“America’s Got Talent” winner Shin Lim can’t stop amazing people with his magic tricks.
During his appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Friday, the magician and illusionist stunned host Ellen DeGeneres with a new card trick.
He made her sign a 10 of Hearts card and magically made it appear at the top of the deck. Then, he asked her to fold it up and bite into it, at which point he signed a Queen of Spades card and did the same. Somehow, the signed 10 of Hearts card appeared in his mouth, while his card ended up wedged between DeGeneres’ teeth.
“You’re amazing,” DeGeneres told Lim after she was left speechless by his card trick. Earlier in the show, he performed a similar trick to the one he did on the finale of “America’s Got Talent,” leaving Wanda Sykes and Beth Behrs stunned.
The 26-year-old self-taught magician was crowned the winner of the talent show on Wednesday, edging out the Austria-based dance troupe Zurcaroh, who showed plenty of class by embracing the former pianist after host Tyra Banks named him champion. His prize was $1 million as well as a Las Vegas show residency.
When DeGeneres asked him what he would do with the $1 million prize money, the magician said he would like to buy a new car, put some of it in savings and donate some to cancer research given that some of his friends recently struggled with brain cancer.
