On September 14th of this year, "The Clairvoyants", Thommy Ten & Amelie took second place on America's Got Talent. There were five magicians in the semi-finals, with only two making it to the finals; The Clairvoyants and Jon Dorenbos.

Dorenbos who plays for the Philiadelphia Eagles took third place, which was significant, as although Grace VanderWaal, a 12 year-old singer took first place, both second and third places were occupied by magicians.

Thommy and Amelie will appear on the "America's Got Talent" show at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas on October 27th, 28th, and 29th.

They have now been scheduled to play the larger Palace Theatre instead of the Lunt Fontanne this fall on Broadway in The Illusionists: Turn of the Century, which is still scheduled to begin on November 25.

Thommy Ten and Amélie van Tass will now headline the engagement following their success on AGT. The cast will also feature Dana Daniels, Charlie Frye, Mark Kalin, Jinger Leigh, Justo Thaus, Rick Thomas and Jonathan Goodwin.

The Palace Theatre once hosted several notable magicians and illusionists in the early 20th century, including Harry Houdini. Its current tenant, An American in Paris, will play its final performance on October 9. The Illusionists: Turn of the Century will play a limited engagement through January 1, 2017.
