‘America’s Got Talent’ Mind Reader Blows the Judges’ Minds With Tweet Trick (Video)

How did he do it?

Magician Colin Cloud did a mind-reading trick in the “America’s Got Talent” semifinals Tuesday night that was so in-depth that it’s difficult to poke holes in it.

Cloud had asked the “America’s Got Talent” Twitter followers for the names of a celebrity, city and object. He said that thousands of people sent in tweets with possible combinations, so his chances of getting the exact three were one in 43 quadrillion.

He then printed them all out, gave them to members of the audience, who mostly confirmed that none of the tweets repeated. He then asked judges Simon Cowell and Howie Mandel to pick some random ones. Then Mel B and Heidi Klum chose one specific tweet out of the ones Cowell and Mandel brought back to the table. This helped to truly randomize the trick.

Then Cloud revealed the second part of his trick, where he knew they were going to pick the following: “Ellen, cheese, Rome.” Of course he could just say he knew, but he had a video on hand to show just how far in advance he knew.

We don’t want to spoil it for you, but Cloud goes undercover to insert himself into the lives of the judges and ultimately prove that he knew ahead of time.

Since magic can be explained and mind-reading isn’t real it’s easy to tell how he actually did it, but… we got nothing, sorry.
