Mind2Mind, featuring James Harrington and Marina Liani, is a world-class, award-winning mentalist and Dubai Magician pair. The team enchants audiences with a broad range of mind reading and magical illusions designed to keep any audience engaged. They specialize in close-up and stage mind reading, which includes a variety of mental dexterity feats. This includes an uncommon type of mentalism known as 'Second Sight,' in which Marina is able to look through the eyes of others without the need for eyesight, technology, or amusing verbal codes.

They won the Golden Buzzer on 'Ukraine's Got Talent' and featured on 'Britain's Got Talent.' Marina is outside with Terry, and her first trick is to predict Sofia's phone's battery percentage. She manages to pull it off! The audience is then asked to jot down "powerful memories" on a sheet of paper. Heidi takes a recollection from the bag. She reads it, then focuses on it. Marina recounts a father holding a little child as they experience their first encounter with the water. And she gets it right.

"This is amazing," Simon exclaims. Sofia describes it as mysterious and spectacular. Heidi describes it as "wild." Howie loved the increased complexity, and the team received four yeses!
Despite the fact that the couple managed to leave everyone in the room with mainly dropped jaws, online followers were eager to come up with their own hypotheses.

First of the theories come from a fan who said: "The skeptic in me says there was something switched inside the wastebasket with the bag before she drew the envelope and again after the others were dumped out on the table. Or Heidi palmed the right envelope and switched it with the random one. #AGT."
