Henry Richardson on America's Got Talent
Henry Richardson made a splash on America's Got Talent, performing a card transposition that then intersected with a mentalism effect and an item in an impossible location. Not only was his segment the first one broadcast on the June 27 "audition" episode, but his segment was "leaked" ahead of the show's broadcast that week as part of AGT's promotion campaign. His performance was enthusiastically received by the judges who all voted "Yes" on his "audition." Check out the link to see his performance. Henry is 15 year-old who is part of the Society of Young Magicians group which meets monthly at Tannen's.
