An acrobalance act lit up the stage on night two of the New York Auditions.
The married-for-14-years couple, Rebecca and Donovan, performed a combination of dance and acrobats to the song “Secrets” by One Republic and impressed all the judges and the audience:
If you were a fan of Britain’s Got Talent, you might recognize Rebecca Peache and Donovan Jones as Crazehorse from season one. They were unfortunately eliminated during the second semi-finals. Here is that performance:
However, they didn’t let that discourage them and up until America’s Got Talent, they have been touring the world, including China, the United Kingdom, and most recently, Australia.
According to their website, Rebecca was born in London and studied at the Central school of Ballet and and the London Studio Centre. She has participated in different performances, such as a Can Can Dancer at Moulin Rouge in Paris. Donovan is a native to Long Island, New York, and studied at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. He was the principal singer and company manager for Jean Anne Ryan Productions for several years before creating the acrobalance act with his wife.
Together, Rebecca and Donovan have earned several Guiness World Records, such as the longest time holding a horizontal position and were featured in Cirque du Soleil. Rebecca achieved in 2007 the most rotations of a human flag, which was recorded in this video.
Rebecca and Donovan are active participants on their Facebook page and seem to be excited to have made it to the next round of America’s Got Talent. I thought their act was absolutely breathtaking, and as I have watched more videos of them tonight, I can’t wait to see what they will do in the coming months. How far do you think they will go, and do they have a fighting chance for the million dollars? I sure think so!
