Cosentino Makes His AGT Premiere

Posted by Michael on February 5th, 2019

Cosentino, a runner up on Australia’s Got Talent, is one of those magic acts well known pretty much everywhere in the world except America. He changed that last night with this performance on NBC’s America’s Got Talent: The Champions featuring escape, flying crossbow bolts and fire! He was one of three magic acts featured (along with Colin Cloud and current AGT champion Shin Lim).

Only Shin Lim made it into the top three, beating out favorites such as Jackie Evancho, and won the vote of superfans to become the only magic act in next week’s America’s Got Talent: The Champions finals.

Colin Cloud On AGT: The Champions

Posted by Michael on February 5th, 2019

Colin Cloud was one of three magic related acts appearing on America’s Got Talent: The Champions last night. Shin Lim’s performance was the week’s official leak, but it was Colin who facilitated the other bit of leaked information about the episode… the return of a former judge. After host Terry Crews used his golden buzzer to put through a sand artist, there was only one other spot for advancement for the other nine competitors. Did any of the three magic acts continue on? We will fill you in a little later when we bring you Cosentino’s act!

Issy Simpson Kicks Off AGT: The Champions

Posted by Michael on January 29th, 2019

Issy Simpson was the very first act on last night’s America’s Got Talent: The Champions and the only magician of the night. Unfortunately, she was not one of the two acts continuing in the competition so magic remains unrepresented in the next round!

Canada’s Darcy Oake may have left the America’s Got Talent: Champions stage, but he is the subject of their latest behind the scenes video as he talks about levitating a supermodel.

Ryan Stock And AmberLynn Strike Back

Posted by Michael on January 22nd, 2019

Perhaps best known for a crossbow accident on live TV, daredevil magic duo Ryan Stock and AmberLynn returned to the stage on America’s Got Talent: Champions last night with this take on a classic sideshow stunt… and a repeat of the crossbow stunt that went so wrong before!

Jon Dorenbos was the only magician to make it into last night’s top three, but in the end he came in third and will not be continuing on in the competition.

Darcy Oake Takes The AGT Stage

Posted by Michael on January 22nd, 2019

Darcy Oake is from Canada, gained fame on Britain’s Got Talent and finally took the America’s Got Talent last night. He was the first of the magic acts to perform (along with Jon Dorenbos and Ryan Stock and AmberLynn) and did a kind of de-constructed version of classic stage levitation with judge Heidi Klum (and Howie Mandell as, well, basically furniture). After Howie used his golden buzzer for young singer Angelica Hale, that left only one slot to continue… we’ll let you know who went on to the next round a little later when we share Ryan and AmberLynn’s performance.

Piff Returns To AGT

Posted by Michael on January 15th, 2019

Piff the Magic Dragon returned to the America’s Got Talent stage last night with dreams of winning to repair his relationship with Mr. Piffles… but, sadly, it was not to be. Two weeks and still no magic acts have gone through…
