10-Year-Old Shocks Judges With Magic Trick

April 9th, 2019

Magic tricks are some of the most entertaining things in the world to watch.

Many of the best magic tricks include cards. There are so many variables that come with card tricks, it must not be easy for people to learn. Yet, many magicians know an astounding number of card tricks.

Even a little 10-year-old knows how to show off a good card trick!

Did you ever watch Britain’s Got Talent? If you did, chances are you know who Issy Simpson is. She was on the show during the season in 2017 to show off her magic tricks. Her talent was so good, she made it all the way to the end and came in 2nd place.

When America’s Got Talent: The Champions began, the premise of the show was to bring back the best of the best. That meant many contestants from the Got Talent programs returned to the stage to get a second chance.

Issy learned how to do magic tricks from her grandfather. When she auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent, Simon Cowell told her that her grandpa was a magician. He called what she did “real-life Harry Potter.”

In fact, she even got a phone call from the real Harry Potter himself, actor Daniel Radcliffe. Even though she didn’t win BGT, Issy was confident about her skills on her return.

For her audition for America’s Got Talent: The Champions, the 10-year-old had Simon extremely excited to see what she had prepared for them.

Issy was able to combine magic and reading for her performance and it was quite the show! The judges of AGT often love card tricks and this was no different. Howie Mandel watched in total awe as Issy managed to pull off her incredible trick.

The video has gotten over 3.6 million views on YouTube. With over 1,900 comments, it would seem many people truly enjoyed watching Issy’s magic trick. One YouTube commenter wrote:

I like this girl, her magic is excellent, as good as any adult magician. It is just a shame she did the same act as BGT, but I blame her management /agent for that, she is only 10 and has the same agent as Daniel Radcliffe / Harry potter, they should have come up with a brand new act.
