The talented shadow dance group of The Silhouettes earn the coveted golden buzzer on America’s Got Talent: Champions.
We first met the Silhouettes on the sixth season of America’s Got Talent. The inspiring ensemble went on to place 2nd and quickly became a fan favorite.
On their website, the group is describes themselves saying, “THE SILHOUETTES® spread light and love with every performance by inspiring audience members around the world with messages of believe in yourself, imagine the possibilities, create the perfect world, pride in your country and unite with love.”
Today, they are back as competitors on America’s Got Talent: The Champions. This special format of competition features over 40 acts from all across the globe.
The list of contenders includes past winners, finalists and fan-favorites from the entire Got Talent franchise. And The Silhouettes are pulling out all the stops to impress the judges and audience.
Their moving performance told the story of a girl and her dog through the art of shadow dance. As the years progressed, we are taken on a journey of heartache, joy and unconditional love.
By the end, judge Heidi Klum was even wiping away a tear. Simon Cowell said that this act was “absolutely why we have made this show.” But it was judge Alesha Dixon’s comments that send the group over the moon. “That was just so moving, so beautiful. I thought about my childhood dog. I’m thinking about my dogs now who I am missing. I was just completely bowled over, inspired and I want to see more.”
That’s when she leaned over and pressed her golden buzzer sending the group straight through to the next round. What an incredibly inspiring moment!
