we were pulling for this young lady around iTricks Tower Midwest as our #1 non-magic pick. What is kind of frightening is that Darci has only been doing vent work for about two years!

Congratulations, Darci Lynne.

No More Magic In AGT But…

Posted by Michael on September 20th, 2017

Last night saw the live finals for the 2017 season of America’s Got Talent. There aren’t any magic acts in the top ten this year, but 12 year old ventriloquist Darci Lynne is still a top contender for this year’s crown. And as we have always supported vent acts here at iTricks, she is who we are officially pulling for… even if some folks around iTricks Tower Midwest are pulling for comic Preacher Lawson!

We will find out who wins tonight on NBC (check your local listings).
