PASADENA, CALIFORNIA: Aidan McCann is an Irish magician who will return as a contestant on ‘AGT: All Stars.’ He first appeared on Ireland’s Got Talent aged 9 and will soon be back in the spotlight. In 2020 he also competed in the 14th series of Britain’s Got Talent where he placed 7th. McCann so wowed audiences with his illusions that after his stint on television talent scouting, he earned an invite to appear on The Ellen Show.

In collaboration with talk show host Ellen, Aidan McCann had the opportunity to perform in his segment “Aidan’s Magic Corner” for a number of high profile personalities including Colin Farrell, Emily Blunt and the Jonas Brothers. He also performed a card trick for Irish actress Saoirse Ronan, who won a Golden Globe for her role in the film Lady Bird. Aidan began teaching himself magic at the age of seven using kits he was given as gifts and has now started teaching his mother Noella as well. During a trip to Las Vegas, he was thrilled to meet professional magician Shin Lim, who won the season of America’s Got Talent in 2018.

What Happened to Aidan McCann in BGT?

In 2019, Aidan McCann appeared in Ireland’s Got Talent, part of Simon Cowell’s Got Talent franchise, and reached the semifinals. He repeated his success on Britain’s Got Talent by performing a trick with one of judge Alesha Dixon’s rings. He put the ring in a handkerchief and instructed her to hold him with the ring inside. “Alesha, you can still feel your ring, right?” Aidan asked the singer, which she confirmed. But with a wave of the handkerchief, the ring was gone, leaving Alesha and the other judges in shock. Aidan has stated that his ultimate goal is to win Britain’s Got Talent, as well as own a monkey and an indoor swimming pool. But in the end he failed to win and was placed 7th on the show that year.

After the Ellen show, the magician is ready to appear on AGT: All Stars, where he will hopefully do better than in the UK. With child stars being popular in the US, his precocious talent could earn him more audience votes here — especially since he already has a solid following that’s bonded with him through The Ellen Show.

Tune in to watch NBC’s America’s Got Talent: All Stars on Monday, January 16 at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
