Keiichi, 49, is a contestant in the fifteenth season of Britain’s Got Talent (BGT). The new season started airing on April 16, 2022, on ITV.

On May 7, 2022, Keiichi performed on the ITV show and impressed the judges with his mystifying act. His performance received applause from Britain’s Got Talent audience and a “golden buzzer” from Ant and Dec.
Judge, Amanda Holden went on to say after Keiichi’s performance, “You are funny, you’re quirky, you’re very, very charming and your magic was absolutely excellent. I mean, faultless.” Japanese Magician performs street magic and is now through to the semi-finals of the talent competition.

Britain’s Got Talent fans went on to express their frustration online claiming that Keiichi had performed the same trick in different international versions of the show including Italia’s Got Talent, where he reached the semi-finals. Addressing the claims, a show spokesperson told The Sun, “As with many other entertainers who are hoping for success in the industry, Keiichi, a street performer, had previously auditioned on television shows in the past.”
“There are no rules that state this should prevent him from applying. All acts audition on the same basis and normal programme rules apply. These claims unnecessarily encourage negative trolling against our contestants and “fix” claims are completely untrue. We have always been very open about who can apply for BGT. We look forward to our viewers tuning in to show their support to Keiichi.”
