'AGT' Season 17: Fans crown Maxence Vire's magic act 'best one' on the show, ask for Golden Buzzer moment
Season 17 of 'America's Got Talent' has been welcoming acts from all over the globe, all of whom have one dream in common -- to pursue what they are passionate about, headline the 'AGT' show in Las Vegas and last, but not the least, bag the $1 million cash prize. But to do all of the above, they have to prove that they are the best of the best.
From Yu Hojin to Henry and Klauss and Siegfried and Joy, magic acts this season have been hitting it out of the ballpark. Taking to the stage in Episode 8 of this season, Maxence Vire introduced himself, telling the judges that he's a 32-year-old from Paris. He has been doing magic since 10 and explained that magic is his life.
When it came to his performance, Vire combined a whole lot of theatrics with his performance, involving all four judges in his performance. The entire panel was thoroughly invested and laughing all along the way, as were the audience. By the end of his performance, the audience and the judges, save for Simon Cowell, gave him a standing ovation. Sofia Vergara noted that he was 'brilliant', stating that the magic was fantastic and that Vire was funny as well. Heidi Klum noted that he ticked all the boxes, calling him funny and charming. Howie Mandel noted that he didn't know where it was going, but the act was funny. Simon Cowell called him 'annoying' but said that the audience loved him and that the magic itself was 'tres bien', which led to Vire getting four yeses.
Fans were just as impressed as the judges were. "Why couldn't there be a #GoldenBuzzer for him? #AGT" asked a fan. "That magic act on #AGT might have been the best one I have ever seen on the show. That was some damn good magic. #Magic" tweeted a fan. "This is the type of act that can win! Wow! #AGT" said a fan. "Wow...the magician was strange bigtime...but the magic was legit 😎👍 #AGT" noted another.
