This 'America's Got Talent' Contestant Combines Math And Magic To Leave Everyone — Including You — In Shock

Tom London let the numbers do the talking.

What happens when you take math — something rooted in logic and reason — and pair it with magic — something that cannot easily be explained? Well, this interesting combination is exactly how 25-year-old Tom London planned to wow the judges and audience during his America's Got Talent audition

Spoiler alert: it totally worked.

"It's been my dad. My whole life, I've grown up just wanting to be like him. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be able to do what I'm about to try and do," London replied when asked what his source of inspiration has been. He also revealed later on that he wants to create "the best magic show Vegas has ever seen" that would draw people from all around the world.

First up, though, was this AGT audition — which London described as "something that has never been done before." After a trick with the audience's phones, the judges pick three volunteers to join London — with the magician calling host Tyra Banks onto the stage, too. London has the volunteers provide guesses to numerical questions — such as how many No. 1-selling artists Simon Cowell has had on his record label, how many millions of records Mel B. sold worldwide with the Spice Girls, what year Heidi Klum began modeling, and (jokingly) how many girlfriends Howie Mandel has had. In that specific order.

What we are left with is an equation and total that looks like this: 53 x 102 x 87 (using the last two digits from 1987) + a random eight-digit number Banks typed with her eyes closed = 73,928,547.

As for what London does with that end number, you're going to have to watch and find out.

You can see how the judges react to London's audition — as well as those of other hopefuls — on this week's episode of America's Got Talent, airing Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
