‘America’s Got Talent’ fans are fuming that father-daughter acrobats Sergey and Sasha got cut by ‘AGT’ judges [WATCH]

Despite stepping up the danger of their act between their “America’s Got Talent” audition and the Judge Cuts episode, father-daughter acrobats Sergey and Sasha Korolev were eliminated Tuesday night. “AGT” judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B, Howie Mandel and Chris Hardwick had nothing but praises after Sasha balanced head-to-head with her father as they crossed a balance beam. That’s why fans are fuming that the acrobatic duo was eliminated prior to making the live shows. Watch the “Americas Got Talent” performance video above and then read the judges’ comments below

Chris: “My mom’s sitting in the front row and I thought she was gonna have a heart attack. But I have to tell you, that was one of the most impressive things I’ve ever seen and I was literally on the edge of my seat. Congratulations on an excellent performance.”

Mel: “I mean, what you do, you’re athletes. Your strength and power and your connection to each other is just beyond. I have to say, even though everything you did was amazing, it was almost too amazing because I just screamed the whole way through.”

Simon: “Hold on. It was too amazing and that’s a bad thing? If this is the worst thing someone can say to you, that it was ‘too amazing,’ you’ve had a good day. I love that it’s dad and daughter, and I love the fact Sasha you’ve got that steel in your eye. I’m always curious about people who come on this show with real talent, why have they not had the break? Maybe that’s why this show exists, to give people like you a shot. This could be exciting, I like you.”

In his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty summarized, “Father-daughter daredevil act Sergey & Sasha Korolev promised to meet Simon’s challenge of bringing more danger to this act than they did in their initial audition. As before, their act comprised of balancing and lifts of Sasha on Sergey’s head while he climbed over ladders and across planks. But, like, when I say balances and lifts I mean Sasha was literally balancing upside down on her head on top of Sergey’s head. with. no. other. support! Just…. incredible. Naturally the judges were all applause, but got into a bit of a tiff when Mel called them ‘too amazing.’ As if that’s a bad thing? LOL!”
