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

The couple showed off various lifts and started their routine with Tyce holding Mary by her neck, her legs dangling in the air.

When Mary got up she smiled and waved, and Tyce joined her on the stage to give her a kiss.

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".

On Tuesday's America's Got Talent, married trapeze couple Mary Ellen Wolfe and Tyce Nielsen, better known as Duo Transcend, were trying to become one of seven of 18 acts to move on to the live shows round.

Mary's mother and the couple's two-year-old son Jaxx were watching the act at the time and witnessed Mary's fall.

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

Obama warns of 'strange and uncertain times'
It's not like things such as corruption and racism were terrifically better before Trump was elected, but at least the epicenter wasn't the White House.

Actor Ken Jeong, who was guest hosting, made it clear performing again would not be necessary. This is not "America's Got Perfection" - it's 'America's Got Talent.' No one can do this.

Simon Cowell and co-judge Mel B were also left horrified by the whole event and were forced to look away in disbelief, while audience screamed and gasped in shock.

"I don't think there's ever been a singer on any of our competitions who's been note-perfect", he explained. "It makes them human", Cowell added. "I mean, it's okay!" It still doesn't make them not unbelievable.

Perhaps more incredible is the fact Tyce is nearly legally blind due to a condition called Keratocunus, where the cornea becomes thin and disorts vision. "The consequences on this are slightly worse than falling off key, whereas you almost broke your neck".

Mandel chimed in, "You nearly got hurt very badly and your first thought was, "Let me do that again" and only on "America's Got Talent" does that happen".
