It was a jaw dropping episode of America's Got Talent on Tuesday night. One couple’s trapeze act got a LOT of attention—and not for the right reasons.
Trapeze artist couple Mary and Tyce were performing their high-flying routine when Mary, hanging upside-down, slid down her husband's body and out from his grasp, plummeting to the stage before the eyes of the studio audience, their two-year-old son Jaxx, and the completely gobsmacked judges.
Viewers seemed just as surprised as the judges:
But some folks were suspicious and they made a few good points...
Fake stunt or fake husband, if it was my gf I’d have jumped down immediately and held her so tight. He waits to even hug her— champagne mami (@bslamon) July 18, 2018
Others bought it hook, line, and sinker:
I can't believe she got up after that fall oh my God I hope she's okay— hippykoz (@Ondrya3) July 18, 2018
Check out the whole amazing act BEFORE the fall:
Mary is reportedly fine. According to People, a heavy mat broke her fall. She got back up during the show, smiled, and exchanged a kiss with her husband. She even asked the judges if they could have a second chance, but they were overruled by Simon Cowell.
Cowell reminded the couple:
You nearly broke your neck.
Fall or no, the pair gets to advance to the show’s live rounds.
Just remember Tyce, when it comes to holding on to your partner, a promise is a promise.
We're looking at YOU Rose.
