Self Taught Aerialist Aidan Bryant Terrifies The Judges In LEAKED ‘AGT All-Stars’ Footage
Reading Time: 2 minutes
Aidan Bryant is back and ready for redemption. After winning second place to Dustin Tavella in Season 16, the aerialist has taken the time to improve his skills and return to the stage. His full AGT All-Stars preliminary performance airs on Monday, January 9 at 8 p.m. ET.
Aidan Bryant Returns to The AGT Stage
America’s Got Talent fan favorite Aidan Bryant is back and better than ever. In recent leaked footage, Bryant talks about his experience winning second place to Dustin Tavella, and how he’s prepared to win it all on the new stage. When asked if he wants to win the new competition, he explained that “I want to win so bad and I’m here to prove it.”
He went on to note that his flexibility, his lines and choreography have been improved. The audience was clearly excited for this performer, since they were practically roaring. Ahead of his time on the stage, one of his team members helped him slick back his hair.
At the beginning of the performance, Bryant performs on a triangle shaped aerial hoop. The judges are immediately impressed with his ability to perform without holding on to the hoop. One of his craziest tricks is hanging from only his neck.
Before even getting halfway through the clip, it’s obvious that Bryant has really improved his act. Everything about this leaked performance is absolute perfection. My jaw was completely dropped while watching his risky, yet elegant moves.
The Judges Loved This Performance
I think the judges’ reactions throughout the performance says everything, they couldn’t look away. Immediately after the act, they each had something to say about the performance. Heidi Klum began the comment session, acknowledging that Bryant had nothing attaching him to the hoop. Within her comments she noted each of the insane moments of the act.
After Klum, Howie Mandel came into his set of the comments as a hater, stating that he’s not a fan of single aerial acts. He went on to clarify that even though it’s not his preference, this act was scarier and more dangerous and “much better than anything I have seen you do.”
Last but certainly not least, Simon Cowell reminded fellow judges and audience that he was 16 years old in his debut performance. While explaining Bryant’s reaction to losing, Cowell stated that he is “one of the most talented contestants we’ve ever had.”
For those who may not remember, Bryant first took the stage as a self-taught aerialist that learned everything he knew from YouTube. This performance was quite impressive and we truly hope the superfans vote for Bryant. He truly came back to the stage with vengeance and the possibility to beat Tavella in the upcoming episode. Will this be Bryant’s season to shine? Only time will tell.
