We met magician Collins Key backstage before his performance at Nassau Coliseum recently. He became known worldwide after appearing on the show "America's Got Talent."

He is such a great guy. We asked him if he had any hobbies besides doing magic? He joked, "No, I have no life. I like to play video games. I like Rubik's Cube and all that stuff. I love puzzles. I love mental games. I love reading."

We wanted to know how he was so lucky to be an opening act for Demi Lovato? Collins said, "I kind of crashed her set. I did some magic for her, and she liked the magic a lot. So she was like, 'You know, Collins, you should come on tour with me and open up'; and it was kind of a crazy move for her to do that, because a magician has never gone on tour before. She invited me on tour, and I got to go, and now I get to see Demi perform every night, and she's awesome."
