Wacky Britain's Got Talent magician TanBA previously severed his tongue doing his risky tricks.

We've seen many magic acts on BGT over the years but none like TanBA.


In tonight's show, TanBa couldn’t help but tuck in to a balloon during his act and much to the Judges’ horror, he followed it up with a side of razor blades!

He went down to the judges' desk to verify the blades were genuine before downing them, leaving the judges squirming.

But the "repulsive" routine got him four yeses from the judges.

Simon Cowell reacted: "I've never seen anything like that in my life. I don't know whether I liked it or it was repulsive, but it was one of the craziest things I've seen on this show."

Amanda Holden added: "You are absolutely nuts but it was really exciting and really chaotic, it was fantastic."


Now TanBA has confessed that thankfully while his audition BGT went to plan, it's always gone so smoothly.

He told The Sun newspaper he once severed his tongue when it all went wrong.

The performer from Japan said: “It’s really dangerous. All the razor blades I use are real and very sharp. If I make a mistake in the timing, I will be injured.

“I have had an injury on the inside of my mouth and tongue before which was very bloody."

He added: “I do worry about the risks. But I love to perform and I overcome the risks as I am doing it for my family.”


It should make for quite the thrilling live show performance...

Britain's Got Talent 2017 airs Saturday nights on ITV.
