Acrobatic Act Takes A Shocking Tumble On ‘America’s Got Talent’ Stage — Did They Recover? [VIDEO]
Fratelli Rossi is a duo of brothers that auditioned for season 13 of America’s Got Talent. Their audition was full of moments that will seriously make you gasp. Plus one of their tricks led to them taking a fall that left many wondering if they were injured. Check out the scary moment below.
Fratelli Rossi Had Terrifying Mishap During ‘America’s Got Talent’ Audition
Before their tumbling act began, Simon Cowell asked Fratelli Rossi just how dangerous their act is. “I was performing in my show and I fell down, small accident and I tore my ACL,” Alejandro Rossi said. “I had ACL surgery six months ago on my right knee and tonight is my first performance since then.” They then began their high-speed tumbling act that was full of death-defying tricks. But during one balancing trick, Alejandro took a scary fall that left the judges screaming in horror. They were concerned that he had reinjured his knee. He sat for a few seconds on the floor before his brother helped him up. After the fall, the judges continuously asked him if he was ok. Fratelli Rossi insisted they continue on with the act. They then set out to perform the same stunt much to the dismay of the judges.
This time, the trick went off without a hitch. Their perseverance earned them a standing ovation from the judges and the audience. “You guys are absolutely incredible,” Heidi Klum said. “I found that absolutely terrifying but also hot in a weird way but you’re proper men,” Mel B said. “I like that.” Howie Mandel said he noticed “a couple of mistakes” in their performance and also commented on how emotional Fratelli Rossi was. “Did you see where his brother’s knee went?” Simon asked. “I’d be crying.” He continued “I think it’s not always right to judge these acts on being technically perfect. The fact that it went wrong and then you did it again actually made the act better.” They were voted into the Judge Cuts round where they wore blindfolds during the routine. But sadly they did not advance to the live shows.
Where Are They Now?
Since their time on America’s Got Talent, Fratelli Rossi has taken their act all over the globe. They appeared on a German commercial where they got to flex some of their tumbling skills.
They also went on to compete on World’s Got Talent which was held in China. They performed another death-defying routine but were knocked out in the preliminary rounds by Britain’s Got Talent illusionist group Magus Utopia.
They are just finishing up performing in the Spanish show “The Hole” in Madrid where they took their act to new heights.
