LAS VEGAS (Sept. 20, 2018) – Following another extraordinary season on NBC, last night at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, America’s Got Talent named close-up magician Shin Lim the winner of the sensational Season 13. Shin Lim will headline an exclusive engagement of America’s Got Talent Live, a stage show version of the NBC #1 rated television show of the summer, in Las Vegas Nov. 2 – 4 in the Paris Theater at Paris Las Vegas. The starring role in America’s Got Talent Live is in addition to the million-dollar prize Shin Lim won during the exciting live Season 13 finale. 

Lim mesmerized audiences with his close-up magic performances, which defied logic. Each week Lim’s performances became more nuanced and dazzling. Originally training as a concert pianist, Lim had a tough start to his journey through sleight-of-hand magic when he was diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome. He was faced with a choice between piano and magic but through painstaking hard work and perseverance, he is now the reigning world champion for close-up magic. A self-proclaimed “sleight of hand artist,” Lim performs carefully choreographed routines rather than pretending to defy the laws of physics. Combining dexterity, precision and grace, he has distilled a lifetime of training into a devious display of dancing digits. His finger moves are so masterful that the audience is left to wonder if what their eyes have seen is really possible.

Showcasing America’s Got Talent as the world’s premiere variety show, Shin Lim will headline the Las Vegas stage with guest Season 13 finalists, singer Courtney Hadwin, electric violinist Brian King Joseph, trapeze artists Duo Transcend and comedians Samuel J. Comroe and Vicki Barbolak.

With celebrity judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Howie Mandel, along with host Tyra Banks, “America’s Got Talent” has remained the No.1 show of the summer for 13 straight seasons.
