About Jonathan Goodwin

A Welsh TV escapologist as well as a daredevil is known for Jonathan Goodwin. He is a contestant who has made it to the season 15 quarterfinals of America's Got Talent. Recently, he is bringing the thrills on 'AGT'. The season 15 contestant has made it to the quarterfinals, and he's in a position to surprise the judges and lovers as soon as once more. The season 15 quarterfinals have arrived and daredevil Jonathan Goodwin has transformed a pacesetter along with his jaw-dropping risk act. He appeared on the 13th series of "Britain's Got Talent", made it to the finals performing "buried alive" the first time this stunt had ever been attempted on a stage as of 2019. Britain's Got Talent fans were left mesmerized by Jonathan Goodwin, who shocked by his Houdini style daredevil stunt that saw him set on fire. He impressed judges Simon Cowell, Alesha Dixon, Amanda Holden, and David Walliams and went on to receive four nods to head through to the next round. Previously, he appeared on Channel 4 TV show Dirty Tricks and has later appeared in TV specials The Seven Stupidest Things to Escape From, and Deathwish Live. He even had his own series, on UKTV's Watch channel The Incredible Mr. Goodwin. He has more than 41.2 followers on his Instagram account under the official account of @jonathangoodwinofficial where he updates with all his daredevil tricks and fitness photos. 

Goodwin admitted that his latest stunt, 'Trial By Fire,' was so dangerous that he didn't even get to practice it that much and his own mother didn't want him to try performing it. He upped his danger act to a fiery new level. He also admitted that this stunt, which required him to be set on fire, was so nerve-wracking that his own mother didn't want him to try performing it. But Jonathan is a true professional and wanted to show he had what it takes to entertain millions of Americans on a weekly basis. He revealed that he only had 20 seconds until the safety fuse completely burned out and then engulfed him in flames, putting him at risk of being burnt to a crisp if he didn't escape his shackles in time. Since the stunt was so dangerous, he was also bathed in a fire-resistant gel and was wearing multiple layers of clothing. As it tuned out, Goodwin made short work of his Houdini-esque escape, managing to quickly escape his handcuffs and pick the padlock to release his head which had been sealed up in a steel compartment. He confirmed by smiling that he had emerged safely to risk his life for another day and the judges expressed their relief and praised him to the skies. On social media, people were similarly impressed, with one fan saying that he had nearly gotten a heart attack. Another viewer was enthralled by his performance, saying it was both scary and awesome. It looks like he has just had one of his strongest showings on 'America's Got Talent', but now it's up to the viewers to decide. The acts that performed Tuesday were: Kelvin Dukes, Bonavega, The Voices of Our City Choir, Kameron Ross and Daneliya Tuleshova (singers); The Shape (dance group); Bad Salsa (salsa duo); Spyros Brothers (variety act); Alexis Brownley (dog act); Vincent Marcus (impressionist); Jonathan Goodwin (daredevil). Voices of Our City Choir, BAD Salsa, and Daneliya Tuleshova were all voted through by the viewers at home. Congratulations are also in order for Spyros Brothers, the winner of this week’s Dunkin’ Save, as well as Jonathan Goodwin. When he and fellow in-danger act Alexis Brownley received the same number of judges' votes, it came down to America's votes, which sent Goodwin through. That means we had to say goodbye to BONAVEGA, Kameron Ross, Kelvin Dukes, The Shape, Vincent Marcus, and Alexis Brownley.
