An audience cheering on trapeze performers on U.S. television show America's Got Talent was aghast last night when an acrobat slipped through her partner's hands and landed on the stage, which was in flames. The couple's 2-year-old son was in the audience in the arms of his grandmother, who covered her eyes as the audience gasped.

Luckily, like all good trapeze acts, Tyce and Mary had taken some basic safety precautions and had a thick protective mat on the floor, softening the blow of her fall.

She and Tyce offered to do the stunt again but the judges were having none of it - adamant that Mary and Tyce had done more than enough to qualify for the live shows.

Thankfully Mary eventually returned to her feet, reassuring that she was fine, appearing to be suffering nothing more than sheepishness.

America's Got Talent is full of exhilarating, daredevil-style stunts, which usually end with the audience being left in awe of how the acts managed to pull them off. Although, he admitted falling off a trapeze was more unsafe than falling off key. Despite the mishap, the judges gave the couple a standing ovation.

Chelsea have also been linked with the 25-year-old, who began his career with Internacional before moving to Roma two years ago. Liverpool are awaiting the response of the Brazil worldwide before pressing ahead with the world record deal for a goalkeeper.

"No, it's fine!" yelled Mel B. "This is America's Got Talent", guest host Ken Jeong said.

"I don't think there's ever been a singer on any of our competitions who's been note-perfect", Simon Cowell said, reiterating Jeong's remarks.

Tyce, who is legally blind in one eye, was blindfolded before attempting the final trick in their routine, hanging upside down as his wife Mary dropped from above. "I mean, it's okay!" "It still doesn't make them not-amazing. It makes them human", he said, adding that the "consequences on this are slightly worse than falling off key, whereas you almost broke your neck".

"It's not America's Got Perfection".
