Piff The Magic Dragon America’s Got Talent Video: Neil Patrick Harris Uses Golden Buzzer For Magician — WATCH HERE!
Piff The Magic Dragon scored the Golden Buzzer advantage from “America’s Got Talent” guest judge Neil Patrick Harris on Tuesday. Check out the video below!
As Gossip Cop has reported, the 10th season of “AGT” has featured a brand-new Golden Buzzer, which each judge can use exactly once to send an act directly to live the shows at Radio City Music Hall. Judges Howard Stern, Howie Mandel, Mel B, and Heidi Klum all used their once-only pushes for contestants during the initial auditions. Now with the new “Judges’ Cuts” round, each panelist is bringing in a guest judge who can also use the Golden Buzzer once.
Stern selected Neil Patrick Harris to be his judging companion, and the actor was enamored with Piff. The rather unique contestant once again took the stage in a dragon costume, and mixed his unusual brand of magic and irreverent comedy. He brought Heidi Klum on stage to assist with his trick, and while we won’t spoil how it played out, he did sneak in a kiss on the lips with the supermodel.
Harris, who is known to be a huge magic fan and actually tried some on the Oscars earlier this year (to poor reviews), was so impressed, he hit his button with glee. Piff was as unfazed as ever, but did give the actor the sandwich he made on stage as a token of appreciation. As it was only halfway through the show, the rest of the acts that had yet to hit the stage were disappointed the button was now out of play.
It’s worth noting that a (very different) magician, Mat Franco, won last season, as Gossip Cop reported at the time. Check out the video below, and tell us if you think Piff deserved the Golden Buzzer! Note: Video no longer available.
