Shin Lim, the winner of America’s Got Talent thirteenth season, visited The Tonight Show to perform sleight of hand card tricks for host Jimmy Fallon on Friday (Sept. 28).

The suave magician began his performance by having Fallon pick a card from a facedown deck. His choice: a two of spades. After putting the deck back together, Lim has Fallon split the deck in two and shuffle his half. After Fallon stops, Lim reveals that the two of spades is the top card of Fallon’s deck.

Lim follows up his first trick with one in which Fallon chooses a random number. Fallon picks thirteen, and Lim reveals that his card is the thirteenth card in the newly shuffled deck. The magician then blows on the cards, making Fallon's end up in his inside jacket pocket.

During Lim’s final trick, he has Jimmy put his finger on his card. When he peels it off, he finds that the two of spades has jumped from the card to a tattoo on Lim’s chest. Smoke comes out of Lim's mouth, and the original card comes with it.

As the winner of America’s Got Talent, Shin Lim received a million dollars and a show in Las Vegas. Check out his Tonight Show appearance below.
