Judges Horrified When Magician Swallows Dozens Of Blades, But Their Jaws Drop At Final Reveal.
Anyone who has ever been to a magic show knows that the best tricks are the ones that shock the audience so much, they simultaneously need to look away while not wanting to miss out on any of the action up on the stage. Recently on an episode of ‘Britain’s Got Talent,’ the audience was given a nail biting but extremely impressive experience during a magician’s performance on the show. TanBA is a 43-year-old man from Japan who has been a magician for the last 25 years. But his talent goes way beyond card tricks. When TanBA walked out on the stage, David Walliams asked him why he wanted to be on Britain’s Got Talent. The judges beam with pride when TanBA replies, “Because ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ is the best in the world!” Little did they know, their smiles would quickly turn to grimaces during TanBA’s performance. TanBA starts out tame, swallowing a blow up balloon and a paper. Then he walks down to the judges’ table with a razor blade in hand. Immediately the crowd was filled with horror at the thought of what TanBA might do with a razor blade. He hands a piece of paper to Simon Cowell and asks him to cut the paper with the razor blade. The audience can tell what is coming next, and it looks painful… yet, even through the horror, they don’t dare look away!
