Warning! The following contains spoilers for America's Got Talent. Read at your own risk!
America's Got Talent can be sweet, heart-warming, silly, and occasionally sassy. One thing this NBC competition typically isn't is "sexy," but man, the Messoudi Brothers have changed that in Season 14. The all-male acrobat team was back at it again with their pecs poppin', their stunts on point, and even a part for one of the show's judges to play in their latest act.
The boys called on Julianne Hough to join them on stage, and together, they all got a bit freaky bending every which way. Don't worry, it was still safe for young eyes, but what came after may have had some avert their gaze out of fear that the Messoudi brothers may be short by a member or two in the future with one mistake. Seriously, things looked pretty dangerous in this one once Hough was off the stage.
It's almost depressing to see how much core strength the Messoudi Brothers have and just know that I'll never be on that level. That doesn't make it any less impressive of course, as these guys really pushed things to the limit in what was an absolute justification for advancement into the finals, in my book. It's especially remarkable that they were able to incorporate Jullianne Hough and turn her into a meaningful part of the act!
Although there's certainly something there for the Messoudi Brothers to have a meaningful career following America's Got Talent, do they have enough to win the competition? Admittedly, it's hard to justify giving these glamorous guys a spot over heartwarming singers like Kodi Lee, or even the comedic impressions of Greg Morton. Online viewers have equated the act to a real-life version of Magic Mike, which is quite the compliment but isn't quite the family friendly type of winner AGT has been known for.
With that said, it doesn't seem like the Messoudi Brothers need a win on America's Got Talent to gain a fanbase once their run is complete. These guys can do NBA halftime shows, a Vegas act, Cirque du Soleil, or maybe even Chippendales and thrive provided they're allowed to balance on each other shirtless. That's a gift not many people in life were blessed with, so hopefully these guys find whatever niche allows for peak success following their time on AGT.
America's Got Talent Season 14 is still rolling strong on NBC Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Fall television isn't all that far off, and CinemaBlend is the place to be for any and everyone looking to stay up to date on what's happening on television in the meantime.
