The Cline twins impressed the judges with their incredible hockey puck abilities during the Season 17 auditions of 'America's Got Talent,' which aired on Tuesday, June 21, 2022. The twins might be one of the most unconventional performances on 'AGT' Season 17.

Connor and Carson Cline are identical twin boys from Ontario who do hockey stunts at the age of 16. In 2019, they appeared on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show.' According to their website, the twins have been chasing their gift for a decade, and they began posting on social media in 2014. Connor and Carson are Canadians from Waterloo.

The twins, who were just 13 years old at the time, assured the presenter that they would be performing "hockey tricks." DeGeneres didn't appear to understand what they were saying, but she quickly realized when Connor and Carson began twirling their hockey sticks and catching the pucks in the air. The Cline twins have since gained a social media following. They have over 60,000 TikTok followers and over 40,000 Instagram followers. They publish films of themselves performing different acrobatics, such as balancing bottles of maple syrup on their hockey sticks. On their website, the brothers also offer clothes that support their philosophy, “Be different and stay determined.” They intend to demonstrate to people “that anything is possible, and you can do anything you put your mind to.”

The Cline Twins, hockey tricksters, claimed their performance was unique and resistant to the judges' buzzers. Even if their personalities didn't pique the judges' interest, the twins avoided the buzzer by doing immaculate and coordinated routines with their hockey sticks and pucks. Simon compared them to "Beavis and Butthead," then said that it worked since he wasn't expecting much until they delivered a "fantastic" audition. The panel gave them four passionate Yes votes to advance to the next round.
