Magician Shin Lim Wins 'America's Got Talent' Season 13
It was in the cards for Shin Lim.
The sleight-of-hand wizard won Season 13 of “America’s Got Talent” on Wednesday, becoming just the second magician to do so.
“I can’t stop smiling,” he told “Entertainment Tonight” afterward in the clip above. “I don’t think I’ve ever smiled this much in my life.”
The Massachusetts-based performer consistently dazzled judges and viewers with his card tricks. He turned in another mind-blower the previous night, while revealing how carpal tunnel syndrome dashed his piano-playing hopes and turned him to magic.
“You’re the only one that makes me believe that magic is possible,” judge Heidi Klum said, per People. Yep, his stuff is that amazing.
Acrobatic dance group Zurcaroh finished second, and electric violinist Brian King Joseph was third.
Mat Franco was the only other magician to win “AGT,” in 2009, Billboard noted.
Lim won $1 million and a headlining show at Paris Las Vegas.
And here’s his winning moment:
