Kinga and Goncalo performed together on Mam talent!, a Polish series which translates to I have talent!, in 2018. Their incredible acrobatics, in which Goncalo swings and balances Kinga on his hands, took them all the way to the grand prize.

The duo said that appearing on AGT: The Champions is a “big dream” for them. Kinga said, “We want to share what we do with as many people, and that’s a perfect place to do it.” Goncalo said they want to “inspire” people. We have our fingers crossed for them as they enter the competition.
