When magician Eric Jones auditioned on America’s Got Talent, Season 12, Simon Cowell said his act could be more dramatic. For his second performance, and in front of guest judge Chris Hardwick (host of The Wall, Talking with Chris Hardwick, Talking Dead), Eric again approaches the judges desk with a deck of playing cards. This time he asks Hardwick to sign one of the cards and then makes it disappear.
The dramatic part comes when Jones pulls out a hammer and asks Simon to move to the other end of the judges desk. Yes, Jones hits and smashes Simon’s buzzer where the card Hardwich had signed is hiding. Simon Cowell can’t help but to be impressed with the dramatic act. (Video below.) America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
