America Got It Right: Shin Lim wins AGT

We at BestEntertainmentReviews.com are very happy that Shin Lim won America’s Got Talent. We did a little voting over the season and Shin Lim dominated our AGT ballots when he performed.

Many of the competitors displayed solid talent, Shin clearly had a polish and skills that make a winning Las Vegas act. Perhaps most importantly, he was a singular act. His future and talent rely on his knowledge and skill alone. We would love to see him team with runner-up Zurcaroh.  We also like Zurcaroh very much, but they are a vision and a talent of the moment. Sure, the organizer can keep bringing in new talent, but they are more a production like Cirque du Soleil than a singular talent.  BestEntertainmentReviews would love to see the group acts get their own show with AGT concentrating on individual or duet acts.

See Shin’s AGT performance:

Shin Lim will headline an exclusive engagement of America’s Got Talent Live, a stage show version of the NBC show in Las Vegas Nov. 2 – 4 in the Paris Theater at Paris Las Vegas. In addition to headlining this, Shin also won the million-dollar prize for Season 13. 

Those who watch Penn & Teller: Fool Us, already knew of Lim’s nuanced and puzzling performances. Lim originally trained as a concert pianist, but a carpal tunnel syndrome diagnosis left him with a tough choice between piano and magic.  He thinks of himself as a “sleight of hand artist” in carefully choreographed routines.

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