Howie Mandel wasted no time in throwing down the big challenge for Season 2 of Canada’s Got Talent: give us, he said, “that wow moment.”

He got it early on during Tuesday’s Citytv season premiere.

Four strapping lads who call themselves GBA, brought big time “wow” for Mandel and fellow judges Lilly Singh, Trish Stratus and Kardinal Offishall.

Originally from Guinea, a country in West Africa, the muscular four, who have relocated to Montreal, stepped on stage stripped to the waist. They then flipped, jumped, stacked and slammed themselves all over the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls

The crowd, the judges and host Lindsay Ell went wild after the demonstration of agility and strength.

“That’s probably one of the most dangerous things I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Mandel after three members who were stacked on top of one another launched themselves face-first towards the stage floor.


Singh saw them as “real life superheroes.” GBA got four big yeses from the blown away judges.
