America’s Got Talent: Aussie Dom Chambers makes it to the semi-finals

Cheers to that! Magician Dom Chambers becomes the first Aussie to make it through to the semi-finals of America’s Got Talent by performing a beer-guzzling stunt

Dom Chambers proved he had yet another trick up his sleeve when he became the first Australian to make it through to the semi-finals of America’s Got Talent.

Appearing on the Today show on Friday, the 26-year-old magician from Melbourne revealed that he was delighted to have made it so far in the competition.

For his final trick, Dom chugged a giant glass of beer, which he described as ‘more beer than a human could drink in a year… or an Australian could drink in a month.’

But it wasn’t quite enough for him to proceed to the next round, with the energetic showman being eliminated before the finals.

Despite this setback, Dom said he had progressed further than he ever imagined.

‘I was one of the last 15 in the competition, which was well beyond what I expected so [I’m] absolutely ecstatic about that,’ he said.

While he may not have made it to the finals, he said that just having the opportunity to perform on a major U.S. TV show was enough of a reward for him.

‘It’s actually quite difficult to get your head around just how many people are seeing these ridiculous bits of magic,’ Dom said.
