Acromazing take the title as 2022 AGT champions


Acromazing took home $100,000 in prizemoney

The all-female acrobatic gymnastics troupe Acromazing has been crowned as the new AGT champions in a public vote during the Grand Final that saw six acts take to the stage tonight on Channel Seven and 7plus.

After host Ricki-Lee revealed the results, Acromazing member Maddi Lacey said: “This is life-changing. We just want to thank everybody in the crowd tonight, every contestant, all of the girls in Acromazing, all of our beautiful coaches, and all of Australia for voting for us to win, and our beautiful judges too.”

Throughout Acromazing’s AGT journey, their routines and displays of strength enthralled the audience and judges, who called their technique “faultless” and their movements “captivating”. Their gravity-defying Grand Final performance was no exception.

David Walliams lauded the group for thinking out of the box with their compelling performance and unusual music. Shane Jacobson added: “Your entire routines are based on trust. Everything looks so beautiful, it’s like poetry in motion.”

Alesha Dixon said their Grand Final routine was “infectious to watch”, fused with “heart and soul” and their song choice was “perfection”.

Kate Ritchie said: “Incredibly beautiful. I feel so proud of you. I have a young daughter myself and seeing a unit of girls out there working so beautifully together, you should be so proud.”

Acromazing took home $100,000 in prizemoney after defeating five Grand Finalists: Ukrainian aerial sensation Oleg, head-to-head balancing phenomenon Ramadhani Brothers, comedy superstar in the making Emo Majok, travelling circus clown Walison Muh and 11-year-old rising pop star Sienna Katelyn.

Earlier in the year, Mediaweek spoke to Digby Mitchell, supervising executive producer at Fremantle Australia about putting the latest season together.

“You just don’t know what’s coming. One minute you’ve got little girls dancing ballet, and the next minute you’ve got sword swallowers and comedians. It’s just such a mixed bag of talent, you never know what’s around the corner. I think that excitement and the unknown keeps people engaged,” Mitchell said.
