LEGO Masters USA: the Circus is in Town

Cirque performers may juggle balls, but LEGO Masters juggle bricks like no one else!

Brick by brick, kids and adults alike have been building with LEGO everything their playful imagination can muster. But could they match Cirque du Soleil’s imaginative prowess?

That’s the challenge FOX’s LEGO Masters are tackling this week. To celebrate Cirque du Soleil’s 30th year in Las Vegas, we brought the circus to the small screen and dared participants to create builds as impressive as our performers’ acts!

Two trapeze artists from "O" and two Icarian Games performers from were present to mesmerize Brickmasters Amy & Jamie and inspire the Builders for their high-flying creations. Host Will Arnett might even learn an entertainment trick or two from them!

The Challenge

Joining forces with their competitors, the Builders are tasked to produce a Cirque show of their very own.

Divided in four acts, they are challenged to create from scratch a Contortionist Act that bends and twists in amazing ways, a Balancing Act that defies gravity, a Flying Act that gives the illusion of flying up above, and a Highwire Act, featuring a performer that can successfully move from one side of a tightwire to the other.

Will Builders be able to stick the landing or are they headed towards a clownish disaster? The all-new “Cirque du Soleil” episode of LEGO Masters airs Thursday, October 26 at 9/8c on FOX and at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CTV, CTV.ca, and the CTV App!
