ThroWings is based in Boston, Massachusetts. The group consists of married couple Anny, who is from Canada, and Andre, who is from Belarus. Anny was once working with another partner, and she had a bad fall. As a result, she broke her spine.
The recovery was difficult, but not a long time after, Anny met Andre. Smitten with each other, the two eventually decided to perform as a duo. He looked her in the eyes and reassured her that he would catch her, motivating her to return to aerial performance.
They now preform on a circus called 1903 Circus on Sydney, Australia.
ThroWings' audition in Episode 1105 consisted of performing a Russian Cradle act: an aerial circus act in which Andre hung from a large rectangular frame and swung, tossed, and caught Anny as she flipped in the air. Howie Mandel, Mel B, Heidi Klum, and Simon Cowell all voted "Yes," sending the duo to the Judge Cuts.

ThroWings' Judge Cuts performance in Episode 1110 consisted of performing their Russian Cradle act, this time with additional flips in the air and Anny being blindfolded as Andre tossed her. Howie Mandel and Heidi Klum gave the duo standing ovations. ThroWings' performance was strong enough for the judges to send the duo to the Quarterfinals along with The Clairvoyants.

ThroWings' Week 2 Quarterfinals performance in Episode 1113 consisted of performing their Russian Cradle act, this time with strobe lights and a successful trick that when performed years ago, had previously sent Anny to a hospital. Heidi Klum gave the duo a standing ovation. Simon Cowell buzzed the act although after it was finished to avoid distraction and injury with buzzer surprise. ThroWings finished in sixth, seventh, or eighth place in America's Vote. In the Dunkin Save, they received fewer online votes than Sal Valentinetti. In the Judges' Choice, although Heidi Klum and Simon Cowell did not vote for the duo, Howie Mandel and Mel B did, forcing a tiebreaker; whichever act had received more votes from America would progress. ThroWings received fewer votes than Kadie Lynn, eliminating the duo from the competition in Episode 1114.
