The Champions: Magician Shin Lim Wins America’s Got Talent (VIDEO)
The season 13 of America’s Got Talent, 27-year-old magician Shin Lim was crowned best in the world. Lim makes history as the first contestant to win two Got Talent franchises in consecutive order.
According to Shin Lim,
It’s crazy, to be honest. I still have to pinch myself. First winning AGT was crazy to me, but winning Champions was even more crazy. It’s very overwhelming and super exciting.
To be honest, when I’m watching back all the acts, my fiancée Casey and I are like, ‘How the hell did I win this?’ Everyone is so good, if not better. Some of the acts were better than me,” he says. “I don’t think I can call myself the champion of champions because I don’t really believe it. I mean, Deadly Games is throwing knives and I’m just doing card tricks! I kind of don’t believe it, but I guess I just have to get used to it.
Just five months ago, viewers watched Lim’s dreams come true when he was named the season 13 winner. Reflecting on his “crazy” trajectory, Lim says winning Champions was “almost like déjà vu.”
The star adds, “Because they were shot so close to each other, it felt like I was reliving the process all over again. All the stress from AGT and then Champions, I feel so relieved it’s all over.”
