To paraphrase Queen: Heeee is the champiiiooooon!

Magician Shin Lim had an amazing one-two punch with “America’s Got Talent.” First, he won the 13th season of the series in September 2018. Then, he jumped into “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” which brought together folks who had already enjoyed victory on previous “Got Talent” shows.

And, yup, Lim won that, too, in February. Even for those of us who aren’t particularly fans of magic, Lim’s wizardry is pretty impressive. YouTube the card tricks he performed with actress Melissa Fumero, and you’ll understand why the panel of judges and the theater audience ended up giving him a standing ovation.

With his latest triumph in hand, Lim is out doing live gigs, with one scheduled for Friday at Foxwoods.

And if you are a Shin Lim fan who has to miss this performance, there is a consolation: he is returning on January 10 for another show.

Shin Lim, 7:30 p.m. Friday, Grand Theater, Foxwoods; also, Brad Seidman; $38-$73; 1-800-200-2882.
