Brazilian aerialist Alan Silva wowed the crowd with a shocking performance for his final act on season 15 of NBC’s America’s Got Talent. During the dangerous routine, Silva was soaking wet as he flew through the air through an indoor rainfall installation. He told HollywoodLife in an exclusive interview that performance was risky. “The water almost took me out of the competition and the finals because of the weather. There was condensation on the set, and that is when I decided to use that as an advantage to incorporate water into my performance,” he said.

The Latine acrobat went through with the performance regardless of the risk factor as he always wants to reinvent himself and try different things to make his act more spectacular. Viewers of America’s Got Talent can expect more awe-worthy tricks as he told HollywoodLife that he’s researching things to keep his acrobatic acts exciting. Silva loves to keep people on the edge of their seats.

Silva’s acts never disappoint and often include aerial silk work. However, some death-defying stunts aren’t worth the risk. He’s stated previously that he won’t do death drops over spikes again. He included the jaw-dropping stunt in a previous America’s Got Talent performance but has broken his neck doing a similar act in the past. The injury could have ended his career but, fortunately, Silva recovered. We can’t wait to see what incredible feat he comes up with next!

The aerialist is one of the top ten finalists hoping to win this season of America’s Got Talent. The grand prize is a $1 million cash prize. Silva told HollywoodLife that he would use the funds to support his family and cause near and dear to his heart such as anti-bullying organizations as he has experienced bullying.
