Trapeze Duo in 'America's Got Talent' Mishap Always Insists on Safety Mat, Couple Says
Thankfully, Mary's fall was cushioned by the safety precaution.
Husband-and-wife duo Tyce and Mary were trying to impress the judges on the trapeze when she slipped right through his hands and plummeted to the ground as the audience — including the couple's 2-year-old son, Jaxx — watched in horror.
Thankfully, Mary's fall was cushioned by a safety mat. She was bruised, which Mary described as the "worst thing that happened," but wanted to start over.
"Can we do it again?" she asked.
The judges, however, stopped her.
"No! It's fine!" Spice Girls member Mel B said. "It's fine."
"I don't think there's ever been a singer on any of our competitions who's been note-perfect," Simon Cowell said. "It doesn't make them not amazing. It makes them human."
Mary told Inside Edition that in the past, some venues have asked them to perform without a safety mat. But now that they have a son, it's something they insist on, she said.
To anyone thinking the couple staged the fall for publicity, Tyce said, "No, we were definitely planning on catching that trick."
The couple, known as "Duo Transcend," was thrilled to learn they would be advancing to the next round despite the fall.
