Another Austinite has made it onto “America’s Got Talent” this season.

Look for Nikki McBurnett on an episode set to air this week.

Producers describe McBurnett, who has been active in the local roller derby scene, as a “41-year-old daredevil grandma.”

On the show, she’ll take part in “an ‘explosive’ challenge you’ve got to see to believe,” according to a publicist.

McBurnett’s appearance comes two weeks after another Austinite popped up on the hit NBC show.

Catch “America’s Got Talent” Tuesday at 7 p.m. on KXAN.
