Maxim Popazov is the Russian-born hand balancer competing on America’s Got Talent, Season 12. For his audition, while wearing a sharp white suit, shoes and hat, Maxim will stack a high pile of chairs and balance himself on top, with one hand. He has performed the act several times including in the Absinthe Show at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Maxim now lives in Las Vegas with his equally talented wife Maria Sarach-Popazova, also of Moscow. They both come from “Russian circus royalty” and together perform in Popazov’s Nikulin Circus. Watch Maria’s sexy balancing act “I Put a Spell on You” below. Will she join him on AGT as he advances? America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays at 8pm on NBC.
