Rialcris is a trio of sexy hand balancers who are brothers. They struck up a great connection with Sofia Vergara during their AGT audition because they are also from Colombia. The trio is on a mission to make Colombia proud and lift the countries name. Their nail-biting audition did just that.

‘AGT’ Act Rialcris Shocks Sofia Vergara with Dangerous Hand Balancing Routine

Alex, Christian, and Ricky are from Bogotá and Vergara is from Barranquilla. They told her how proud they are of her and that they are aiming to make Colombia proud with their audition. The trio were all smiles as they got to talk to Vergara who they are obviously very inspired by. Howie Mandel later pointed at Alex and joked that “it’s like looking in the mirror.”

The routine started off with Ricky balancing on Alex’s head using only one hand. Alex slowly stood up to make the act that much more dangerous. Christian also balanced while holding onto one of Alex’s hands. At this point in the audition, Vergara looked very impressed by Rialcris.

The next trick was what really blew her mind and made her say “bravo.” Christian balanced on Alex’s feet and then Ricky did a handstand at the very top. Ricky put his head on Christian’s feet and did a headstand without using any hands. Vergara yelled her signature catchphrase as the brothers perfectly executed the trick. All four judges gave Rialcris a standing ovation.


This Trio Has Performed All Over the World

In 2016, Rialcris competed on Tù Sì Que Vales. Much like AGT, the stakes are high because all of the acts are vying for a cash prize. They ditched their shirts in their finale routine, a move we can only hope to see on AGT in the future. Rialcris has performed on some of the world’s biggest stages. In May, the group posted pictures doing their incredible tricks in front of beautiful temples in Taipei.

In 2019, the group was working on a new project for Producciones Trevensolli in Las Vegas. If they win AGT, they will get their own show in Las Vegas, a dream come true for many acts. They performed with Circo Atayde Hnos in Mexico City that same year. Rialcris took home an award at the International Circuba Festival in 2018.

Their hand-balancing tricks are proof that their brotherly bond is full of trust. It takes so much concentration to get this act right and they manage to nail it every time. Let us know what you thought of Rialcris and their shocking audition down below!
