Alan Silva Is Now a Guinness World Record Holder
On Sunday, Silva posted a photo of himself on Instagram holding a certificate commemorating his new record. The document describes Silva’s record as “most 360 degree spins while hanging upside down from aerial straps in one minute.”
The number of spins by Silva is 164. He achieved this record while performing on an Italian talent show called Lo Show Dei Record, which is focused on world records. Silva performed on the show in Milan, Italy, on January 30. He included a photo of himself on the show’s set in his latest post.
Fellow AGT alums the Spyros Bros commented on Silva’s post about the record by writing, “Sheesh!” they added a tornado emoji and congratulated Silva on his accomplishment. Several other commenters also shared their congratulations for the performer.
Silva Recently Appeared on All-Stars
Silva first appeared on Season 15 of America’s Got Talent, finishing the competition in fifth place after impressing the judges and audience with his mesmerizing aerial routines. Earlier this year, he returned to the AGT stage to compete on All-Stars.
Although Silva delivered a fantastic performance and earned a standing ovation from the judges, he did not earn a Golden Buzzer, nor did he get enough votes from the Superfans to make it into the Top 3 for the night. He was eliminated from the competition.
Silva isn’t the only AGT alum to recently achieve a world record. Last month, unicyclist Wesley Williams broke his own record for “Tallest Rideable Unicycle” at 10.6 meters. It was Williams’ third time breaking the record, which he has held since 2020.
