US tal­ent Show

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Farewell To Staff -

Talk­ing about Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent, Tom Lon­don said: “About a year ago, we came up with this idea for this magic act which would be heav­ily based on tech­nol­ogy and use tech­nol­ogy to cre­ate magic.

“I flew out there. I was out there for about the week do­ing the first au­di­tion. I was su­per jet lagged!

“I got through, then I didn’t hear any­thing for a month, then I got told that I would be do­ing the next round and I’d be fly­ing out for an­other week for round two for ‘Judge’s Cuts’.

“I spent a whole month build­ing this mag­nif­i­cent trick where I flew around the world and made this mas­sive pre­dic­tion.

“Un­for­tu­nately I didn’t make it through but I had such an in­cred­i­ble time.

“Hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple au­di­tion for that show and to be one of the 26 that got through - I couldn’t be­lieve it. It’s such an hon­our. It was a re­ally in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ence.

“This is def­i­nitely a set­back. Ev­ery­one wants to achieve their dreams but some­times you have to fail.

“There’s things I could have done dif­fer­ently but I’ve got to learn from them and they’re ex­pen­sive lessons, that’s the hard­est part. But you won’t make the same mis­take twice!”
