Realis's full audition in Episode 101 was never televised, but the girl of the group performed a handstand on her partner's hands. It is unknown whether or not the duo was buzzed, but at least two judges voted "Yes," sending the act to the Semifinals.


Realis's Week 2 Semifinals performance in Episode 106 consisted of the duo dancing together while performing acrobatic feats such as flips in the air and one-hand hand-to-hand handstands. Piers MorganBrandy Norwood, and David Hasselhoff all gave Realis "✓" votes. The judges chose the duo as their Week 2 pick to move onto the Finals without being voted on by America in Episode 107.


Before its performance, Realis was guided by celebrity coach Gene Lubas. Realis's Finals performance in Episode 114 consisted of dancing and performing more acrobatic feats such as two consecutive double front flips and  a hand-hand handstand in the air.. Piers Morgan, Brandy Norwood, and David Hasselhoff all gave Realis "✓" votes.


At the finale, Realis was eliminated from the competition in Episode 115 after it was revealed that it finished the competition in the Bottom 5 of the Top 10.
