Viviana Rossi Delivers Fiery Aerial Act in Leaked ‘AGT: All-Stars’ Performance
America’s Got Talent: All-Stars shared an early release performance from Monday night’s new episode, featuring Season 17’s daring aerialist Viviana Rossi. The judges were blown away by Rossi’s dangerous routine.
Viviana Rossi Performs in AGT: All-Stars Early Release
Rossi is a gymnastics champion from Spain who has also performed with Cirque du Soleil. Her Season 17 audition involved being suspended over a bathtub full of water. Although the judges voted her through, she didn’t make it to the live shows that season.
Now Rossi is back for All-Stars, and she’s swapped water for fire this time. She started her performance by dropping from the ceiling, before swinging around the stage and showing off incredible strength and flexibility. The judges were clearly stunned by her talent.
Things got really dangerous when Rossi was lifted into the air with straps on her head and foot, as fire ignited underneath her. (As judge Heidi Klum said “Don’t burn that ponytail!”) Rossi ended up spinning around while hanging from just the back of her head.
What Did the Judges Think of Rossi’s Performance?
All three judges gave Rossi’s performance a standing ovation, as host Terry Crews said it was “unbelievable.” Judge Howie Mandel used the same word to describe the routine, adding that it “looked incredibly dangerous.”
Klum told Rossi that she’s “definitely a huge fan of yours,” while Simon Cowell described her as “the one to beat.” He praised her showmanship, calling it “spectacular.”
“I live for this. I’m born for this. And I want to die doing this,” Rossi said of her passion for what she does, prompting the judges to shout, “No!” Cowell told her, “You don’t have to die.”
