At No. 5 would be his "Card Cannon" trick, which was really intriguing and it left viewers at home puzzled for weeks.
His "Fire To Reveal Card Trick" comes in at No. 4, and this was an extremely bittersweet performance, especially since he dedicated it to his grandmother. It involved spray paint, a prediction, and some impressive cards.
At No. 3 would be Mat Franco's "America's Got Talent" audition, which involved a close-up magic trick, that garnered him a standing ovation from all four judges on the show, several of which praised him for being a "genius."
His "iPhone Magic Trick" would come in at No. 2, which had several unique twists to it, that the viewers would have to see for themselves to believe.
When all is said and done, Franco's greatest magic trick of all was his America's Got Talent finale performance. It ranks at No. 1 and it features judge Howard Stern and special guest Rosie O'Donnell as participants. Franco was able to successfully teleport cards from O'Donnell to Stern, leaving his fans in total awe.
Franco has a residency in Las Vegas at The Linq Theater for his "Magic Reinvented Nightly" show, which will start on August 5, and more information about his upcoming live shows may be obtained by clicking here.
