‘America’s Got Talent’: Gymkana has scary situation due to fire mishap

This was a scary situation.

On Tuesday night’s episode of “America’s Got Talent,” there was a brief moment during the show that was quick to remind us that this is in fact live TV.

While Gymkana was trying to perform their tumbling-themed routine on Tuesday night, there was a moment when the group put up a ring of fire for some of its stars to jump through while performing some stunts. Unfortunately, one performer fell a bit short, and the ring toppled off its stand as a result of the collision onto the young man’s body.. Thankfully, no one ended up getting caught on fire — but unfortunately for the group, the act came to a screeching halt. (We learned later that the group was wearing fireproof suits.)

In all likelihood, this fiasco likely means that we have seen the end of this act on this show. At the same time, though, we do have to ask the question — will this sort of scary situation earn them sympathy?

Was this the most shocked you have ever been watching a live show like this?
