Magical Bones has become the third act to make it through to the final of Britain’s Got Talent after winning the judges’ vote.
The panel whittled down Saturday’s acts to their top three, which consisted of Magical Bones, X1X Crew and Sirine Jahangir.
The 38-year-old dancer and magician impressed David Walliams, Alesha Dixon and Ashley Banjo who all voted him their favourite act of the night, meaning he got straight through to the final.
When asked who current head judge Amanda Holden would have voted, for, she admitted she would have chosen Sirine over Magical Bones as her best act of the night.
Magical Bones shared his excitement, telling the judges: ‘I’m genuinely speechless, I don’t know what to say. Just thank you guys, thank you so much – you make dreams come true.’
When asked by hosts Ant and Dec whether he had anything planned for his performance in the final, Magical Bones said he didn’t want to think too far ahead but had ‘something special in mind’ for it.
Like his first audition, Magical Bones had channelled Henry Box Brown, a 19th century slave from Virginia who mailed himself to Philadelphia where slavery was abolished.
Henry eventually travelled to England where he became a hugely successful magician and showman, and Magical Bones tried out an illusion Henry would have performed, called The Great Door Mystery.
He stunned the judges when a woman in a wedding dress appeared inside the box he had just shown to be empty, before showing how the trick was done.
However, the real trick was when he appeared to teleport his girlfriend, who he hadn’t seen since lockdown began as she and their son were in Canada, from a ‘live’ video link to appearing inside the box instead.
Ashley Banjo was left open-mouthed at the reveal, saying: ‘That is how you elevate from the auditions to the live shows, that is it right there.
‘It’s very rare that I will ever say this but I feel that I see an act that is complete, that has everything – creativity, personality, swag, innovation, presentation.
‘I feel like you, for me so far, in the live shows have set the bar, straight up.’
Britain’s Got Talent airs on Saturdays from 8pm on ITV.
