Light Acts are pretty common in America’s Got Talent, but when the light went out during Season 12 audition, no judge would have guessed what they were about to witness. Light Balance, a light show crew from Ukraine, presented one of the greatest and most memorable acts that the AGT stage has witnessed yet.
Early in their career, Light Balance had also tried their luck in Britain’s Got Talent in 2014 where they managed to get the 4th position. But after that, they decided to completely step up their game and auditioned for AGT on Bruno Mars’ Track “24K Magic” and Deorro’s “Five More Hours”. The costume of the crew blew the mind of audience as well as the judges because the synchronization of the light were out of the world.
“I love this act so much” Heidi Klum said. “I love the creativity, also the music that you chose I mean we’ve seen dances in the dark before but not this good.”
“I loved the whole thing from the light, the subtly in your dance movements it was just perfection” Mel B said. “Absolutely brilliant.”
“I thought the act was incredible, it was imaginative, it was different” Simon Cowell said. “I’ve never seen anything like that before.”
Just when the judges were about to vote for the group, the show’s host Tyra Banks came out and expressed her feeling of amusement and how shook she was after watching Light Balance’s breath-taking performance. Tyra pressed the golden buzzer for the team advancing them directly to the live shows.
However, during the quarterfinals, the crew had a major issue with their costumes, so they went on and their rehearsal video was aired on the television, which obviously blew the minds of viewers.The group then went on to competing in finals and bagged the third place.
Light Balance returned to the stage of AGT Champions and performed to tracks like “I was made for lovin” by kiss, “Everybody (Backstreet’s Back”) by The Backstreet Boys and “Runaway (U & I)” by Galantis. They didn’t make it to the next round; however, they managed to make a special room in everyone’s heart that witnessed their performance that day.
