Angel used amputees, and I have a suspicion that`s how did this too.

um, iarechigz? No. You are wrong. It was on Britain`s Got Talent, not America. I only watched the British one and this was one of my favourite acts one week. So if it was only on the American one... how did that happen? )-|

For everyone saying it was two midgets, that would be impossible... even if the `legs` was a midget on stilts, the proportions are all wrong. My bet is robotic legs.

And... they didn`t take him offstage or behind a curtain or anything, you see the legs set down separately while he`s in full view, so it`s not a different person. I think the top half is a contorsionist (I think someone already suggested that) and somehow he manages to slip his legs into the trousers while the `doctor` is standing in front of him. I know there are flaws in this explanation, but I think it`s one of the most reasonable ones so far...

^^ Um Tom? I actually heard of a woman and another man that lives like that. I saw it on TLC channel or National Geo channel. They have to live totally different than what we are used to but they manage, with the help of doctors of course.

Listen, it can`t really be a man without lower half!
Such a person would lack several vital organs like stomach or kidneys.
He doesn`t even have an ass or genitals!
How would he defecate?

Heavenly15, if you know how the trick works, tell us.

it looks like the up half, its a miget, when he "move his legs" look like hes kicking and from the knee and below it goes as a response to the kicking..

his knees are tucked in his shirt its why he looks a bit wide, you can sorta see where they turn him on his back to "reconnect him" that he slips his legs back in. and there is another man bending over to move the other legs or strings.

ohitsmandy is right. I saw this same act at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios. On this TV show, they must not have shown them going off stage before making him "whole" again.

ohitsmandy: "It`s so weird... The top half is a man with no bottom half. I can tell by the way that he walked on his hands that he was used to that as his mode of transportation. The legs were a person bent over and his top half under the rolling cart, hidden by the cloth hanging down. At the show, they momentarily hid him behind a wall while they did a person switch (that`s why he is wearing a mask, so you can`t tell). He`s a whole person wheeled back out... Sorry guys."

^^ I believe this.

No midgets, no robotic legs, just a simple person switch. And did anyone else notice that the camera cut away to the judges and we never see them carry the legs to the lower table? When it cuts back the original operating table is gone also. Seems a little suspicious to change cameras right at that moment.

Hmm.. well theres another option besides the robotics. The midget running around gave me the idea that maybe there are two midgets in the "whole costume" one on each others shoulder when together..

I don`t know why so many people are saying this was on Britain`s Got Talent.... it was on America`s Got Talent. I mean, they`re practically the same show, but... this was on the latter, everyone.

Um... except for the 4 or 5 other people before you that already said it! Does ANYONE read other people`s comments before posting their own!?

FOR ALL THOSE WONDERING HOW IT WAS DONE, HERE IS THE ANSWER:
Magic is real.

Duuh, you thought it was all fake? Shame on you, how stupid do you feel now??? Of course magic is real, so is the Easter Bunny, Santa Claus, True Love and America`s Right to Invade Iraq...

It`s so weird, I was at Halloween Horror Nights last night and he was there performing in the freak show. I was sitting at the front of the stage and to the side and I saw how all his his tricks were done. It sucks that it took the fun away from it, but at least I know what happened. The top half is a man with no bottom half. I can tell by the way that he walked on his hands that he was used to that as his mode of transportation. The legs were a person bent over and his top half under the rolling cart, hidden by the cloth hanging down. At the show, they momentarily hid him behind a wall while they did a person switch (that`s why he is wearing a mask, so you can`t tell). He`s a whole person wheeled back out... Sorry guys.

I think that he must have sold his soul to Satan to get the performance just right. I mean, when I tried this with my little sister, there was a lot more blood and I couldn`t get her to wave or move her legs or anything.

The legs were definatley real at the end, they are not prosthetics either. I think there was a man lent over with his upper body in the deep trolley. the man with no legs or lower torso is real.

Pretty good I think. I have some ideas about how he did it but I think he did a fantastic job. He should go on one of those national talent shows where they judge people and see what they think. And then later the footage could be on the internet and people could write comments like: " Pretty good I think. I have some ideas about how he did it but I think he did a fantastic job. He should go on one of those national talent shows where they judge people and see what they think.

lieunym:

A midget as the legs? The legs bend upwards at one point. So this midget would have to have legs that practically go up to his chin.

I originally thought it was a top half of a man, and the legs were someone leaning forward into a box. But with the camera cutaway I can`t figure out what it was. The cutaway ruined it, the legs just appeared next to the torso.
