Light balance: Ukrainian dance group shines on America’s Got Talent

27 June 2017

Last week mesmerising Ukrainian dance crew Light Balance wowed the audience and judges in their audition for hit US show America’s Got Talent.

The group’s psychedelic, immersive routine saw the dancers clad in LED-covered outfits, creating a striking visual display on the blacked-out stage.

After winning high praise from the judges, the show’s host, Tyra Banks, ran out from backstage to give the group her Golden Buzzer: an automatic pass to the live finals.

Light Balance may inspire a sense of déjà vu in UK viewers, given that the group astounded audiences on the 2014 edition of Britain’s Got Talent. Judge and America’s Got Talent creator Simon Cowell did not seem any less impressed the second time around.
