14-Year-Old Contortionist Earns Golden Buzzer on America’s Got Talent 2016 (VIDEO)

14-Year-Old contortionist Sofie Dossi earned the Golden Buzzer from guest judge Reba McEntire on the America’s Got Talent 2016 “Judge Cuts 2” on Wednesday, July 13, 2016!

Sofie starts out by dangling from a giant ring using only her neck strength to keep herself in place. She then descends from the ceiling upside down and lands with her hands on balancing pegs, striking a variety of stunning poses. And then, the finale: she shoots the bow-and-arrow with her feet…but this time, the arrow is on fire! And the target EXPLODES this time! The crowd goes wild! And understandably so. Watch the performance video below:

Result: Simon asks Sofie if her dad made all the props, and she confirms that he did, and also that she’s self-taught. He tells Sofie she’s like something out of Game of Thrones. Howie thinks Sofie is amazing, and feels she could probably wrap herself up in an envelope and mail herself. Mel B thinks Sofie topped her already amazing audition, and wonders how the hell she did it. Reba, meanwhile, feels actions speak louder than words…


Reba says she hit her button because she’s never seen anything like what Sofie just did. Nick interviews Sofie backstage, and she’s too excited to even talk. I’m stoked for her. She totally deserved to go through. With that said, I have no idea how she tops this.

But what do you think of Sofie Dossi? Sound off in the comments!
