Well, Shin Lim has taken everything he could find on YouTube and turned them into a classic mind-boggling show that brings out the true precision, grace and dexterity of this young man. He has worked hard on his style of tricks from the beginning.

After winning this prestigious award he was asked to perform at the House of Magic in Macau, China as well as perform for the victims of the November 2015 Paris Attacks.
