“America’s Got Talent” 2016 Golden Buzzer

After giving the audience a brief glimpse into his family’s background – his aunt who had raised him like her own son had fought a lot to get the custody of her sister’s children – Jon started his act.

To make sure that he was in no way deceiving the audience, he had got an extra-big stack of cards printed. “So you said that you gotta make this show bigger so boom!” announced Jon humorously and held up the enlarged deck of cards, drawing giggles and laughter from the very beginning of his act.

After Ne-Yo had picked a card from a face-down pack of cards, Jon offered “Do you wanna keep this or change your mind?”

“I wanna change my mind,” said Ne-Yo.

“You are that guy, okay!” said Jon.

After Ne-Yo seemed satisfied with his choice Jon closed his eyes and let him show the audience and the camera that it was a 5 of spades. After that Jon proceeded to draw the card that Ne-Yo had selected on a notebook but drew the wrong one.

After a collective “ooohhhh” from the audience, who thought that Jon might just have goofed up and lost his chance to make it into the Live Shows, a composed Jon turned the drawing of the card into the sketch of a stack of cards and declared that Ne-Yo’s card was inside that deck.

“See that? See what I mean? See what I did there?” said a mischievous Jon as he fist-bumped Simon Cowell.

After another small joke, Jon held up the notebook in front of an amused panel of judges and the audience. In what can only be described as inexplicable, the 5 of spades rose up from the sketch that Jon had drawn! As Ne-Yo felt the page of the notebook, the 5 of spades seem to have magically become a part of the sketch itself!

A baffled Ne-Yo asked, “Can I do something?” and then hit on the Golden Buzzer as the crowd erupted into cheers, reports

“America’s Got Talent” 2016 Live Shows begins on 26th July, reports Bleeding Green Nation.
