Blind trapeze act goes horribly wrong on 'America's Got Talent'

Blind trapeze act goes horribly wrong on 'America's Got Talent'

Tyce is legally blind in one eye due to a progressive eye disease.

Mary and Tyce pulled off some incredible stunts on a trapeze before something very bad went down - Mary slipped!

Duo Transcend, a super talented trapeze act, had the judges and audience on the edge of their seats throughout their nail-biting act which saw them dangling and swinging high above the stage.

Rather than simply wowing the judges with their risky act, a married acrobat team earned gasps from the panel and the audience alike when the husband lost his grip and the wife went hurdling to the stage below.

Luckily Mary didn't break any bones as she hit a padded mat below, and she even asked to do the trick again.

Concerned husband Tyce was lowered to the ground where he gave his wife a kiss of of condolence as the audience cheered.

Then you'll probably be as scared as you are mesmerized by the trapeze act from Tuesday night's episode of "America's Got Talent". "It makes them human".

"This is not 'America's Got Perfection, '" Jeong said. "I mean, it's okay". Howie Mandell, Mel B, Heidi Klum, Simon Cowell, and guest judge Ken Jeong all praised their guts in pushing the envelope further after earlier critiques. It certainly doesn't make them not unbelievable.

"Although the consequences of this are slightly worse than falling off-key, whereas you almost broke your neck", Cowell added.

While the pair were understandably concerned that their mishap could spell the end of their AGT journey, they were overwhelmed when they were told they'd be moving on to the live rounds at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.

Howie: "You nearly got hurt very badly and your first thought was, "Let me do that again.' Only on 'America's Got Talent" does that happen".
