Generally the results shows for “America’s Got Talent” are long, drawn-out hours featuring a few performances that you can fast-forward your DVR through in order to get to the results. But on Wednesday night’s show (July 20), there was a an acrobatic act called “Traces” that blew us away.

It started out with one guy doing tricks while he spun in a giant metal ring, which was cool enough, but soon he was joined by 5 other men plus one woman and the group started performing all sorts of pole stunts and tumbling tricks.

It was amazing. The choreography was spectacular and they even seemed to be telling a bit of a story during the act. We definitely think if Steven Retchless doesn’t win, he should try to get in with this group. Traces is scheduled for an off-Broadway run at the Union Square Theatre, running from July 29 to Oct. 9.
