AMERICA’s Got Talent had exciting performers shine on stage in today’s episode.
It’s the last week before the AGT finale and Grace Good decided she wanted to make her mark on the stage.
Grace is an acrobatic hula hoop player who adds extra flair to the audience by setting her props on fire.
Her performance began simply: She spun five black hula hoops around different parts of her body.
Once she had the audience’s attention, she dropped the hoops and swapped them for another hula hoop covered in fire.
She attached a thick red ribbon to her foot that carried her into the air.
Grace began to rotate her body rapidly as the hula hoop rotated around her waist without assistance.
Towards the end of her televised performance, the talented performer lies on her back and twirls her flaming staff with her feet.
Unfortunately for Grace, the baton slipped from her feet and rolled away from her.
She caught it with her left hand and continued her routine without any problems.

When her performance ended, Sofia Vergara, 51, and Heidi Klum, 50, gave Grace a standing ovation.
Heidi said she loved watching a “strong woman” fight for a place in the final.
Simon Cowell, 63, called her “ambitious” and said the end of her act was “amazing”.
Then it was Howie Mandel’s turn to give his opinion on the performance, and he noticed Grace’s mistake.
The 67-year-old said: “I think the pressure hit you. For a moment you fell. They dropped the baton.”
His accusation bothered Sofia, who screamed, “No!”
Howie replied, “Yes, she did! I’m an expert when it comes to fire hula hoops and hanging.”
“But, you know, America may have loved it.”
AGT fans on X, formerly known as Twitter, noticed the mistake, as did Howie, but many think he was too harsh.
One said, “Okay, I say Howie has a point; she lost the baton for a moment, but I remember thinking she saved it so effortlessly.”
“And the fact that some people didn’t even notice it proves that. I thought it was great!”
Another said: “Terry tells Howie to stand up and show us his flawless performance haha he couldn’t hold a candle to her performance.”
A third said: “@howiemandel #AGT You were too hard on Grace Good. Your skills are amazing! I’d like to see you spin a hula hoop.”
Someone else said: “Grace Good is absolutely everything #AGT is about.”
