Reading Time: 2 minutes
With the infallible execution of his acrobatics, you wouldn’t even believe that Aidan Bryant was an amateur when he joined America’s Got Talent. Indeed, Bryant’s talent has been captivating, one that deserves a spot in AGT All-Stars. Let’s get to know him more.
Aidan Bryant Discovered His Passion for Aerial Acrobatics At 14
Aidan Bryant joined AGT season 16 as a 16-year-old aspirant who had no formal training in acrobatics. He learned the ropes of aerial silks and hoops all by himself after seeing a video clip from Pink’s concert. At the time, he was 14.
Subsequently, he rummaged his grandma’s closet, found a bedsheet, and put two straps in both ends so he could hang it up in a tree. There, his interest for aerial acrobatics grew into passion. It’s worth noting that when he began practicing this skill, Bryant was afraid of heights. Today, he could basically fly 20 feet from the ground, with no fear at all.
To test himself and show people what he’s got, he stepped in the AGT stage and performed an aerial hoop routine that left the judges and audience stunned. He remained thriving in the competition until the Finale, fascinating the crowd with his every performance.
During his final act, the critical and meticulous Simon Cowell was so impressed that he had to stand in the judges’ table to clap for him. We totally saw this coming, Cowell once mouthed that he’s a potential Las Vegas act.
He’s Coming Back for AGT All-Stars
Bryant made AGT history, becoming third-youngest runner-up and second aerial act to be first runner-up. In addition, even though he didn’t obtain the winning title, the series gifted him a new car.
As predicted by Cowell, Bryant went to Sin City to deliver a death-defying aerial performance. Particularly, he was among the eight impressive acts from previous AGT seasons who will entertain through the series’ 75-minute show in Las Vegas, Superstars Live.
Furthermore, this young aerialist is one of the 60 talented acts to compete in AGT All-Stars. Certainly, he’s learned new tricks after season 16, so we better expect the best from him.
To know more about his journey in AGT All-Stars, be sure to tune into AGT All-Stars on Tuesday, January 3 to see his preliminary performance.
