“America’s Got Talent” has seen its fair share of nightmarish magic acts over the years, but magician Nicholas Wallace has raised the bar when it comes to sheer creepiness. For his trick, Wallace explained that he saved an old rocking chair and a disturbing-looking doll from a fire in a hotel, revealing that the chair and the doll share some kind of a supernatural connection. Enlisting judge Gabrielle Union as his volunteer, he asked her to sit in the rocking chair and then covered her eyes with a blindfold.RELATED: 14-Year-Old Singer Stuns ‘AGT’ Judges With Audition Of Brandi Carlile’s ‘The Joke’
He then instructed her to raise her hand whenever she felt that she was being touched, and proceeded to poke the arm of the doll, which prompted the blindfolded judge to raise her hand.
At the end of the act, Union appeared confused and disoriented, while the audience expressed shock and awe at what had just taken place.
