AGT Season 13 Winner Shin Lim

Aside from his one-of-a-kind tricks, there's another reason why the alway-impressive magician Shin Lim stands out amongst his fellow America's Got Talent winners. He's the only Act to ever win the show twice in consecutive order: First during Season 13 and next on AGT: The Champions. 

How to Watch

Watch the Season 19 premiere of America’s Got Talent Tuesday, May 28 at 8/7c on NBC and next day on Peacock

“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,” Lim told People. "I owe everything to AGT. I'm pretty much an AGT fan forever now."

Lim has since appeared on Ellen, The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon, and The Kelly Clarkson Show. And you can currently catch his mind-blowing illusions and card tricks at his Las Vegas Mirage Hotel residency, Shin Lim: LIMITLESS. But for now, check out some of his most memorable AGT moments, below.
