The magician asked 52 members of the live audience to think of an object and write the word down on a piece of paper. He then asked Alesha Dixon to shout 'stop' as he shuffled the pack of answers, before giving each judge a word.
Jamie proceeded to conjure up the objects from nothing - a goldfish for David Walliams, an ice cube for Alesha, a shoe for Simon Cowell and a helicopter for Amanda Holden (yes, really).
However, some viewers began pointing out flaws in Jamie's trick, noting that he had taken off his shoe before Simon had said the word so must have known what it was beforehand. The most beady-eyed Twitter users took screenshots of Jamie slipping off his shoe while working on Alesha's ice. The cameraman and your TV's rewind button have a lot to answer for. So does the person in the audience who wrote 'helicopter' but failed to make themselves known when asked by Simon.
How do you think Jamie Raven conjured up a goldfish and a helicopter? Answer - He knew what was coming. Not magic, pure bluster #BGT— James Way (@JimboWay6) May 27, 2015
Personally I think @Kingdomtenors should replace Jamie Raven.. Nobody admitted to writing helicopter and he already had his shoe off..— Tyler Bowie ￼ (@tylerbowiex) May 28, 2015
So happy Jamie Raven won that semi final, even though after the whole helicopter card situation I'm not sure i believe anymore #bgt— misslindseytay (@Lindseytaylor__) May 27, 2015
"Who wrote helicopter?" Er, well, Jamie Raven, then he forced 4 cards to you all. By going large, he made it more obvious. :( #bgt— George Stevens (@pompeygeorge) May 27, 2015
Nevertheless, the judges and many other viewers were left open mouthed at Jamie's performance, with Alesha saying she was "absolutely gobsmacked".
That Jamie Raven off bgt has baffled me— Dale Wilson (@bcfc_dale) May 28, 2015
In his first audition, Jamie turned four £50 notes into 'Bank of Britain's Got Talent' notes complete with the judges faces drawn onto them. The trick got even more mind-boggling before Simon declared that he "actually believes in magic" - quite a feat.
