Demian Aditya performs on ‘America’s Got Talent’ 2017 live show: Escape artist earns two X’s from judges [WATCH]

Escape artist Demian Aditya performed Tuesday night during the Quarterfinals 2 episode of “America’s Got Talent” 2017. The past two times Aditya performed he made the “AGT” judges believe that he’d failed his stunts and possibly died, before then appearing from another location very much alive and well. Was Aditya able to trick the judges — and America — yet again? Watch Demian Aditya’s “Americas Got Talent” recap video above from NBC’s reality TV show

“Tonight, I will attempt my most death-defying escape yet,” began Aditya. “I call it the Death Drop.” “AGT” host Tyra Banks then narrated, “Suspended high above the stage, Demian will climb into a simple wooden box. He will then be handcuffed and the lid will be nailed completely shut by his assistants. The only support keeping that box in the air is this rope, looped through those pulleys, and secured here, directly above this blowtorch. And to make it even more dangerous, there will be fire.”

Unfortunately for Adiya, something went wrong which prevented the box from falling down onto the three burning spikes. As the four judges — Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel — conversed with each other about what happened, Adiya awkwardly appeared behind them with a fire extinguisher. As the audience booed, Banks came out and explained, “There was a technical problem that was not Demian’s fault.”

“I kind of imagine this would be like Mel B’s wedding night,” began Cowell, which caused Mel B to throw her cup of water all over him. Cowell continued nonetheless, “A lot of anticipation, not much promise or delivery.” What did you think about Aditya’s latest escape act? Sound off down in the comments section.
