Our minds are blown by this 14-year-old contortionist on "America's Got Talent"
On this season of America’s Got Talent, all eyes are on the teen contestants. We fell in love with 12-year-old Grace VanderWaal, who is being called “the next Taylor Swift, and got chills listening to 16-year-old singer (and cancer survivor) Calysta Bevier’s rendition of “Fight Song.”
The latest teen to mesmerize us on the America’s Got Talent stage isn’t a singer, however — she’s a contortionist, and her performance was absolutely mind-blowing.
Her name is Sofie Dossi, and when she walked on stage in a full leather-look body suit, we just KNEW she was about to do something amazing. She’s only 14 years old, and she’s completely self-taught — which is hard to believe, given her impressive routine. She bends herself into what basically amounts to a human pretzel, and puts us all to shame (should we be doing more yoga?).
She takes a bite of an apple by feeding herself WITH HER FEET, balances on beams no larger than a brick, and while watching, you can’t imagine that she can outdo herself — and then, the grand finale comes. She picks up a bow and arrow, and to be honest, we were a little scared watching. However, she shoots her target nearly RIGHT in the center, and the judges were super impressed. While they didn’t pick her for the show, they gave her a standing ovation, and the crowd absolutely loved her.
