Alan Silva delivered an impressive performance on aerial silks to “Stupid Love” by Lady Gaga during the Quarterfinals Week 3 of America’s Got Talent 2020 (Season 15).
Silva, who happens to be the brother of AGT 2016 semi-finalist Alfredo of Deadly Games, did a dangerous move that previously broke his neck. He knows it’s crazy but he did not let fear stop him from recreating the dangerous stunt – a death drop over a set of steel spikes.

Heidi Klum said she had so much fun watching Alan have so much fun. “You just radiate so much joy when you like fly through the air, up until that moment when the spikes all of a sudden came onto the stage and you did the death drop right there and then. I’m so happy this time nothing happened. It was beautiful to watch, it was a lot of fun,” she said.
Howie Mandel revealed that Alan almost didn’t do it because the stage was wet and slippery, there was too much wind and it was usually done inside, and the stunt broke Alan’s neck the last time he did it.
America’s Got Talent Season 15
This season is most notable for its production being affected by the COVID-19 or coronavirus pandemic in 2020, which impacted audition sessions. The program initially moved to filming without an audience present at auditions, before ultimately suspending production. Auditions were later allowed to continue, but via online applications from those quarantined in their homes.
The production staff decided to push through with the broadcast as planned and premiere on May 26.
Production resumed the week of June 22, 2020, filming on a film backlot in Simi Valley, decorated to look like a drive-in movie theater. Everyone, including the judges and host Terry Crews, wore masks when not on camera. The Judge Cuts round was reduced from four episodes to one, and the acts were reduced from 72 to 60. The live shows will feature 44 acts over four weeks, compared to 36 acts appearing over three weeks last season.
Producers decided to include a virtual audience for the Live Shows and Universal Studios Hollywood was chosen as the venue for performances to take place.
Prior to the first quarter-final’s live broadcast, Cowell became involved in an electric bike accident that left him with a severe back injury. Cowell had surgery to repair the damage, and the production staff recruited guest judges like Kelly Clarkson and Kenan Thompson to stand in for him until doctors would allow him to return to AGT.
