America’s Got Talent: Extreme has been showcasing an array of daring acts in its inaugural season, but one performance has left a lasting impression. Erika Lemay mesmerized both judges and audiences alike with her aerial silk routine, executed at a dizzying height of 90 feet in the air, buoyed by balloons that elicited gasps from judges Simon Cowell, Nikki Bella, and Travis Pastrana.

Viewers were captivated by the 38-year-old Erika’s performance, likening her graceful movements to soaring through the sky, prompting Simon Cowell to draw parallels to the iconic Disney film, Up.

Hailing from Canada, the humble yet dedicated artist revealed that she has been honing her aerial silk skills for the past 25 years. However, in 2018, a significant shoulder injury forced her into retirement and subsequent rehabilitation.

Despite the setback, Erika’s triumphant return to the stage resulted in a well-deserved Group Golden Buzzer, marking a poignant moment in her career. All four judges, along with host Terry, unanimously agreed on the decision, praising her flawless performance.

The heartwarming twist came at the end of the show when the judges surprised Erika with the Golden Buzzer, a testament to her talent and resilience, and a moment that truly encapsulated the spirit of the competition.
