The Lasalle Brothers were a juggling duo from Season 3 & Season 4 of America's Got Talent. The duo was possibly eliminated in the Vegas round. A year later they came back as The Flash , where It was eliminated in the Vegas Round.

Background

The Lasalle Brothers consisted of twin brothers Marty and Jake Lasalle, both times they submitted their audition onto Myspace.

Audition

The Lasalle Brothers's audition in Episode 307 consisted of dancing, and then both of them juggling while one stood on top of the other. Sharon Osbourne and at least one other judge voted "Yes", sending the duo to the Vegas Round.

Vegas Round

It is unknown whether or not The Lasalle Brothers were present during the Vegas Round as the duo was never seen, but even if it was, it did not advance to the Quarterfinals.

Audition

The Flash's audition in Episode 409 consisted of performing acrobatic feats such as one member hopping onto another member’s shoulder while the second member was juggling bowling pins. Piers Morgan buzzed the act. Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and David Hasselhoff all voted "Yes", sending the duo to the Vegas Round.

Vegas Round

The Flash appeared without performing in the Vegas Round. The duo's audition was not strong enough for the judges to send it to the Quarterfinals, eliminating it from the competition in Episode 412 along with Duo Design and The Kalinins.

After the Show

As of 2010, Marty LaSalle still lives in a trailer at Damrosch Park, working for the circus in guest relations and business development — he exercises infrequently and has not juggled publicly in 16 months. Jake, meanwhile, is in his second year of medical school at the University of California — he chose the institution because a top training ground, the San Francisco Circus Center, was across the street, though he, too, now avoids tossing things in the air and catching them.

They had the same genes but different dreams, and that spelled the untimely end of their juggling duo act. The brothers claimed they were earning $2,600 a week — combined — from the circus, and double that from regular side gigs. Now, Marty makes about half as much as he used to, Jake is racking up student loans. [1]
