Taekwondo Demonstration Team Couldn’t Perform at Tokyo Olympics, Lands Golden Buzzer at ‘AGT’


A taekwondo demonstration team left judges on “America’s Got Talent” with “goosebumps” after their audition performance and won host Terry Crews’ golden buzzer choice on June 15.

The performance: On the third night of auditions for the world-famous talent show, the World Taekwondo Demonstration Team blew the audience and judges away with their performance.

  • In the introduction, one of the team’s members revealed that they were invited to perform at the Olympics, but were unable to accept and travel due to COVID-19 restrictions. 
  • The team is made up of people from all over the world, including from the U.S. and South Korea. 
  • The demonstration team performed a series of high kicks, flips, jumps, and splitting wooden boards with kicks that stunned all four judges. 

Golden buzzer moment: Crews exclaimed that he’s “never seen anything like that in his life” and when Simon Cowell declared that the judges needed to vote, Crews stopped him and pressed the golden buzzer. 

  • Cowell calls the team’s performance one of the “most extraordinary things” he’s seen in all his years at “America’s Got Talent.” 
  • Crews explained that because the team was unable to get a gold medal at the Olympics, he’s going to “give them something golden right now” before slamming the buzzer. 
  • Cowell commended Crews by telling him it was a “great golden buzzer” choice, according to ET Online
