Mentalist Colin Cloud on America’s Got Talent tonight

September 12, 2017

“Forensic mind reader” Colin Cloud is the last magician standing in America’s Got Talent, and he’ll be appearing in tonight’s show. He just squeaked through the semifinals after a rather scattered performance. Check it out below to see what we mean.

There is a lot going on in this routine; too much for some of the judges to follow, in fact, including the ones onstage. Then again, ping-ponging back and forth between subjects without giving the audience much time to soak in the trick is kind of his style. His performance on the Judge Cuts was quite similar, as he started with Mel then quickly left her hanging as he switched to Howie before finally coming back to her. 

Colin seems like he might have a bit of Eric Jones syndrome: clearly very talented, but a bit wobbly when it comes to stitching the performance together in a way that lets the audience really appreciate the craftsmanship that’s happening in front of them. Good luck tonight, Colin! Maybe…maybe don’t lick anyone this time, though.
