“America’s Got Talent” Contestants Narrowly Avoid Disaster In This Gravity-Defying Performance!

A two-photo collage. The first shows Heidi Klum and Sofía Vergara holding onto each other, pained expressions on their face from fear. The second image show an acrobatic group performing. While one balances on a rolling platform, another is balanced while holding their arms, feet straight up in the air. Their balance if off, seeming like they're about to fall

Throughout the years, America’s Got Talent has given a stage to some of the most dangerous acts. Just when we think we’ve seen it all, another person or group proves that humans are capable of so much more than we can imagine. This is certainly the case for the acrobatic group Hakuna Matata. Coming all the way from Tanzania, they were prepared with an act that will have you on the edge of your seat!

As Simon Cowell points out, their act is similar to others they’ve seen on the show. But he also explains that Hakuna Matata’s performance is “a step up” when compared to them. That’s because, in Hakuna Matata’s audition, all four members attempt to balance on a rolling platform. If this feat sounds impossible, you’re not far off! This skilled group nearly topples over multiple times — but they never fail to keep going.

Each time one of the men almost falls down, the judges can’t help but express how nervous they feel for them. The audience is also holding their collective breath — and so are we! In the end, though, they pull off every stunt they created. Best of all, it seems their mishaps only made the overall performance even better!

Acrobatics Group Hakuna Matata Has the America’s Got Talent Audience on the Edge of Their Seats!

“This was a classical example of actually the getting there was as good as being there — because you could see how difficult it was and you never gave up,” Cowell tells them. “Respect, because that’s what the show is all about.”

Hakuna Matata’s audition truly shows the power of never giving up, no matter how many setbacks you face. We can’t wait to see what they manage to pull off next! Because, seriously, if this is what they do for their audition, can you imagine what stunts Hakuna Matata will come up with as this season of America’s Got Talent progresses!?
