Jon Dorenbos “America’s Got Talent Holiday Spectacular” Video – Watch New Magic Trick!
Jon Dorenbos was among the “American’s Got Talent” favorites to participate in the show’s first-ever “Holiday Spectacular,” which aired on Monday. Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, Dorenbos competed during season 11 of the NBC competition, which aired earlier this year. During the Judge Cuts round, he was Ne-Yo’s Golden Buzzer pick. Like the rest of the judges, the singer saw something magical in the contestant, and it was that magic that led Dorenbos to a third-place finish in September.
Dorenbos took up magic as a kid, while trying to cope with family tragedy. As he pursued a career in football, the athlete continued to hone his craft on the side. He’s been with the Philadelphia Eagles as a long snapper since 2006, but spends his time off the field mesmerizing with card tricks and other mind-bending stunts.
Last month, Dorenbos signed a new deal with the Eagles for a contract to stay with the team through 2019. Just last week, however, he was sidelined by a wrist injury that required surgery. Fortunately, his appearance on the “AGT” special was already taped, and actually took place in front of some of his team mates. And you better believe he wowed once again. Watch below!
