Acrobatic dance group Diavolo performed Tuesday night during the Finals episode of “America’s Got Talent” 2017. As one of the Top 10 “AGT” acts of Season 12, Diavolo has often been compared to successful Las Vegas act Cirque Du Soleil. Did the talented group continue wowing the judges and America with their final performance, which combined new and old set pieces? Watch Diavolo’s “America’s Got Talent” recap video above from NBC’s reality TV show.
All four “AGT” judges — Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B and Howie Mandel — jumped to their feet at the conclusion of Diavolo’s performance. Here is what they had to say:
Mel B: “Oh my gosh. I don’t even know where to start. I mean, every time we’ve seen you it’s been extra, extra-ordinary. Is that the right word? Extra-ordinary? Extraordinary! Not extra-ordinary! Extraordinary! I think tonight you just topped yourselves like beyond. I have to say, you incorporated what I love, the anchor thing, and you know what I love about you guys is, you are collectively a powerful force that just embodies teamwork. Did you hear that, Simon? Teamwork? Teamwork! Like, I know it’s very dangerous what you do, it’s just… god it was amazing!”
Klum: “Well I just really hope that everyone in America gets a chance to watch you guys live perform one time. You know, I know it’s amazing on television, but it’s even more amazing right here live in front of us. Amazing.”
Cowell: “Look, it’s hard enough being a singer coming back here every week trying to choose new material. We’ve said this before, the amount of work and precision, it’s like looking inside a watch, watching you guys. It is so precise. Every one of you deserves to stand up here. Jacques, you’re a superstar. I wanna say something here. Anyone who owns a casino or something in Vegas, book these guys because they will bring in an audience. Trust me!”
Mandel: “Yeah, you know, I’m doubling down on what Heidi said, because I gotta tell you what was amazing is the height, is the precision, how dangerous that is. That thing is a huge prop that looks like it’s gonna roll and crush somebody. It’s just amazing, and I don’t think it plays on TV. I don’t think you can see that height. I don’t think you can see that precision. I don’t think you can see that danger. But I can tell you, we can see your votes. So please vote for this.”
