Yury Kuznetsov was a World Champion and international level athlete in Russia for Sports Acrobatics. He has since performed in the Russian Circus, gala events, was a flyer for the amazing teeterboard act in Cirque du Soleil's show "Kooza." 1


Duo Resonance's audition in Episode 802 consisted of performing acrobatic balancing feats such as Yury supporting on his back Nina standing up on one foot while just pushing his two arms toward the ground. Howard Stern, Mel B, and at least one other judge voted "Yes," sending the duo to the Vegas Round.

Vegas Round

Duo Resonance was sorted into the "Acrobat" category in the Vegas Round. The duo's performance in Episode 808 consisted of performing more acro-balance feats, this time on a spinning platform. Its performance was strong enough for the judges to send it to the Quarterfinals in Episode 809.


Duo Resonance's Week 5 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 818 consisted of performing acro-balance feats such as Yury doing a handstand on Nina's shoulders and sliding on a rotating circular platform, all to Glen Hansard's "Falling Slowly." The pair finished in either fourth or fifth place in America's Vote in Episode 819. In the Judges' Choice, although Heidi Klum voted for it, Howard Stern, Mel B, and Howie Mandel, did not, eliminating Duo Resonance from the competition instead of John Wing.

Wild Card

Immediately after its performance, Duo Resonance was selected by Heidi Klum as her Wild Card pick for the Semifinals.


Duo Resonance's Week 1 Semifinals performance in Episode 820 consisted of demonstrating acro-balance feats with a clear box to Pink's "Glitter." The duo did not receive enough votes to be sent to the Finals in Episode 821, eliminating it from the competition along with Jonathan Allen, instead of Forte.
