Shin Lim Agt Finale
He studied to be a concert pianist in college. But pain in his wrists–corporal tunnel–forced his to choose between music and magic. He chose magic. He starts off off at the piano.He tells his corporal tunnel story, pulling cards out of nowhere, igniting the sheet music which reveals a pack of cards. Tara helps out. She prefers the 9 of hearts. Shin produces a bunch of 9 of hearts cards. Then magically turns a 6 of hearts into a 9 of hearts. And then floating flying cards. He just made the act bigger. Smart. “You have been consistently great.” He says tonight he finally brought showmanship. “You could actually win the competition. Howie calls it a 1 million dollar act. Mel calls it “pure magic.” Heidi calls him one of the best close up magicians she’s every seen. She wants him to win! So do I. Shin says the act was new, he was a little nervous.
The 26-year-old magician is known for his card magic. He’s appeared on Penn & Teller: Fool Us, which led to international fame, and has toured internationally as a magician.
Lim’s first appearance on Fool us has earned over 50 million views, and led to an offer for him to appear on the show again. He is the only magician in the history of the series to fool Penn and Teller twice.

Kimberly Sue Kauffman Who else thinks he has amazing hair???? I absolutely loooove him! I can’t take my eyes off him. Such amazing talent! Definitely a Vegas act I would gladly pay to see.
Larry Goldman What is amazing to me is how many ppl comment on how they caught something after slowing down the video and watching his performance countless times…isn't this about watching a performance in real time like you would sitting in a theater and being amazed by his skill and showmanship? Last I checked, you can't slow down a performance while sitting in a theater, showroom, etc…its meant to be enjoyed at that moment and hopefully invoke an emotion that will last after leaving the venue. He's a million dollar act and worthy of paying to see him LIVE
Ginny Karpinski Brannan This guy's slight of hand is mind-boggling. We watch his every move and it must be "magic" because cards are changing from hand to pocket, from plastic bag out and back again, it's crazy!! Not a flaw in his performance to be seen!
