Amélie van Tass and Thommy Ten are “The Clairvoyants.” 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 on with “The Illusionists 2.0” and “The Illusionists-Live from Broadway.”
A highlight of their career was the opportunity to perform their show at the Sydney Opera House. This upcoming winter they will experience another career highlight, appearing on the show “The Illusionists – Turn of the Century” in the Palace theatre in New York City, on Broadway.
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 will appear, 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.
Van Tass and Ten were awarded “The German Champions of Mentalism,” “Magicians of the Year 2015,” and, also in 2015, were enthusiastically chosen as the “World Champions of Mentalism,” a prize that hasn’t been awarded in 30 years.
In April 2017 the Academy of Magical Arts and The Magic Castle Hollywood awarded Thommy Ten & Amélie van Tass “Stage Magicians of the Year 2016” for their extraordinary art.
