As much as we dump on America’s Got Talent for treating magic badly, we give mad props to people who get it right. Ellen DeGeneres is one of those people: In the past, her “Magic Week” has featured some pretty great performers, from Justin Kredible to Shawn Farquhar.
This week, Mike Super kicks it off. The winner of the last decent show NBC had on magic, “Phenomenon,” is the first magician to make Ellen appear on stage during the show. Ellen’s website doesn’t say what other magicians are coming as part of Magic Week, but the opening effect was pretty slick and, like we said, Ellen has a great reputation. Enjoy:
