Would appear that the US & UK competitors are giving China a skip ...

I don't recall the numbers being this low in a long time!

1 competitor from the USA
1 competitor from Great Britain

Personally, I'm fascinated by all the names I DON'T already know. There's bound to be a few surprises for the audience.

Naturally, I'll be cheering on fellow brit Marc Oberon and my friend Ramon Rioboo, who is one of the best card magicians on the planet but, as a fan of "Scarface" I'm really interested in Tony Montana...

In 2006 the numbers of British performers and US performers (who were not disqualified) was also very low. On the other hand Sweden had 4 competitors in 2006 in Sweden and will have 3 contestants 2009 in China.
In 2006 there would have been many more Japanese and Korean performers too, had not the numbers been limited by FISM rules.
