Henry Richardson is 15 years old and hails from New York. He appears on America’s Got Talent to impress the judges with a card trick and he says that watching AGT is what actually inspired him to get into magic. His goal is to show his gift to “as many people as possible” and to make them happy with his magic. And, he succeeds. Checkout the trick in the below video clip.
Now, if you’re wondering how Richardson did the above card trick, you can check out the below video, which reveals that ins and outs of the trick.
Richardson refers to himself as a “Professional Harry Potter”, but he isn’t the only magician on the show this season. There has been a mind-reader named Colin Cloud, who has been exciting to watch. He uses criminal profiling to help with his “magic”. A magical escape artist named Demian Aditya nearly died, almost crushed by tons of heavy sand. There has also been Will Tsai, who is a magician and visualist. It may be tough for Richardson to make it to the end of the competition this season.
This season’s judges on the show include Mel B, Simon Cowell, Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum, with Tyra Banks as host.
