The Avengers were assembled once more, this time to recreate their epic final confrontation on America’s Got Talent.
This time the Avengers were instead portrayed be Light Balance Kids. Hailing from Ukraine, this dance troupe consists of tweens who use an intricate blend of modern dance and light shows to create a memorable performance.
The group’s semi-final light show involved Doctor Strange, Thor, Hulk, Captain Marvel, Captain America and a bevy of Iron Men in an Avengers: Endgame-inspired dance routine. Amid a cavalcade of action that included punching trucks and appearing in mystic orange portals, the group were seen dancing to The Scorpion’s “Rock You Like A Hurricane” and Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer.”
As is standard of their routine, the crew eschewed intricate costuming and instead wear suits with light piping running throughout. The lights are illuminated in sequence as they perform in the dark. The result is a memorable action sequence that has a big budget appeal.
Light Balance Kids put on a memorable show, but it almost wasn’t enough. When the votes came in, they didn’t make the initial cut of competitors going to the finals. They were rescued by a Dunkin’ Save, a live viewer vote conducted during the show that got them into the finals.
The Dunkin’ Save has caused a bit of controversy among fans of AGT, who have taken to Twitter to express disappointment over Light Balance Kids making the cut over other competitors. It’s not the first time the group has managed to progress in such a manner, either. During the earlier Judge Cuts portion of the competition, guest judge Ellie Klemper awarded them a Golden Buzzer which sent them directly to the quarterfinals.
Dance has quickly become a popular medium for sharing a love for the massive Marvel Cinematic Universe. Recently, the PAC Dance Team of Walden Grove High School performed an Avengers-inspired homecoming dance that featured key moments from Endgame and Infinity War.
