Fiery ‘Go-Big Show’ Act Inspires T-Pain to Show Off Double Dutch Skills
Go-Big Show judge T-Pain showed off a hidden talent during Thursday’s new Semifinals episode. Contestant Tori Boggs performed a flaming jump rope routine that inspired the rapper to share his knack for Double Dutch — albeit without the fire.
Tori Boggs Performs with Flaming Jump Rope
Tori received a score of 94 for her first performance this season, when she jumped rope on a giant piano while playing a song with her feet. This time, she took the danger level up a notch by adding fire to the mix. She shared that she was “not here to play anymore.”
Tori started with a shorter jump rope, which was set on fire. The judges were already impressed with that part of the performance, before she made things even more dangerous by performing a Double Dutch routine with two longer jump ropes, both of which were on fire.
As if that wasn’t enough, she ended up combining both parts of the performance by jumping with a shorter jump rope at the same time as she jumped Double Dutch. And yes, all three ropes were on fire. Host Bert Kreischer hilariously described it as a “Double Dutch Oven.”

T-Pain Shows Off His Double Dutch Skills
“Safety really comes second on the Go-Big Show,” judge Cody Rhodes remarked after Tori’s performance. He and his fellow judges gave Tori a standing ovation for her performance.
T-Pain shared that when he was a kid, he was the one guy who did Double Dutch. Everyone encouraged him to get up on stage and show off his moves. He and Tori jumped between the two ropes, and T-Pain didn’t miss a step.
Unfortunately, Tori’s score of 94 wasn’t high enough to be considered for the Finals. She was beaten by Motocross rider James Carter, who earned a score of 97. Do you think Tori deserved a spot in the finale? Let us know in the comments.
