Artem Lyubanevych and Oleg Shakirov are not “Just Two Men,” they are extremely talented aerialists with undeniable acrobatic chemistry. Bringing their dangerous yet satisfying aerial strap gymnastics on stage, the duo is on a mission to make a mark in America’s Got Talent history.

Just Two Men Have Years-Worth of International Aerial Arts Experience 

Coming into America’s Got Talent, Artem and Oleg are not amateur aeralists. Rather, the duo is already quite known in the circus arena, having showcased their fascinating gymnastic qualities locally and abroad.

At the young age of six, Artem was already learning the ropes of acrobatics. Working solo, he’s managed to choreograph numerous aerial strap performances, making him an immediate force in the industry as early as 2008. In 2009, he participated in the music-hall festival of the Feux de la Rampe in Brunoy-en-Essonne, introducing himself as a passionate aerial strap performer.

Subsequently, he teamed up with Oleg and formed an incredible acrobatic partnership from there. Over the years, they successfully launched their duo in several gymnastic arts festivals — Cirque du Soleil, Flic Flac, Roncalli, Cirque Pinder, Holiday on Ice, and others. In 2018, they competed at the Monte-Carlo Festival, then finishing the show with a silver medal under their belt.


They Joined Ukraine’s Got Talent Ahead of AGT

Apart from their awesome experiences in the circus, Just Two Men also tried to shoot their shot on Ukraine’s Got Talent. They auditioned back in season three of the said talent competition show.

The duo didn’t snatch the winning title during that time, but nonetheless expanded their acrobatic qualities. Over a decade later, Just Two Men is once again taking a chance in a Got Talent competition. This time, on America’s Got Talent Season 18.

Artem and Oleg surprised their followers with the great news on July 14. The two posted on their solo accounts on Instagram, uploading a snap of them standing on the AGT stage for auditions. Surely, their aerial acrobatics are to look forward to in the next episode of the talent show.

If you want to witness Just Two Men’s audition performance on America’s Got Talent, be sure to tune in on Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET on NBC.
