81yo great-grandma balances atop 26m-high pole without safety harness in new show

A new show coming to Bravo is showing that age really is just a number.

Little Big Shots: Forever Young follows performers in their golden years as they showcase their unbelievable hidden talents in an inspiring - and occasionally shocking - variety show.

From extraordinary singers and dancers, to gymnasts and more, these grandmas and grandpas have remarkable skills which remind us that decades of practice really can pay off.

The show, executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres and hosted by Steve Harvey, features awe-inspiring performers such as Miss Carla.

The high-flying Florida great-grandma and daredevil, part of the famous Wallenda family of circus performers, has performed on the sway pole for 52 years.

She shows off her talents 26m in the air, fearless and with no safety net, in a new excerpt from the show.

"Oh I am ready," she tells Harvey.

"Take your time" Harvey tells the great-grandmother as she pauses on her way up the pole.

"At 81 you get out of breath," she responds.

As she balances, many in the crowd below shield their eyes. Then she pulls a move you'll have to see to believe.

The full episode of Little Big Shots: Forever Young premieres Sunday, March 25 at 8:30pm on Bravo.
