PASADENA, CALIFORNIA: After watching magician Yu Hojin's jaw-dropping act on the previous episode of 'America's Got Talent' Season 17 semi-finals, fans were convinced that nobody could top it. But looks like French magician Nicolas Ribs just did that.

With the hopes of winning 'AGT' crown to impress his daughter, Nicolas pulled out all stops to wow the judges and audience for his semi-finals act. He roped in host Terry Crews as his volunteer to help him with the trick. Nicolas presented a pile of play cards before him and asked him to pull out a random card and sign on it. After Terry signed the card, Nicolas put the card back in the deck shuffled it, and handed the deck to Terry. The magician then conjured the card from his computer screen, leaving everybody in the studio speechless.
