Its not a great feeling, but of course not everyone who enters can go through Smile that's just the nature of the show. I also unfortunately didn't make the cut for the top 21. Still was a cool experience though.

so amira
can you walk us throught the process?
you did get directly with the main judges or you saw the producers?
what did you perform?
how was their reaction?
will you try again?

A magician won in Sweden,
not that far of a stretch for a mentalist

Only if you arent interesting, charming nor engaging enought
would be a stretch

so you are saying Derren Brown could never win a talent competition like that?
(not that he would ever participate, he doesn't have too)

No I don't think he could. You want an example...

Try and find a single trick of Derren's that fits into 90seconds. I can think of a few but they arn't nearly strong enough.

Try it yourself, see what you can do in 90seconds, and then ask yourself if that is really better than Susan Boyle or whoever.


We need a lot more time for patter etc.

I would say derren brown would have a harder time than you think. Imagine him coming out at the start, stating something weird, people will laugh then ask why he nods the whole time. Part of the reason he works so well is that people know what to expect.

it's a very different performance.

don't forget, just because an effect doesn't work on somewhere's got talent doesn't mean it's bad! it just means it doesn't fit their mold.

A lot of what does well fits the same format, even / especially the magic!

Well.. I have 2 minutes and a half to perform.

I perform in front to the producers last monday, and they enjoy a lot my performance.

Yesterday I perform the same act in front of the TV cameras and the judges in the Theathre of my City.

The judge say that my act isn't for that kind of scenario.
My act is a PK act in where I bend a spoon and break other one in the hand of my participant.

I feel that I give my best in the scenario. I get 4 Applause moments, but the judges had the final answer.

The Swedish guy was on stage for about three minutes; that's twice what the American version of the show allows.

I can't see a mentalist (including one of Derren Brown's talent) doing something that works in 90 seconds but I'd love to be proven wrong. Sure you could bend some silverware or do some kind of PK thing but that's not the kind of act that I think would move on.

Try to think of routines that might fit. A telephone number prediction from a phone book? Smash and stab would work if it hadn't been worked to death and several different methods having been exposed.

And remember you have to do something different and better as you move along. Getting anywhere in these Got Talent shows is a real challenge to a mentalist. I would love to see a mentalist get through even two rounds.
