Eric Jones is a magician act from Season 12 of America's Got Talent.


Eric Jones is beginning to make a name for himself in the world of close-up magic. Armed with sleight of hand, Eric dazzles his audiences with his digital dexterity. He uses these tools to politely deceive and entertain his audiences. Ordinary, everyday items become objects of fancy as Eric delicately handles them. Coins multiply, cards fly, and audiences cheer.

An award winning performer, Eric’s magic has been showcased at Magic Castle in Hollywood, CA, and NYC’s Monday Night Magic, the longest running magic show in New York. Eric has appeared on television in 13 countries spanning 4 continents and has wowed dozens of A List celebrities. As an author, creator, performer and consultant, Eric's expertise is sought out by Fortune 500 companies such as Merrill Lynch, State Farm and Coca-Cola. [1]

Eric was a contestant on Season 2 of Penn & Teller: Fool Us where he successfully fooled the duo.


Eric Jones' audition in Episode 1205 consisted of performing an illusion where a coin appeared to teleport from his hand into Mel B's hand. Although Simon Cowell voted "No," Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel voted "Yes," sending Eric to the Judge Cuts. [2]

Judge Cuts

Eric Jones' Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1207 consisted of performing magic in which he asked guest judge Chris Hardwick to sign a playing card. Eric then changed the back of the card from blue to red. Eric then appeared to move Hardwick's signed card into Simon Cowell's buzzer. Finally, Eric smashed the buzzer with a hammer and retrieved a card from inside: this card was the one Hardwick had signed.
