Brothers Giang Quoc Nghiep and Giang Quoc Co from Vietnam left the Britain's Got Talent (BGT) judges speechless with their performance.

Britain's Got Talent judges and audience impressed by the ineradicable acrobatics performance of the Giang brothers on April 21

Judge Amanda Holden commented "It was utterly incredible and my heart was in my mouth for all of it.

"I don't know where you find the strength from," she said

Simon Cowell added that it was like watching the Olympics rather than a talent show.

Speaking to the Word Vietnam Newspaper, Nghiep said that he went to hospital five days ago to check his neck, and he found out that it is not straight. It suffers a lot of pressure so now it’s deformed.

“The doctor advised me to stop my career," he said. "But it’s just advice, I can choose to keep doing it. The next time I fall off, my neck could break.”

Giang Quoc Co, 33, and Giang Quoc Nghiep, 29, are a pair of brothers from Ho Chi Minh City. They said they had been doing their acrobatics since they were 10 years old and have to practise four to six hour every day to nail their incredible routines.

While they are strangers to talent competitions, the pair already broke Guinness World Records in 2016 when they climbed the stairs of the Cathedral of Girona in Spain with one sibling balanced atop the other using head-to-head contact. They scaled 90 steps in 52 seconds, breaking the previous record of 25 steps in a minute by Tang Tao and Su Zengxian from China.

Speaking to Dtinews after breaking the world record, the brothers admitted that they mostly perform in Europe because of their popularity.

"Career life of circus performers is short and hard and they are not well known in Vietnam," Nghiep said. "We are now working in France, Spain and Germany. But we're happy that we are able to bring some small achievement to Vietnam. This is also a chance for us to introduce our circus art to the world."
