  • -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 ]
