Acrobatic trio the Messoudi Brothers returned to “America’s Got Talent” during Tuesday’s quarterfinals episode and took things to the next level by including one of the judges in their act. They began the sexy performance by bringing up Julianne Hough on stage and having her lie down on one of the brothers’ backs as he balanced on his arms. It prompted the dance pro to exclaim, “I literally felt like I was at Magic Mike!” Do you think the Messoudi Brothers have what it takes to advance to the finals? Watch the live “AGT” video above, read the judges’ comments below and then make your predictions before Wednesday’s results show.
Julianne Hough: “Okay, let’s just get right to it. Thank you. Thank you for bringing me up with you. That was fantastic. I literally felt like I was at Magic Mike! It was the best thing of my life. Second, I mean you guys upped the ante. That was so dangerous, so crazy. And you guys knew you did a good job. You came down and you hugged each other. You knew you did it. Great job.”
Simon Cowell: “This could be uncomfortable watching it back home with your husband tonight. I put this entire performance down to me. I really, really do. I think the advice I gave you last time gave you the inspiration genuinely to do something so much better and a much better ending, much better performance. So I’m going to be standing with you tomorrow if you get through.”
Gabrielle Union: “It’s gonna take a lot for me to forget about Magic Mike, but Magic Messoudi! Oh, hello. Way to start the performance with Ginuwine‘s ‘Pony.’ I’m galloping along, that’s all I have to say. You guys from start to finish wowed us. And those smiles, you guys, that just made everything magic.”
Howie Mandel: “You know, traditionally, if you try something and you break your leg, that’s a hint: don’t do it again. But you guys don’t know that and to our pleasure you ended up doing something so fantastic. I also see a future. That end? You guys should get a contract with one of the mobile phone carriers. You look like those bars. How many Messoudis do I have? I can’t make a call.”
Sean Hayes: “I’m absolutely blown away. You know, I watch the show at home, I’m such a big fan. But to see you guys here in person right in front of me, it’s just, you guys need to know everything is bigger.”
In his “AGT” live blog, our recapper John Benutty had this to say about the performance: “A few weeks ago, prior to the QFs, one of the Messoudi Brothers broke his foot, but it didn’t set them back. Tonight they attempted the trick that they broke his foot on, challenging themselves to push through their most dangerous acts. They began the performance by incorporating Julianne into a very simple trick and then transitioned into more complex lifts directly in front of the judges’ table. They finished by making a three man balancing tower where all three basically hugged each other in a weird handstand flower-like thing that raised up in the air. The judges were all on board with the act, but Simon obviously took credit for inspiring them to raise the bar and do something more dangerous this time around.”
