The future of magic is from Winnipeg!
That’s the lesson the judges of Britain’s Got Talent learned on Monday night (May 26), when Darcy Oake, A Winnipeg-born illusionist, teleported on stage.
The magician began his appearance by performing the trick that got him into the semi-finals, which was conjuring two white doves from a single piece of flaming paper.
Darcy then sat down on a chair under a silk sheet, and later emerged as a member of the Britain’s Got Talent camera crew – all without the cameras ever training their eyes away from the young entertainer. How did he do it?
After wowing judges Simon Cowell, David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Amanda Holden, Darcy was selected for the finals this Saturday (May 31).
After receiving a standing ovation, the master of illusions took to Twitter to proclaim his excitement: “Making it to the finals of Britain’s Got Talent is a dream come true. Thank you for the votes and the love,” he wrote.
The winner of the talent-based competition series walks away with a cash prize of £250,000 or $455,000.
