You Won't Believe Anna DeGuzman's Bizarre Wine Glass Magic Trick: See the Video
The America's Got Talent Season 18 runner-up completely fooled her friends.
Anna Deguzman has nerves of steel.
On October 16, the America's Got Talent Season 18 Runner-Up posted some footage of her vacationing in St. Tropez, France, with some pals. While at dinner, she did something totally metal. She held up a wine glass — to apparently offer a toast — but then promptly bit into it without hesitation while everyone at the table gasped.
But don't worry, it was just a magic trick!
"Love that my friends always let me practice new magic stunts on them. even when they are least expecting it. 🍷😱," she said in a caption.
You can catch the stunt in a video featured on the third slide of her post, which shared plenty of photos and videos from her dreamy getaway.
Anna Deguzman on America's Got Talent
The 24-year-old New Jersey native was the first female magician to make it to second place of AGT. During her mind-blowing Audition, she told the Judges that she had been practicing magic for around five years, and started off with YouTube tutorials. Then, she pulled off seriously impressive moves where she manipulated her fingers to demonstrate seemingly impossible card tricks. The act earned her a "Yes" vote from all four of the Judges, moving her on to the Live Shows.
There, she invited the Judges to pick cards from a deck. The problem? The Judges couldn't quite remember their selections. Despite this, Deguzman still managed to pull off an amazing performance.
"The Judges are unpredictable, but that's why we have them," she told NBC Insider. "It's to make sure that the magic is real and authentic, and I think it just goes to show that something can go wrong... I think what is real for me is that in theory we're supposed to know how everything works, but what makes it fun as a performer is having spectators who are seeing it for the first time. Reliving the magic for the first time and getting that sense of wonder back because that's what keeps it exciting to perform."
Then, for her Finale show performance, she used cards to somehow predict the exact date and time of the of the moment.
"That was the quickest I've ever come up with something. I think it is one of the best Acts I've ever come up with in my life. Because it needed to be a million dollar act. I wanted everyone, even people watching at home to be involved. Which is really hard," Deguzman also told us after rehearsal.
