The America’s Got Ability judges kept their breaths as Mary and Tyce of Duo Transcend performed an acrobatic stunt suspended above a fiery level over a flaming beam. Then, everyone’s worst fears came true.
During the second part of the function, Tyce, who suffers from a progressive eyeball disease called keratoconus, blindfolded himself and attempted to catch his better half after a turn. Mary slipped through Tyce’s hands and fell to the stage floor as her 2-year-old boy, performed by his grandmother, watched from the audience.
Thankfully, Mary hopped regress to something easier unharmed, and the judges were sympathetic. Howie Mandell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, Simon Cowell, and visitor judge Ken Jeong all praised their guts in pressing the envelope further after prior critiques.
“I don’t think there has been a singer on any of our contests who’s been take note perfect,” Cowell said. “It still doesn’t make them not amazing. It makes them individual.” He added, “The consequences upon this are slightly even worse than dropping off key.”
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the acrobatic few, who’ve been married for six years, cited “a variety of things” as at fault.
“Well, we wished to intensify our action, so we added some new elements that we’ve never caused before with the open fire and a blindfold,” Mary said. “Used, everything proceeded to go fine, and then during the audition, the most severe possible thing happened.”
“We’ve a music cue that I’m waiting for, but I also give Mary a verbal cue,” Tyce said. “What happens is, when she comes, when she lets go, I have to place my hands immediately in the right place to capture her ft at the right time or I miss her.”
In the end, Mel B called the action “incredible,” Klum praised their “passion,” and Cowell said, “you’re gonna maintain the combination.”
