Concerned viewers have slammed “America’s Got Talent” for the risqué performance.
The Ramadhani Brothers appeared in the second week of America’s Got Talent Season 18, but fans have expressed concern for the couple.
The two brothers from Tanzania displayed their incredible acrobatic skills and their head-to-head balancing shocked the live audience and TV viewers.
Fadhili Ramadhani and Ibrahim Jobu performed in front of judges Simon Cowell (63), Sofia Vergara (50), Heidi Klum (50) and Howie Mandel (67) in a nerve-racking show.
At one point, the performers climbed a ladder, one balancing on the other’s head completely hands-free.
As they faced the ladder, presenter Terry Crews, 54, admitted: “Oh my god I don’t know if I can watch this.”
The judges all looked terrified of what was to come and Heidi clutched her neighbor Howie’s arm.
After the talented duo made it to the top of the ladder, Terry turned to the camera and revealed, “There’s no net!”
This meant that when the Ramadhani brothers fell from above, they would fall straight onto the hard floor of the stage.
Taking to Reddit, one horrified fan ranted, “I find what the brothers did super scary and dangerous, and Terry even said they had no net…why would they risk a serious injury and have another incident like Jonathan Goodwin had?” He’s paralyzed.

RISK TOO MUCH?
Jonathan Goodwin is a retired Welsh stunt performer, escape artist and daredevil who rose to fame after appearing on America’s Got Talent.
However, after originally making the semi-finals, Jonathan decided to return to America’s Got Talent in late 2021, this time as a participant in the new spin-off series America’s Got Talent: Extreme.
The show was described on the NBC website as “the most outrageous, unique and mind-blowing performances of tremendous scale and magnitude that simply cannot be confined to a theatrical stage.”
In his act, the 43-year-old was pinched between two suspended cars as he attempted to escape from a straitjacket upside down from 30 feet in the air.
Jonathan’s fiancee, Sherlock actress Amanda Abbington, announced in May that her partner now uses a wheelchair after sustaining multiple serious injuries while performing less than two years ago.
She explained: “He fell 9 meters and lost a kidney, fractured both shoulder blades and shattered both legs. He suffered third-degree burns, fractured his spine and severed his spinal cord, and almost died. And then he almost died again on the operating table.”
“Until there’s stem cell surgery or what Elon Musk designs with the little chip, it’s going to be like this forever.”
‘IT’S NOT WORTH IT’
At the show’s season premiere, acrobatics group Three G took the stage and proved that routines don’t always go according to plan.
Shortly after beginning their routine, the group of three women found themselves in a shocking, gravity-defying tower. Unfortunately, they soon fell to the ground.
The judges looked concerned, Sofia turned away and tried to calm the audience.
The determined trio got back up and performed a few more tricks, but tension mounted when backstage staff pulled out a mat to place onstage behind them.
Just before they finished the finale of their three-minute performance, they fell again.
They got up and tried again despite Howie’s fear, but fell to the ground for the third time.
Taking to Twitter after the performance, a concerned viewer said: “I supported them but it wasn’t a clean performance. They were very shaky. The judges should have told them to practice more and come back next year. It’s not worth breaking your neck.”
