Britain’s Got Talent 2022: Simon Cowell left speechless by 9-year-old magician

A nine-year-old magician left Simon Cowell ‘speechless’ on Britain’s Got Talent tonight after inviting judge Amanda Holden onstage for his trick.

After discussing with Simon how much he loved Harry Potter, Ryland Petty wowed the judges with some magic that was just as impressive.

Before his performance, he admitted backstage that he “wanted to go further” [he] four.’

While performing some magic that involved a Rubik’s cube and guessing a word Amanda got from a jar, as well as involving some friends on stage and asking the audience to shine their phone lights, Ryland got a standing ovation and Simon was left speechless.

‘I am speechless. That was unbelievable, seriously unbelievable,” the media mogul began.

“What was so weird was we were joking about the Harry Potter movie and then it was like a Harry Potter movie on that stage. That was magic.’

Alesha Dixon added: ‘Fantastic show, the magic was amazing.’

“You have magical powers and you had to be stopped,” David Walliams said jokingly, adding, “You should be very, very proud of yourself.”

Simon added, ‘May I see what’s behind your bangs?’

Viewers were equally impressed with Ryland’s performance, with one writing: ‘Ryland like a real Harry Potter magician, absolutely sick!’

Another wrote: ‘He was great! I don’t know how he did all that. A real magician in the making. Hopefully he grows up and does well in life.”

Elsewhere on tonight’s show, Alesha left a young girl speechless after delivering her Golden Moment.

The seven-year-old thought she was going to her regular dance class with other kids before the pop star walked in, who recognized Skyla Blue right away.

Alesha came in and surprised Skyla: ‘A little bird tells me you’re a great dancer and it’s always been a dream of yours to perform on Britain’s Got Talent. I’m here to invite you to audition for Britain’s Got Talent 2022!’

Skyla said cheerfully, “I’m super happy!”

Britain’s Got Talent continues on Saturday at 8pm on ITV.
