Is it me or are there some just superb acts on BGT these days? I confess I don't usually watch the show but certainly the likes of Richard Jones last year, and now Neils Harder, DNA, Issy Simpson, and Josephine Lee are certainly showing that magic is not only alive but kicking in all the right places!

Agree Paul. This series has been rather good so far. Thought the young lady the other week was excellent.. So wouldn't mind one of those boxes. 8)

YouTube has all the magic acts mentioned so far.

Also on TV recently were Penn and Teller on The One Show and Richard Jones on ITV's Weekend last Sunday morning.

Japanese magician TanBA certainly stirred things up, along with the audience and judges I was cringing as he ate those razor blades! The balloon swallow seemed to be quite ordinary, most of us know ways to do this even if we don't actually perform it. However when the balloon came back at the end I was as gobsmacked as everyone else. Many magicians swallow balloons but this is the first time I've seen one come back especially after a lot of other throat activity!

Small point, the show is called 'Britain's Got Talent' so why were there so many (excellent) non-British acts? Perhaps it should just be called 'Got Talent'? :D
