Lea Kyle Pushed Through Her Fashion Mishap in the Semifinals

The 25-year old French magician received an abundance of praise for her practically perfect quick change act. Earning Heidi Klum’s Golden Buzzer, Lea was catapulted straight to the live shows this season. Thus far, her acts have been seamless (no pun intended). In the blink of an eye, Lea can appear in a new ensemble without a hitch. That is, until last night.

For her semifinals performance, Lea took to the stage in a nature themed act. She timed her quick-changes to the tune of “Rain on Me” by Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande.

Unfortunately, about 25 seconds into the act, remnants of her skirt refused to vanish from her body. The briefly prolonged transformation came as a surprise to viewers, considering her undeniable precision. But, the show must go on. With the swipe of a prop umbrella, the remainder of the garment vanished, leaving Lea to power through her performance.

Despite the mild wardrobe malfunction, the magician received an abundance of praise from the judges. Klum was the first to comment on her Golden Buzzer.

“I think you’re worthy of your own act in Las Vegas,” she commented.

Her positive comments set a precedent of praise for the rest of the judges. Cowell in particular was extremely impressed despite any mistakes that may have been made on stage.

“Lea that performance just defined what this show is all about,” he said. “It was genuinely a million dollar performance, this is an act I genuinely believe will be a huge hit in Vegas. This is what the Luxor needs, what we need, what the finals need, congratulations.”

Lea has become one of the most popular contestants overall this season. With some of the highest views on YouTube over the remaining contestants, she has become a certified viral sensation. Tune in this evening to the live results show to see if Lea, along with the rest of your favorite acts have made it through to the finals.
