Jewish Illusionist Act Advances to ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ Final
A duo of Jewish illusionists have advanced to the upcoming “Britain’s Got Talent” final, the UK’s Jewish Chronicle reported on Tuesday.
On the hit show’s live semi-final on Monday, Andrew Murray and Darren Sarsby — who together form the magic act DNA — performed a “mind-reading” trick involving a deck of cards and a dictionary. The illusion was a follow-up to their previous audition in which they correctly predicted a contact listed in the cellphone of Amanda Holden, one of the show’s judges.
Murray and Sarsby said, “The fact we’re the first act who got through via the public vote does give us a lot of confidence. We’ve worked really hard on the act and we hope people get behind us again. It’s really given us a boost.”
Fifteen-year-old singer Kyle Tomlinson also advanced on Monday to the June 4 final.
