Young Irish magician wows Ellen DeGeneres

A young Irish magician stunned audiences in America after he appeared on the Ellen Show to show off his skills.

Aidan McCann will be known to some Irish people after he competed in the Ireland’s Got Talent series, and made it through to the semi-finals.

Young Irish magician wows Ellen DeGeneres

In 2019, the nine-year-old trickster was invited to perform by chat queen Ellen DeGeneres on her primetime show.

The Kildare youngster wowed the audience with a series of tricks involving playing cards, DVD cases and cinema tickets.

The young charmer even threw a few compliments Ellen’s way, by praising the movie Finding Dory, which of course was voiced by the host.

He was also very modest, admitting that even though he has been practicing magic since he was five, there are still a few tricks he can’t do – because his hands are too small!”

Ellen was quick to reassure Aidan that that won’t always be the case.

You will have to watch the video to see Aidan’s sorcery, but it is safe to say that he had both Ellen and her audience eating out of the palm of his hand.

Although it wasn’t just Aidan handing out the surprises, as Ellen had her own treat up her sleeve for the young magician.

She asked him if he has any favourite magicians and he told her he was a massive fan of Canadian Shin Lim.

Ellen then revealed a video from the man himself, and he had a very special invitation for Aidan to join him at one of his upcoming Las Vegas shows.

Take a look at Aidan’s appearance on Ellen’s show below.
