Aidan McCann, an AGT: All Stars candidate, has been doing magic performances in the UK.
Aidan is one of the rare AGT: All Stars candidates who have competed in more than one regional season of the program. He reached the Finals of Britain’s Got Talent Season 14 and the Semi-Finals of Ireland’s Got Talent Season 2. His audition on BGT comprised of magic feats that required the judges’ involvement. He took Alesha’s ring and made it vanish. He then delivered Simon a gift that included a watch with the back unscrewed and Alesha’s ring.
Aidan then made the ring disappear and reappearance connected to his own shoelace. Alesha Dixon was captivated by the young magician, and Simon predicted that Aidan would perform well on the program. Aidan’s next performance was broadcast live from his bedroom due to Covid-19 constraints. He requested that David choose a sketch from his hand. In front of the judges, the drawing he had picked appeared in the envelope. He then instructed him to color it in while Aidan was blindfolded; the color the judge put in matched the colored image Amanda was holding.
The young magician and prospective AGT: All Stars candidate then disclosed that he was dressed in the same colors as David. Aidan went to the Finals after winning the public vote. His second performance was a card trick in which Aidan requested David to choose a card, which wowed and won the judges’ hearts. The judges hailed him as a “little celebrity” who is “self-assured and confident,” which adds to his allure.
Aiden performed magic in Limitless in Vegas after his experience in the Irish talent competition, making him the youngest magician to ever perform in Vegas. In January 2020, he was featured on The Ellen Show with his own part Aidan’s Magic Corner. It included cameos by the Jonas Brothers, Colin Farrell, Emily Blunt, and Kalen Allen.
Following BGT, he had an appearance on BBC’s Blue Peter. However, because to Covid-19, he was unable to perform for two years, but he returned to the stage for the Blackpool Magic Convention Gala Night Show and the Ulster Magic Convention in Belfast. Aidan is poised to return to the talent show stage as part of AGT: All Stars, where he will be joined by a variety of incredible talents. Watch NBC and Peacock on January 2, 2023, at 8 p.m. ET to discover what happens when the magician returns to the stage.
