'America's Got Talent: The Champions': Mentalist Oz Pearlman's magic with numbers leaves judges in disbelief
On 'America's Got Talent: The Champions,' Oz Pearlman was praised for his showmanship and mad mind-reading skills
Just when you thought Oz Pearlman couldn't get any better, he went and upped his skills another time on 'America's Got Talent: The Champions.' His uncanny mind-reading skills left judges -- Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Alesha Dixon, Howie Mandel -- speechless.
He stepped on the stage, wrote the word 'moment' on a whiteboard and went on about how his piece would all be about the moments while sharing takeaways from his life-changing maiden appearance on the show five years ago, which, he claimed, turned his life around completely.
The mentalist began with tasking the crowd to hold up a random bill, one of which host Terry Crews randomly picked and sealed in an envelope. As for the next steps, Alesha, Heidi, and Howie were made to think of a moment from their lives that they thought were special while Oz guessed each of them correctly. Later, he asked both the ladies to add up the dates that their moments fell on -- 58209061 -- and requested Howie to do the same. When he added the numbers, it gave 74, 241, 041, which was the unique serial number of the dollar bill that Simon carefully sealed in the envelope.
That was not the end of it. When he wrote the number out, he turned the board around and it read 'moment' and that's when he drew the curtains on his act with the exact same words he began with. The judges' panel was extremely impressed with his showmanship and confidence and cleared him for the next round.
Meanwhile, fans cannot get enough of his act, leaving a lot of them still trying to wrap their heads around what they saw.
"He’s a wizard. Send him to hogwarts #AGT," one wrote. While another posted: "Just tryin to figure out how they pulled it off bc I don’t believe people can read others mind!" "This guy is awesome. I thought so when he was on AGT the first time.. he blew everyone away tonight," expressed another viewer. "#AGT #AGTChampions Alesha says Oz’s stage confidence and presentation were amazing. Heidi says he really is the real wizard of oz. Simon says there are no words. He says if you don’t believe in magic after that, he doesn’t know what to say.
