The World Taekwondo Demonstration Team put on a jaw dropping performance for NBC's America's Got Talent TV show Tuesday night that had the judges seemingly giddy and the squad getting automatically advanced to the final, live round of competition. They pulled off on an impressive display of aerial breaking that saw members of the team catapulting themselves off each other to kick boards that were being held close to 20 feet in the air. Before the judges could even vote, host Terry Crews gave the group his "golden buzzer" that granted automatic entrance to the live round.
The multinational team of mostly South Koreans and Americans explained that they were scheduled to perform at this year's Olympics but the demonstration was canceled due to the COVID pandemic. Instead, they'll have to settle for the opportunity to compete on America's Got Talent's live show from Hollywood later in the year.
