Background

Sofie Dossi is a self-taught contortionist and hand balancer. She became captivated at age 12 after watching an online video. Having been a competitive gymnast and dancer, she had a great foundation of strength and flexibility and advanced her skills using YouTube videos as her teacher, combined with disciplined practice at home. Within a year, she began performing at family and friend celebrations and gradually caught the eye of entertainment companies that began to hire her for larger events.

Dossi's inspiration is to enthrall audiences by showing them a unique performance they have never seen before, so she is always motivated to create innovative shows. [1]

Audition

Sofie Dossi's audition in Episode 1105 consisted of bending her knees over her head and balancing on one hand on a cane. With her legs still bent, she then grabbed an apple with her legs and took a bite out of it. Finally, while performing a handstand, she shot a bow with her feet and hit a target feet away. Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all voted "Yes," sending Sofie to the Judge Cuts.
