In a clip obtained by Parade ahead of the season's return on Tuesday night, the actress joined whipping record-holder Adam Winrich for his performance.

However, while the set up was quite simple, involving Sofia simply standing there, it quickly turned risky as he began to whip around her.

"No, no, no," she exclaimed out of terror as he then began loudly whipping, and the audience quickly began recoiling out of fear themselves.

Adam then started moving closer to Sofia, who loudly screamed: "Aye!" as his whips grew faster, with her other judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, and Howie Mandel watching intently.

A risky audition with whips left Sofia in a state of shock

After a rapid round of more whips, he finally concluded his routine, leaving a shell-shocked Sofia to find her bearings as Heidi began to applaud and Simon jeered: "More! More!"

The act stood in stark contrast to the one Sofia gave her golden buzzer to earlier in the season, those being the Mayyas, a dance troupe from Lebanon.
