While El Invertebrado shocked the entire panel, Mandel and Klum jumped out of their seats. Vergara, who is known for starring in Modern Family, laughed, “I almost said a bad word,” while the former two laughed on. The performer then proceeded to go to the stage and started his act which included a combination of contortion and brilliant pole dancing. El Invertebrado elicited shocks and gasps from the judges as well as the audience as they stared at him in disbelief.

He showcased his flexibility and strength and even climbed the pole with one of his legs behind his head. Klum remarked, “He doesn’t look human,” as the talented 21-year-old dancer continued his routine and held onto the pole with his feet. El Invertebrado’s body bending, flexible, and amazing performance earned him a standing ovation from the judges and the audience. He has previously been a semi-finalist on Dominicana’s Got Talent.
