Aidan McCann from Maynooth, a semi-finalist on this year's Ireland's Got Talent, impressed Ellen with his card tricks.

"I've been doing magic for four years now, I started off with magic kits like magic sets, and then I started doing card magic," Aidan told Ellen.

As a surprise, America's Got Talent magician Shin Lim invited Aidan to appear as a special guest in his magic show in Las Vegas.

Aidan is a third class student in St Mary’s Boy School in Maynooth. 

“Aidan has always loved magic, he started practising himself when he was about 5 or 6 years old with fun, simple tricks and loved nothing more than putting on little magic shows outside for the neighbours or putting a trick in his school coat pocket so he could show his friends on lunch break,” mum Noella told the Leader.
