Lightwire Theater

Another twelve acts took the stage Tuesday night in the hopes of continuing on America's Got Talent. While the night was filled with lackluster performances, one act clearly outshined the rest.

The Lightwire Theater's performance as a group of dancing birds provided a spectacular end to the night. Their captivating combination of dance, puppetry and lighting earned Lightwire a standing ovation from all three judges, who couldn't seem to contain their glee during critiques.

"That was spectacular in every sense of the word," Sharon Osbourne said. Howard Stern added: "No disappointments here. That's a big stage show. That's a million dollar act."

It'd be a shock if Lightwire were eliminated in tonight's results show, but with only four acts continuing on, competition is tough.
