Why Heidi Klum Jumped to Her Feet Before the Ramadhani Brothers’ Final Act Was Over

Just when you thought The Ramadhani Brothers couldn't go any higher, they perform hair-raising acrobatic performance.  

By Shameika Rhymes

America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League has incredible talent, but what about the performances that leave you wanting more and have you on the edge of your seat? The Ramadhani Brothers are such an Act.

How to Watch

Watch America’s Got Talent: Fantasy League on NBC and Peacock.

The duo is an acrobatic Act that have the capability of making viewer's jaws drop as they risk serious injury with their death-defying performance. The duo consists of Fadhili Ramadhani and Ibrahim Jobu and they hail from Tanzania but came to the US to compete on Season 18 of America’s Got Talent, where they finished in fifth place. Now they're back and they could win it all on America's Got Talent: Fantasy League.

What Did The Ramadhani Brothers Do for Their Finals Performance?

The Ramadhani Brothers had everyone on the edge of their seats starting off with a handstand balancing Act. It then transitioned into a head-to-head balancing Act (literally) that saw one brother hold onto two ladders, one on each side of them. While balancing his partner on his head, he took a step up. As if that wasn't enough, the platform they were on started to lift. He continued up the ladder, and once they made it to the top, they paused for what seemed like an eternity, giving the crowd enough time to bite their nails and fear for the Ramadahni's safety. Without missing a beat, the platform lowered and they descended down the ladders, a feat just as difficult as it was to go up.

At one point Heidi Klum even jumped out of her seat and started to scream for the Brothers.

The second half of the Act saw the Ramadhani Brothers take on a blindfold challenge. The base performer was blindfolded while the other brother balanced on top of his head once again as they climbed another taller ladder, paused for a few seconds, and climbed back down. The entire audience, Judges included, gave them a standing ovation.

“Even the Judges, they scream and they shouted. Give us a very good comment about the performance, so we are so happy for that," Fadhili told NBC Insider. "We are feeling blessed for that one. And this one give us energy that we always wanted to be back in America. Always wanted to be here to expose our talent." 

Why Howie Mandel Took the Ramadhani Brothers From Heidi Klum

During their time on AGT, Howie Mandel called the Ramadhani Brothers’ balancing Act the most terrifying he’d ever seen on America’s Got Talent, and with Heidi Klum's guidance on Fantasy League, they’ve pushed their skills to new heights. Mandel took the Ramadhani Brothers from Klum's team when he hit the Golden Buzzer and provided them a fast track to the Final on his team.

“I chose you because I think that you are the best of the best,” Howie told the duo.

He also said, “the Ramadhani Brothers do not know the word ‘no’ they are always willing to push the limit.”

Mandel's big suggestion for their Finals performance was to create an elevator lift platform. His hope was to showcase how dangerous what they do is while still maintaining the integrity of their talent.

“’It’s something different. So, I want you guys to do your performance with a big lift. I think this is a moment for you guys to show it.' So, this big advice we get from Howie,” Fadhili revealed to NBC Insider.

He also told the duo to bring their own big energy to the performance. They followed his advice exactly!
