Over the weekend, magician Will Tsai dazzled the audience and judges on “America’s Got Talent” with a trick that you’ll have to see to believe — though your eyes still won’t believe it.
Taiwan News provides a bit of background info on Tsai who was born in Taiwan, but immigrated to Canada with his family when he was 15. In Canada, life wasn’t easy for Tsai and he had to pick up three part-time jobs to help his family pay the bills. But one day, he stumbled upon a street magic show which inspired him to become a magician.
Before his performance on “America’s Got Talent,” Tsai said that he hoped the show would be a “turning point” for his life after spending the last 13 years of life training himself in the art of magic to become good enough to step foot on the stage. Afterward, Simon Cowell said that Tsai had just performed the best magic act in the show’s history.
For his trick, Tsai used some NT$10 coins as the main prop, making them disappear and reappear as if by… magic.
Seriously though, how’d he do that?
