  • -We are joined right now by a very talented
  • young magician who just won
  • NBC's hit show "America's Got Talent."
  • Give it up for Shin Lim, everybody.
  • [ Drumroll ] [ Cheering and applause ]
  • Pleasure. Thank you for being here.
  • You are amazing.
  • I knew you were gonna win.
  • I swear. I called it.
  • I go, "This guy --" You've got it, man.
  • You won the $1 million. -Thank you, man.
  • -That's a big deal.
  • What happens now? What's the plan?
  • -I mean, I would love to have my own show,
  • in Vegas or wherever, and that would be just amazing,
  • to be able to perform it.
  • -All right. I mean, best of luck
  • -Thank you. -and we will come watch you.
  • You brought a trick for us tonight.
  • -Yes, I do. -Okay.
  • Am I involved? -Yeah.
  • Well, that's why you're sitting here.
  • -Okay, good. [ Laughter ]
  • Have I already done something? -Now,
  • -Okay. -usually, I would have you
  • select your favorite card or a card face-Up,
  • but maybe I know what your favorite card is
  • or something like that. It's really important
  • that I can't see the card at all, okay?
  • So we'll do it face-down.
  • Just point it in any direction.
  • -Which one's my favorite? -No, no, just point
  • to any direction, 'cause we're gonna do one at random.
  • -Sure. Right over here?
  • You sure? -Yeah.
  • -Your choice, so, you happy?
  • -Yeah. -All right, now,
  • I'm gonna look away. Take a look at the card.
  • -Okay. -Remember it.
  • -Yeah. -Don't forget it, Jimmy.
  • If you forget it, then the whole trick's over.
  • -Okay. -All right, cool.
  • [ Laughter ] All right.
  • -I'm watching you. -Now, cut the deck in half.
  • -Okay, here we go. -All right. You can either
  • keep it or do you want this one?
  • Doesn't matter. It's your choice;
  • it's your life. -It's my choice, my life.
  • -Yeah. What do you want?
  • -I don't know. I guess that one?
  • -That one right there? Take it; take it.
  • Go ahead, grab it. No, no. Grab the deck.
  • -Yeah, okay, yeah, okay.
  • -Now, hold it like this. -Uh-huh.
  • -All right. Can you take a couple o' cards
  • and bring it to the bottom? -Right.
  • Couple cards, bring it to the bottom.
  • -Very good. And then, can you take a couple cards
  • and put it on the table? -Uh-huh.
  • -Right. And then you can continue
  • to do the same thing. Cut to the bottom.
  • -Are you just teaching me how to shuffle?
  • -Yeah, yeah, yeah. [ Laughter ]
  • Do it again. Put it on top, yeah, again.
  • -Okay, yeah. -And then, just stop
  • whenever you want. We're all just --
  • Stop whenever you want. But it's your choice again.
  • -It's my choice; it's my life.
  • [ Laughter ]
  • All right, so. -You wanna stop there?
  • -Yes. -All right. Can you put the rest
  • over here. -Okay.
  • 'Cause we really don't need this.
  • Now, Jimmy, how many cards would you say is over here?
  • -I'm not you.
  • [ Laughter ] I don't know.
  • -I would say 20. -Yeah.
  • I'd say around there, yeah. -So there's
  • about a 40% chance that your card's in this pile.
  • -Uh-huh. -This half. Okay.
  • For the first time, what was your card?
  • It's okay if I know. It doesn't matter.
  • 'Cause I'm not gonna do anything sneaky, at this point.
  • -2 of spades. -2 of spades.
  • You shuffled the deck. You shuffled that pile.
  • -Yeah, and I am not touching anything since I set it.
  • -I'm not gonna touch anything, either.
  • Would it be impressive if that 2 of spades is in that pile?
  • -Yeah. It would. -I mean, that's like 40%.
  • But what if, somehow, you shuffled it to the top?
  • 2 of spades. [ Drumroll ]
  • [ Applause ] -How do you do this?
  • [ Laughing ] -Now, no, but, Jimmy.
  • I mean, maybe, maybe it was luck, right?
  • 'Cause it could've been luck, somehow,
  • that it came to the top. There's a probability.
  • So, this time, you grab the whole deck.
  • Do the exact same thing.
  • Grab a couple of cards on the top,
  • put it to the bottom, and do the same thing,
  • and then deal us a couple cards onto the table,
  • and you just stop whenever you want, okay?
  • -And just stop whenever I want? -Yeah, yeah.
  • -Yeah. -Shuffle to the bottom, yeah.
  • -There you go. That's good. -You're good there? All right.
  • So, now, this is even less. Now, you know, most magicians
  • would have your card go to the top, at this point,
  • but [cluck] that's not me.
  • We're gonna take it to the next level.
  • Think of any number between one and...15.
  • -One and 15, okay. I thought of one.
  • -All right. Just say it out loud, so we can count it down.
  • -13. -13, all right.
  • One, two, three, four, five,
  • six, seven, eight, nine, ten,
  • -[Chuckle] -[laughing] 11, 12, 13.
  • We'll put the rest of the cards over here.
  • So, Jimmy, we have 13 cards over here, okay?
  • -Yes. -Let's do this again.
  • You shuffled the whole deck. -Uh-huh.
  • -You then took a couple o' cards by random,
  • -[Laughing] -put into my hand.
  • -Yay! -You then thought of --
  • [ Laughter ] -You then thought of any number.
  • 13. -I thought of any number, yeah,
  • and I thought -- -Lucky number 13, right?
  • For some reason, at the 13th position...
  • [ Drumroll ]
  • Yeah...
  • -Whoa! [ Applause ]
  • -[laughs] Yes!
  • You're unbelievable!
  • -You know -- -How the heck is...?
  • -We'll try something else here.
  • -Oh, no. -One last, just thing, okay?
  • One last thing. 'Cause this is a simple trick.
  • We don't want to do anything too complicated.
  • Watch. [ Laughter ]
  • [ Blowing ]
  • Tell me, Jimmy:
  • Do you see the 2 of spades anywhere in the deck?
  • -I do not see the 2 of spades.
  • -Oh. That's really weird.
  • You know what happened when I blew on it?
  • Can you check your pocket, your inner jacket pocket,
  • [ Laughter ] right over there?
  • -This is bizarre. -You should feel something
  • in there. -This is bizarre.
  • -The right one. Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah.
  • I think it flew in there.
  • -In this pocket? -The inside pocket right there.
  • Do you feel something?
  • Oh, yeah. [ Drumroll ]
  • [ Laughter ]
  • -This is gonna be bizarre, dude.
  • [ Laughter ] Don't even --
  • [ Drumroll ] -Whoa!
  • -Oh, my goodness.
  • [ Cheering and applause ] [ Cymbals crashing ]
  • [ Outro plays ]
  • -We're not done yet. -What?
  • -We're not done yet. Take your first finger, your index finger.
  • Yeah, yeah. Come, sit down, sit down, yeah, okay.
  • -We're not done? -Yeah, no, no, we're not done.
  • -I got my money's worth. I'm good.
  • -Just put your index finger right over there.
  • Put your index finger pointed right over there, okay?
  • I want you to put all your focus on the 2 of spades. Okay.
  • [ Laughing delightedly ] -Ohhh!
  • -[Gasp] -Phew!
  • [ Cheering and applause ]
  • -Ow! -[Hissing]
  • -Yo. Yo. -Oh, yeah.
  • 2 of spades.
  • -[Laughing] [ Cheering and applause ]
  • [ Cymbals clashing, outro playing ]
  • Dude!
  • That's awesome!
  • What is going on?!
  • Shin Lim, everybody!
  • [ Cheering and applause ]
