Trapeze stunt goes wrong on America's Got Talent

Audiences horrified after trapeze act on 'America's Got Talent' goes terribly wrong

A daring trapeze act on America's Got Talent nearly took a fatal turn on Tuesday night when something went horribly wrong for the performers involved. The mishap shocked the judges and audience, including the performers' 2-year-old son and his grandmother.

Tuesday marked the first night of the season's Judge Cuts round.

Mary and Tyce were performing their acrobatic routine high above when an upside-down Mary slipped from the blindfolded Tyce's grip and plummeted to the stage.

"I'm legally blind in my right eye", Nielsen reminded viewers during their pre-routine video package. But when the show returned, it was revealed that since Tyce and Mary had covered the floor with a thick protective mat, Mary was OK. For her encore performance she took judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B, Heidi Klum and Ken Jeong to the jungle by impersonating monkeys, elephants and frogs. Tyce got down to hug her and give her a kiss.

The embarrassed couple asked if they could do a repeat performance to make up for their slip-up.

America's Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on NBC. "I mean, it's OK!"

"The consequences on this are slightly worse than falling off-key, whereas you almost broke your neck", Cowell said, to some audience laughter. "It doesn't make them not awesome". He also pointed out how "incredible" it was that Tyce was able to do the performance even though he is almost blind.

While Wolfe definitely felt that one in the morning - cameras caught a noticeable red mark on her back as the pair left the stage - that they were sent through to the next round probably aided her recovery.
