Meet The “Most Dangerous Act” Simon Cowell Has Ever Seen, The Vardanyan Brothers
Reading Time: 2 minutes
Armenian acrobatic duo The Vardanyan Brothers are set to bring their jaw-dropping and death-defying sword balancing act to the AGT stage as one of the 40 acts selected for the inaugural AGT: Fantasy League season. Known for risky balancing stunts and aerobatic feats, they first gained attention competing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2019.
Who Are The Fearless Vardanyan Brothers?
The Vardanyan Brothers consist of siblings Gevorg and Andranik Vardanyan, hailing from Armenia, currently based in Moscow, Russia. They first stepped into the spotlight by winning Season 9 of Russia’s Got Talent in 2017 with their spectacular acrobatic routines.
The pair then brought their act overseas for BGT in 2019, earning high praise from Simon Cowell himself with their terrifying sword balancing trick. Cowell deemed them “the most dangerous act I’ve seen on any Got Talent franchise” as the brothers balanced precariously on the tips of swords in their mouths.
The Vardanyans continued to compete on talent shows like Spain’s Got Talent: All Stars, where they earned the Golden Buzzer before placing second overall. Their breathtaking skills and courting of danger each time they take the stage have earned them fans worldwide.
As one of the viewer-voted Fantasy League participants, The Vardanyan Brothers will showcase more of their signature death-defying balancing stunts and acrobatics to vie for the title. Fans can likely expect even riskier tricks on AGT: Fantasy League, which will premiere on January 1, 2024, on NBC.
Their Sword Balancing Act Leaves Audiences at The Edge of Their Seats
The Vardanyan Brothers demonstrate immense discipline, control, and teamwork each time they are on stage. Their sword balancing appears almost effortless thanks to years of practice and core body strength cultivation.
Yet as their BGT performance showed, even professionals take wobbles. The immense risk they take elicits frightened reactions from crowds who can hardly believe their stunts are real even as they watch them happen live.
Part of the appeal lies in witnessing such danger being confronted, while trusting in the brothers’ skill. Though they court disaster, their precision teamwork prevails. Fantasy League viewers can certainly expect more of that thrilling dynamic in their upcoming act.
