“This was perfection,” stated Simon Cowell after roller skating duo Billy & Emily England performed Tuesday night on the first live show of “America’s Got Talent” 2017. Unlike some of the other acts that prompted heated discussions at the reality TV judges’ table, all four — Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel — were unanimous in their praises. Watch Billy & Emily England’s live performance above.
After spinning around and around in circles as they have in the past, the brother-sister duo rose up on a small platform into the air. Emily wrapped her legs around her brother’s neck and continuing swinging without holding onto anything at all. At one point her skate cut Billy in the face, causing him to bleed. “I just talked about her hip being replaced and you’re showing a nick on the nose,” joked Mandel to host Tyra Banks.
“You two are so fabulous!” shouted Klum about the popular Season 12 danger act. “Watching you two never gets old. But you did it again. I love you two, you’re fantastic.”
“I just think what you do is extraordinary,” remarked Mel B. “And the way that you do it, it’s kind of death-defying. I do believe that you’re superheroes and you’ve got angels watching over you, and your dad is watching you right now and so proud of you.”
