A Philadelphia Eagle has used a little magic to soar into the semifinals of the live rounds of NBC's popular reality show "America's Got Talent."

Jon Dorenbos, the team’s long snapper, performed a mind-blowing prediction in a bottle for judges Simon Cowell, Mel B, Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum live on Tuesday night.

The judges were wowed as Dorenbos read their minds even Cowell's famous "No." The veteran snapper got a standing ovation from the crowd as he yelled "I'm Jon Dorenbos, peace out!"

"He represents us, the organization, this city on that show," said Eagles head coach Doug Pedersen.

Fans of the show and team backed Dorenbos and pushed him into the semi-finals next week. It's unclear how he will balance his magic fame with his duties as Eagles long-snapper since Eagles veterans reported for training camp Wednesday. He is due in Philly for the first set of training tests Thursday.

He will continue to make the trip between Philadelphia and Los Angeles next week. Luckily for him, the Eagles don't have practice scheduled for next Tuesday.

Dorenbos has performed card tricks for teammates during his time as a Pro Bowl long-snapper. He regularly performs as a motivational speaker and comedy magician in the off-season, according to the Eagles’ website.
