Tomorrow night we’ll get to see the last crop of America’s Got Talent Season 14 auditions, and AGT has given us a little taste of what we’re in for with Matthew Richardson.


Who’s Matthew Richardson?

Meet Matthew Richardson, graphic designer by day, hoop master by night. Decked out in silver body paint for his audition, watch him wow the judges as he twists, turns, and flies with a simple hoop. This isn’t your sister hula hooping in the front yard. This dude takes the hoop to a whole new level. He starts out up in the air doing some acrobatic stuff and then proceeds to some floor work with the hoop that’s like nothing I’ve seen before. Check it out below.

The judges were loving this performance, with Howie Mandel pointing out that while this kind of act isn’t exactly new to AGT it was Matt’s speed and agility that made it feel fresh. Also he’s easy on the eyes and portions of the audience were really into his glitter-covered abs. He might be the acrobatic act that makes it far this year.

Speaking of AGT acrobatic acts, it turns out that Matthew is really good friends with AGT finalists Duo Transcend. You might recall that they are the husband and wife acrobatic team from last season. He famously dropped her 30 feet near some fire [see video below]. But she’s OK and Duo Transcend posted some Instagram pics of them and Matthew having a grand old time in France.

Matthew Richardson and the Duo Transcend couple watched his AGT audition together, hopefully on Talent Recap’s YouTube page. It’s not the same, of course, as watching it when it airs. Maybe they can convince some snobby tavern owner to switch to Americain Avec Talent…or whatever. Looks like a fun group to hang out and drink some wine with in a quaint French village.
