NEW YORK, April 21 -- VH1's Celebreality gets the magic treatment with its newest reality competition series "Celebracadabra!"

In each episode our celebs will be taught a different genre of magic from sleight-of-hand and comedy magic to phobia magic and even large-scale illusions. Our celebrity cast will not have to master these tricks alone as they will be paired up with renowned magicians including: Asi Wind, Rocco, Silly Billy, Murray, David Regal, Derek Hughes and Simon Lovell. The magicians will do their best to teach the celebs several tricks a week when it usually takes years to master just one. The competitors face tough crowds and a panel of judges that includes master magicians Max Maven, Jeff McBride and host Jonathan Levit who will determine which celebrities advance to the next round and get a shot at facing off in a battle of ultimate illusions in Vegas for a grand prize of $100,000 from Ellusionist.com.
