Tom London stunned the judges with a math-fueled magic trick during “America’s Got Talent” auditions on Tuesday’s show. Check out the video below!

Before taking the stage, London explained he’s had a “fascination” with magic since he was just 3 years old. He was also very drawn to computers and math. “I realized that I could create something that’s never been seen in the world. I’m going to do the impossible,” he teased.

In front the crowd, London further said, “It’s always been my dream to create the best magic show Vegas has ever seen, that people would travel from around the world to see.” For his act, he first asked the audience to hold up their cell phones, which somehow all blinked red and blue, and had Simon Cowell choose three people with red lights to come on stage in an attempt to show how everyone is “connected on a far deeper level.”

One was asked how many number one selling artists Cowell has on his record label, another had to estimate how many millions of records the Spice Girls sold, and the third guessed what year Heidi Klum began modeling. Tyra Banks then used a calculator and an equation to put the number values together. A video showed London correctly predicted the total hours before his audition. But he wasn’t done yet. All of the digits actually had a connection to the judges, which Gossip Cop won’t spoil, but suffice to say, the aspiring star received a standing ovation.

Mel B said, “I am speechless. I am so amazed, and you’re really kinda hot, too, which helps. But it was just mind-blowing.” Klum praised, “I really love what you just did.” She appreciated that the magic wasn’t a showy “razzle-dazzle” style, noting, “It was very normal, and I like that about you.”

“You’re amazing,” commended Howie Mandel. “This is what I love about this show. I love the variety. I love seeing things I’ve never seen before. You’re really good.” And Cowell said, “You’ve taken something that’s perceived as old-fashion into something that’s really current and ahead of it’s time. I think this is one of the best acts we’ve seen today.”

With that kind of feedback, London declared as he left the stage, “This is the beginning for me.” Watch the video below!
