The Clairvoyants Have A Great Year
Amélie van Tass and Thommy Ten are “The Clairvoyants” and it is clear that 2016 was their year. Of course, like all “over night” success stories, their story was years in the making. After an amazing performance at the 2015 F.I.S.M. in Italy, They came to The United States to perform in America’s Got Talent. While competing on AGT they built their fanbase with personal appearances and even performed at The International Brotherhood of Magicians 2016 Convention and at the 2016 MAGIC-Live. They finished their year of amazing success on The Today Show.
They were both born and raised in Austria and now reside in Austria and America. When they met in October 2011, they began to develop their “second sight” act, and two months later brought it on stage for the first time. Within a year they had developed a full length show. Shortly thereafter, they started touring Europe.
In 2014, they received their first long term contract in America. They performed in the show “The Illusionarium,” by Jeff Hobson. A theatre was specially built for this show on the cruise ship “Norwegian Getaway.”
After a six-month run in “The Illusionarium,” they were offered a featured spot in the largest touring magic show in the world, “The Illusionists,” produced by Simon Painter. As part of the brand-new show “The Illusionists 1903,” they toured Australia, Mexico and the Middle East. They continued with “The Illusionists 2.0” and “The Illusionists-Live from Broadway”. The are currently starring in The Illusionists – Turn of The Century now playing at New York City’s Palace Theatre, which hosted the world’s best magicians and vaudeville acts at the turn of the twentieth century.
In 2016, they decided to take part in the biggest talent show in the world, “America’s Got Talent.” After four months, six different performances and over 100.000 contestants, America voted them second place. In October 2016 they appeared, together with winner Grace Vanderwaal, at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Being part of this show was another major step in the evolution of their career.
