But Mary eventually got up to show she was OK and exchanged a kiss with Tyce. But it literally slipped through their fingertips, and she tumbled to the floor below.
And Jeong, who in addition to being an actor is also a licensed physician, told the duo, "It's not 'America's Got Perfection.' This is 'America's Got Talent.' No one can do this".
An exhilarating trapeze act nearly turned deadly on America's Got Talent Tuesday night after a husband and wife duo attempted to perform a blindfolded free-fall trick.
The camera then cuts to the couple's distressed two-year-old son, who was being held by Mary's mother.
Fortunately, a heavy mat laid on the stage at the end of Mary's long fall.
The judges had been wowed by the double-act's high-flying antics until one did not go to plan.Adding even more tension to the performance, it was revealed that Tyce is almost blind due to a progressive eye disease. As she and her husband embraced each other, the audience and the judges rose to their feet to give them a standing ovation.
In fact, once Tyce joined her down on the stage - by jumping from his own trapeze bar - she offered to get back up there with him for do-over.
Judge Simon Cowell echoed Jeong's sentiments.
It's fine. I don't think they should try that. "I mean, it's okay".
The embarrassed couple asked if they could do a repeat performance to make up for their slip-up. So it doesn't make them not awesome.
Despite the mishap, the judges praised the act and the pair advanced through to the show's live rounds at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
"You nearly got hurt very badly and your first thought was 'Let me do that again!' only on America's Got Talent does that happen", added Howie Mandel.

They usually follow ferocious military campaigns and sometimes stifling sieges that effectively force rebels to surrender. The city of Daraa was the cradle of the uprising against President Bashar Assad more than seven years ago.
