Duo Aero from "America's Got Talent 2011" is one of the Top 48 acts in Season 6 of the NBC talent competition series. They are a trapeze duo from Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Samson Finkelstein was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba and moved to Saint Paul, Minnesota, at the age of six. In Saint Paul, he began to train and perform in the circus arts at the age of nine and has been doing so ever since. In addition to duo trapeze, Samson trained in juggling, teeterboard, aerial straps, German wheel, Russian swing and Russian bar. While training his circus acts, Samson received his Bachelors of Civil Engineering from the University of Minnesota. His focus was on structural engineering, and Samson spent the summer of 2009 interning for Stage Technologies and installing the automation systems for Cirque du Soleil's "Viva Elvis" in Las Vegas.

In 2010, during his last semester at the University of Minnesota, Samson, who had teamed up with Shannon Maguire, was invited to participate in the International Circus Festival of Latina. Samson and Shannon won the Press Association award for their performance. After impressing the European circus community at the Latina festival, Samson and Shannon were invited to perform for Circus Krone, the largest circus in Europe.

Currently, Samson and Shannon have been performing their trapeze act around the United States and running their circus production company, Blue Phoenix Circus Troupe.
