Rollerskating duo stun America's Got Talent judges

A British-born rollerskating duo made it through to the America’s Got Talent live shows with a hair-raising stunt that left Mel B unable to watch their performance.

Sibling skaters Billy and Emily England carried out a trick that saw Emily holding onto nothing but her brother’s beard while he spun her around in the air. 

Tuesday night’s episode of AGT saw 20 acts competing for just seven spots in the live shows during the judges’ cuts round.

Laverne was given a golden buzzer with her guest judge seat and pressed it to send nine-year-old singing sensation Celine Tam through to the live shows.

Former Spice Girl Mel turned her seat around for the jaw-dropping climax of Emily grabbing hold of Billy's, which they admitted was too painful to rehearse.

The stunt was made even more nerve-wracking when Emily revealed their aunt, world-renowned aerial silk star Eva Garcia, and uncle, trapeze artist Gilles Gonnerton, had both fallen to their deaths during extreme aerial acts.

Surprise: Celine, who belted out a flawless rendition of How Am I Supposed To Live Without You was left open-mouthed as gold confetti dropped from the season and Laverne walked on stage to give her a hug

The AGT audience roared with approval at the end of brother-sister performance, which saw Emily’s head spinning just inches away from the stage.

While crew members swept away strands of hair from Billy’s beard, Mel said she could tell the performance was incredible from the audience members’ faces.

Guest judge Laverne Cox, said: 'It was so horrifying. If I put you through, what do you come back and do next and will America be having a heart attack?'

Heidi Klum gushed: 'It’s the best act of the day, hands down.'

Celine, who belted out a flawless rendition of How Am I Supposed To Live Without You was left open-mouthed as gold confetti dropped from the season and Laverne walked on stage to give her a hug.

She told her: “I just want to eat you up and take you home. You are so adorable and so cute and your voice is amazing. I’m really blown away. You are so talented.”

Celine’s sister, Dion, blew a kiss from the audience while their parents – who are huge fans of the French-Canadian singing sensation – also cheered.
