Britain's Got Talent Viewers Convinced They've Worked Out How Magicians 4MG Do Their Tricks
One thing magicians could really do without is people trying to 'work out' their tricks. Just appreciate the magic, guys.
Four people getting too much scrutiny at the moment are 4MG (imagine One Direction meets Harry Potter) following their semi-final performance on Britain's Got Talent last night.
Instead of erupting into a pop song about heartbreak after bursting out of some American-esque lockers, the teenage boys began delving into the beauty of magic and boy are they getting critiqued for it.
Fans believe they have 'exposed' the lads - who involved the BGT judges in their act before coincidentally (or, magically) welcoming 2009 winners Stavros Flatley to the stage.
First up was David Walliams, who was asked to make up a five-letter word which was guessed correctly when one of the magicians wrote 'DOORS' on a whiteboard. Which actually looked more like 'OOORS' but that's my only bit of criticism.
After this, Amanda Holden cut a pack of flashcards before being given three of them and sliding one over to Alesha Dixon.

Finally, Simon Cowell was asked to choose a ball out of a bucket of 100. He chose the number seven which correlated to 'Stavros Flatley' on the notes page of one of the magicians' phones.
The judges were stunned when Simon, Alesha and Amanda's pickings all related back to the 2009 winners who then burst out of the aforementioned school lockers.
But, of course, people 4MG all worked out with some speculating that the cards weren't given at random.
One viewer explained: "The 3 'random cards' given to Amanda were not random. You can see him offer her to cut the pack, but take the top 3 cards. Although she cuts the pack, he puts the same cards back on top. So he can be sure he gives her the cards required."
Another said: "He had 6 lists on his phone & opened the one which placed Stavros in the dice position. The cards were probably bent so a cut would be forced etc." Which would still be pretty impressive to be fair. Six out of 100."
The Britain's Got Talent live final is on ITV1 this Sunday.
