Srinivasa Rao Bandaru : Shin Lim made all the singers disapper with his magic.

MoneyGrowersPH : i still have no idea wtf just happened.

Crow : If you look closely you can see that I have no clue how he did that

Final Scene : i'm so glad he won and not another dumb singer with a sad story

Yoshida Yui : The real magic here is non singer winning the competition.

اTempest ا : He keeps touching his hair Maybe his hair is made of cards Edit:285 likes woah

Tsetsi : He looks like a young Asian version of Michael Jackson...

PJay : Shin Lim? More like i dropped my chin.

riya : if you think you are good at something, know that there's an asian out there better than you at it

karasuu : If you watch closely at 0.25 speed, you'll notice that you still have no idea wtf just happened.

qiaomei zhang : Me: I swear the next thing I see is the pictures on the card morphing *chuckle *Shin Lim makes the 6 of hearts morph into 9 of hearts Me: Oh ok then

Sesto Sili : he has tons of card decks in his hair and every time he touches through his hair he picks some up...

Promas Zanda : You can always spend your time trying to expose a man with a trick up his sleeve but this guy Shin got too many of them. Super talented! Congrats on the win!

T3WGaming : To everyone trying to say that the table is the gimmick: You're not too far off, but it's not the table that's the trick. The specific mat shown also isn't the gimmick. I'm not going into any specifics, but Shin probably told the producers beforehand to pick the 9 of Hearts so the trick would work correctly. But even so, the slight of hand is amazing in this. Even if you know the trick itself, it would still take years to perfect it to this kind of level. A trick can be common knowledge but the real talent is performing it so well that it could impress people who know the ins and outs of the trick itself. I've followed Shin for years now and even bought The Dream Act he did on Penn and Teller to fool them the first time. I know all the tricks he used in that act, and there are no uncommon gimmicks involved. I even with this act, I only saw one major gimmick. The smoothness of his acts are what's impressive and why he won. Everyone knows the "I picked your card out of the deck" trick but why do you think there are so many variations of the same trick? There are amateur magicians doing a simple pull from the deck, to professionals who can find your card then make every card in an unsealed deck that card with its name written in sharpie on the side of it. You get the point. The point is, it's not about knowing the trick or not. It's about how smooth he did it. I've been doing card magic for over a decade and still can't imagine ever being on the level Shin Lim is. He truly is one of the best magicians out there and hs fundamentally changed the way the world sees card magic. Gone are the days of old card magic where the tricks are not flashy or visually stunning, which is a disappointment to an extent. But in comes a new era of magic where everything is very visual and when done correctly can really make the spectator feel truly amazed. It's a whole new level, and I'm excited to see where Shin and even magic in general will go from here.

And Siq : Matt Franco: I'm the best magician! Look at my teleporting trick! Shim Lim: Hold my beer!

Kenneth Tang : He is attractive and handsome, but, somebody explain wtf his hair is going on?

Tapsu : I’m a shin lim fan so do not hate me after i say this Did he actually miss the timing at 4:19 lol 😂

Xspose Gawd : 1:21 “what do you see” I instantly thought of karate kid

Brandon Wong : Shin: Which card do you want? Her: the 9 of spades. Shin: ...are you sure? Cuz I just bought like 200 9 of hearts cards. Haha

Tiffany : I remember when he first came on to AGT my mom told me to change the channel bc card Magic’s stupid and look at him now

Y Xin : I figured it out!!!!!soo he He just put the doohickie around the watchamacallit then the the thingamabob went thru the loopy thingy and kazaaamm...

ReelGirl 8 : Everything about this performance is breathtaking: the setting, the music, the assistant, the card tricks. But, for me, the young man with the crazy hair and graceful hands is the most breathtaking of all.😘

Kampai Anime : Shin Lim the last cardbenders

Carl : seems too OTT, prefered his first audition

之唇天 : Oh.. his level of skills is so smooth. It's a leisure watching this. Just like watching someone who can dance so well with tons of hard work and training. Wonderful, my eyes enjoyed so much.

alex O : FACT: Americans knows how to vote. PERIOD.

miimika : You know what. I just. I give up. Yeah I just. Bye. This is too good. Just. Bye.

Nina de Lisboa : Finally wasn't a singer to win. He deserves and I applaud him standing

2vain4u : the hans zimmer of card tricks

Enrique Shane : Welp. The way he perform his trick is the real deal. Imagine a magician being emotionless, poetless, and just card deck 😂😂

Scope951 : For those of you wondering the name of the second song that starts at 2:55 is the Planet Earth II theme by Hans Zimmer. If you haven’t watched Planet Earth, go watch it now. You’ll be left even more speechless than when you watch Shin Lim’s performances

KaLion 83 : Shin Lim is the best magician ever!!! That 6 turning into the 9 was out of this world!!!! 🤯🤯🤯

Adam Alvares : I would never shake his hand for fear that he would make my hand disappear

Your Local Car Guy : There’s no way he could have used any regular magician skills to change that 6 to a 9. No possible way

Mmm kay : Wow, his hands are pretty❤

Emma Wylie : Have you ever seen food boy. That is literally shin lim but with cards instead of food Baha

Viet Lingo : He worth the win as time and efforts he has spent for.

Kucing Malaya : Seriously no clue, black magic

Naj Rey : You've been tricked!!!! but not me. I'm just gonna believe him if he performs on any table..

Ảo Thuật Trẻ Hà Nội : The first music/song name is VALERIAN and the City of a Thousand Planets soundtrack - Vitaliy Zavadskyy The second music/song is Planet Earth 2

jj chapoteau : At 2:38 something pops out of the black mat. You can see it in between his left pointer and middle finger. I'm sure these things look like simple cards and mats but they are probably on some Tony Starks level of technology full of censors and what not.

Alaa Aina : I don't like him. He's attractive, charismatic, confident, actually good at magic, AND he can play the piano? Yup, definitely don't like him.

BenCoolGuy1 : #mindblown. Unreal, he is a fully fledged wizard, bottom line.

june. : he's good, but still makes me feel uncomfortable

satrsmndri : Hints: A dark BLACK card mat, Distortion by Wayne Houchin, invisible thread with assistants.

Jeffrey Johnson AKA ShadoWolf : I’m pretty sure shin instantly got a girlfriend from the audience on his very first performance on AGT 😂

Muhammad Danish Azfar Saharudin : Whaterver tou do, *DON'T REVEAL OR EXPLAIN THE MAGIC*

iship_it :3 : When I first saw this my jaw literally dropped and I started screaming. HOW THE HECK DOES HE DO THAT!!!

The absolute cube : Omg he's so handsome and so talented❤his bangs
