Daredevil becomes 40-yard human field goal on 'America's Got Talent'

An acrobat wowed the judges and fans of the television show "America's Got Talent" after being fired from a cannon through the uprights of a Newark, N.J. football field goal post 40-yards from the goal line.

David "The Bullet" Smith performed the death-defying stunt while competing on the popular talent show Tuesday night.  The winner of AGT goes home with $1 million and a chance to headline a Las Vegas show.

Smith— holding a colorful football— was fired from the barrel of a huge cannon, soared forty yards through the air  before splitting the uprights of the goal post and landing in a net lining part of the end zone.

The celebrity judges— Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel stood in jaw-dropping awe on the sideline while hundreds of fans cheered after Smith's amazing feat.

According to Smith, 85% of all people who perform this stunt, sooner or later, are killed doing it.

Stern, aka Fartman, joked that Smith should be fired from AGT host Nick Cannon the next time.  To which Mariah Carey's husband sternly replied, "It ain't gonna happen."

The semifinalists will be announced Wed. night. and, coincidentally, the Jets camp opens up the next day.  If you look closely, you might see Rex Ryan taking notes on the sidelines.
