The Giang brothers, two professional acrobatic performers from Vietnam, wowed spectators with a spectacular balancing act in the final round of Britain's Got Talent 2018.

Giang Quoc Co and Giang Quoc Nghiep risked their lives by attempting a dangerous routine for the first time without a safety harness.

With one brother on top of the other's head, the pair moved across a set of tiny podiums set high off the ground.

The Britain's Got Talent judges and a live audience of millions were overwhelmed with anxiety when a misplaced foot caused the podiums to collapse, forcing the brothers to jump to the final platform.

Judge Simon Cowell told the pair: "My God, you upped your game", while judge Amanda Holden could not look.

After a nervous pause, the Vietnamese acrobats jumped, and landed perfectly onto the final platform.

The audience burst into applause while the brothers punched the air with joy and appeared to be close to tears after they completed their risky performance.

"You can’t believe what you are watching. If you saw this in a movie you would say it was a special effect," said Judge David Walliams.

However,  their performance was not enough for the Giang brothers to win the grand prize worth £250,000 and a spot at The Royal Variety Performance.

Although they left the finals empty handed, the brothers won the hearts of many global viewers and became real heroes in Vietnam.

The grand prize went to Lee Ridley, called the Lost Voice Guy, a 37-year-old stand-up comedian from Newcastle.

He suffers from the neurological condition cerebral palsy, which leaves him unable to speak, so he uses a voice synthesizer to perform his act.
