Jon Dorenbos’ magical run on NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” came to an end Wednesday night.

The Eagles long snapper finished third in the talent show’s season finale, behind winner 12-year-old winner Grace VanderWaal, a singer and ukulele player, and The Clairvoyants, a mind-reading pair of magicians.

Dorenbos became a fan-favorite with his sleight of hand, magic tricks and easygoing manner with the judges and audience. When he was revealed as the third-place finisher, he thanked those who voted for him and congratulated the two acts he placed behind. He took to Twitter to thank fans as well:

Dorenbos, of course, will return to his day job with the Eagles (they play against the Bears in Chicago on Monday night), but we’re sure there’s more magic in his future.
