Contortionist Squeezes His Entire Body Into the Smallest Box Ever on ‘AGT’
Contortionist Roman Kricheli did the unthinkable during his Season 16 AGT audition. He literally folded his entire body into a tiny glass box. Watching this act will make your bones hurt and your heart rate skyrocket. Even the judges were freaking out as they watched the madness take place on stage.
Roman Kricheli Freaks the ‘AGT’ Judges Out with Contortion Routine
At first, Roman tried to stuff himself into the box and was unsuccessful. He nearly toppled off the little platform that the box was perched on. Sofia Vergara was freaking out throughout the whole act and advised him not to try again. The 48-year-old’s screams of terror could be heard from miles away.
Roman was not deterred and decided to try one more time to squeeze his body into the box. First, he got one leg in and then pushed his shoulder in. Eventually, he was able to wiggle his entire body into the box. Terry Crews was going nuts backstage as he watched everything happen from a different angle.
Howie Mandel noticed that Roman struggled to get his toe into the box. After wiggling it for what felt like hours, he squeezed it into the box. Just when you thought the craziness was over, his assistant closed the box and left him in there. The judges were concerned that he could not breathe. They screamed and pleaded for Roman to be let out of the box. The door to the box was opened and Roman took a few seconds to come out.
Simon Cowell Took Back His Red Buzzer
After the act was over and the nail-biting died down, Roman’s daughter came out onto the stage. She explained how it has been her dad’s biggest dream to perform on the show. Simon Cowell called for his red buzzer to be retraced after giving it to him during the first few seconds of the act.
“I didn’t want to look at the stage,” Vergara confessed. “I wanted to cry and pull my hair out, I loved it.”
Roman will be moving on to the next round of the competition. The danger acts really stepped it up in this episode and gave us the wow factor we were missing in the first few episodes.
