‘America’s Got Talent’ Returns Tonight With A Bonkers Scorpion Trick
The day we’ve been waiting for all week has finally arrived. It’s Tuesday, or as it is known around the Talent Recap office, America’s Got Talent day. There have only been a couple of episodes so far but they have been incredibly memorable. If the video above is any indication, then we are in for some more thrills tonight.
Lord Nil is an escape artist, which we’ve seen before on AGT. Most people do the old Houdini trick of trying to escape a locked box filled with water or something. Impressive, but again we’ve seen it before. But Lord Nil’s act is something new. He locks his head in a box, which is padlocked, and he has his arms zip-tied to a pole Jesus style. Then another box slowly lowers a box filled with scorpions unto his head. Not the German 80’s rock band The Scorpions, real venomous, deadly scorpions.
I won’t give away what happens but it is intense. This is what sets AGT apart from all the other shows that we cover. It’s also why it is by far the highest rated. You just never know what the acts are going to do. The Voice is great and all but no one drops scorpions on their heads.
