"America's Got Talent" decided to start its 10th season finale with a bang, bringing out mentalist Oz Pearlman for the first performance. And he didn't disappoint. With two weeks to cook up a new trick, he involved all four judges in a bit that included having them play musical chairs, swear on loved ones, and choose envelopes. Don't worry, it'll make sense in a second.

First the Israeli-born performer asked the judges to swear on a loved one that they're not in on the bit. As usual, Mel B fumbled around for a name, Howie Mandel made a joke out of it, and Howard Stern and Heidi Klum were decisive. Then, after the judges told him their choices, he brought them on stage, instructed them to sit on any chair they wanted, and have them pick an envelope.

As it turned out, the judges picked envelopes with papers that had an "X" on the front (like they have in front of their judge desk) and a color on back, and Oz picked the envelope that had his picture on it. Then he asked the judges to get up, step to the right and... revealed that the chairs were the same color as what each had on the backs of their sheets of papers.

While there's a possible explanation for all of that, there's always a kicker, and that kicker was that Oz had something written on the back of his picture that blew the judges' minds, as the video below shows.


Pearlman will perform a quick trick on tonight's results show, just for fun. We'll see if he wins the big prize tonight at 9 PM on NBC.
