If you’ve ever had a headache from a too tight ponytail, Danila Bim’s work may not be for you. In a show of incredible physical strength – and the long-lasting power of a good conditioner – the Brazilian aerial artist suspended herself 10 meters in the air from nothing but a ring attached to her hair during an audition for America’s Got Talent. “This looks like it’s going to hurt,” host Terry Crews said before her performance. Sitting in a meditative position, Bim sucked a deep breath before the rope attached to her hair pulled her up into the air, where she continued to show her impressive strength and flexibility with her graceful dance moves – no floor required.
The highlight of Danila’s performance came when she executed several pirouettes in a row, all without putting a single foot on the ground as the audience and judges raved from the other side of the stage. Appropriately, the audition was set for an alternative cover to Phil Collins’ “In the Air Tonight” by Joseph William Morgan. So far this season, we’ve seen some talented athletes compete for a spot on the show, but Bim’s performance is one we think about all week. Eight has not yet revealed if the judges will put her through, but she will get a virtual golden buzz from us. Watch Bim’s full audition here.
