Philadelphia Eagles long snapper Jon Dorenbos made a magical second appearance on NBC's America's Got Talent Tuesday night.

Dorenbos originally appeared on the talent/variety show last month when he wowed judges Simon Cowell, Mel B., Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum with his comedic magic act.

Last night, the Eagle's longest tenured player (he's been with the Birds since 2006) did it again!

How Jon became fascinated by magic is a powerful story of a young man overcoming hard times.  When Dorenbos was 12, his mother, Kathy, was killed by his father, Alan.

His father was convicted of second-degree murder, and sentenced to prison. After being initially sent to a foster home, Dorenbos was adopted by his aunt and uncle. To ease his mind, he turned to magic. And he is good at it!

By the way, Dorenbos showed off his magical talents the other night in Atlantic City as part of Craig Shoemaker's comedy show at Borgata.

With Tuesday night's golden buzzer-winning performance, Jon now advances to AGT's live shows beginning July 26 at Radio City Music Hall, NYC. Good luck, Jon!
