'America's Got Talent:' Husband & Wife Death-Defying Trapeze Stunt Goes Wrong

This husband and wife left the judges, audiences, and viewers all over the world in complete shock.

On last night's episode of America's Got Talent, a husband and wife trapeze team, Mary and Tyce, performed a heart stopping routine including flips and turns and more. As viewers learned when the spouses were first introduced on television during the first round, Tyce is legally blind in his right eye due to a progressive eye disease.

During their performance last night, Tyce blindfolded himself while hanging upside down in the air before he was set to grab Mary by her ankle as she slid down his body. Mary slipped through his grip and fell to the floor which had the judges and audiences screaming. When she fell, Mary landed on a safety mat. After a few moments, Mary stood to let everyone know she was not seriously injured due to the act.

After the fall, Mary asked the judges if they could perform the trick one more time, which had them screaming even more! “No, it’s fine!” Mel B yelled. “It’s fine.” Fellow celebrity judge, Ken Jeong, agreed with Mel B. “This is not America’s Got Perfection, it’s America’s Got Talent, nobody can do this,” he told the couple. Simon Cowell was left in shock with Mary's request to perform the trick again telling her she nearly “broke her neck.”

Despite the mishap, the couple is moving forward to the live rounds in Hollywood! The couple's two-year-old son, Jaxx, was watching in the audiences as the terrifying moment occurred.

America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8 pm ET only on NBC.
