Last night, the real-life Kanye West was commanding the stage at New York’s Barclays Center, capping off a day that began with the premiere of his fiancée-focused “Bound 2” video. But TV audiences could see the Yeezus wizard looking on at the tricks of a professional magician. Above, see West grin and laugh awkwardly on ABC special David Blaine: Real or Magic, as he removes an ice pick from Blaine’s hand. The clip also shows Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, Breaking Bad co-stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul, and Woody Harrelson.
Other pop artists appearing on the 90-minute show included Katy Perry, PSY, and Macklemore. See Perry watch Blaine eat glass here. Watch PSY and Lenny Kravitz gaze upon a card trick here (no audio, unfortunately). Other guests included Stephen Hawking, George W. Bush, Jamie Foxx, Jon Stewart, Woody Allen, and Robert De Niro. Fact: Profanely grumpy Harrison Ford and profanely dumbstruck Ricky Gervais had the best responses.
