For those that Missed it, our own Alexanderia the great did an underwater pool escape last night on America's Got Talent. As much as I don't really like that show, Alex did well for herself and is moving on to round two in Las Vegas.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

I saw it!

I recognized her from the tease before she came on because the brief shot they used looked a lot like Alexandria's avatar.

I particularly like the exhale!

Thanks all. I thought long and hard about doing the show, as I know magic has not done well in the past. I almost did the show last year but decided against it. This year after talking to a few people, I felt the time was right for a number of different reasons. I am glad you liked the escape. Coming from all of you I am honored. Harley, I love that you caught the exhale. I wanted to make this unique and more daring so I thought that might be a nice twist. I had hoped they might get a close up of me blowing out before I jumped in but they did not. I do think they did a nice job overall trying to show not only the underwater view but the judges and crowd reactions. I assumed they might do a split screen because every time I see an underwater escape and lose vision of the escape artist, I assume something is fishy (pardon the pun). The judges did not get a chance to see the underwater monitor at the pool (as it did not work) but they were at waters edge so they could clearly see me. I was so pleased with the reaction from the crowd and the judges of course. I tried to get them to feel it. It seemed like they got it. It was a great feeling for me the way all reacted. And Howie Mandel's comments just blew me away. I cannot wait to do my next escape. I just hope I can do escapology proud. Thanks again for all your support!
