Kid Aerialist from Popular TikTok Family to Audition for ‘AGT’ Season 18
America’s Got Talent auditions are now open for Season 18, and a member of a popular TikTok family is among the hopefuls trying out for the show. The McFive Circus recently posted that daughter Isabelle is ready to show off her aerial skills.
Young Aerialist from TikTok to Audition for AGT
McFive Circus is a family with over 4 million subscribers on TikTok. They also post videos on YouTube showing their day-to-day life. According to their YouTube bio, mom Kellie is a certified aerial instructor, and the family performs aerial silks and lyra routines.
Earlier this month, the family challenged fans on TikTok to guess whether Isabelle or her mom would be auditioning for America’s Got Talent. They even posted a video of the two of them practicing an aerial routine together at home while holding hands.
Then earlier this week, the family confirmed that Isabelle (also known as Little Mama) is the one auditioning for the show on January 11. They also posted a video set to “Popular” from Wicked in which the family applauds Isabelle as she drops from the ceiling.

The Show Has Featured Young Aerialists Before
Isabelle isn’t the first young aerialist to try out for America’s Got Talent. Sofie Dossi was 14 years old when she auditioned for Season 11, showing off her contortion skills as well as performing aerial moves. She later returned to compete on AGT: The Champions.
Perhaps most notably, Aidan Bryant was just 16 years old when he competed on Season 16 of the show, coming in second place. The self-taught aerialist is returning to compete on AGT: All-Stars, premiering January 2 on NBC. He’ll be up against fellow aerial silks performer Alan Silva.
We’ll have to wait a while to find out if Isabelle’s act makes it onto the show for Season 18. No premiere date has been announced yet, but AGT usually kicks off in the late spring.
