This is a compilation of the most viewed youtube videos ever. Before compiling this list, I thought this would include at least Copperfield, Blaine, Derren Brown, Dynamo or Cyril, but interestingly almost all of the top 10 are from popular TV talent shows.

I have selected videos if they feature magic tricks that are or can be performed for a live audience. I’ve excluded videos that are stunts, pranks, revelations, optical illusions or use cgi or camera effects.

The view count is current as of – 15th July 2017.
