The Best Dance Acts on ‘America’s Got Talent’
1. Kenichi Ebina
This Japanese dancer competed on Season 8 of AGT. He auditioned with a routine inspired by The Matrix, in which he moved his body like a machine and even seemed to make his own head fall off. The audience went wild for Kenichi’s seemingly impossible moves, and he ended up winning the entire competition. He later returned to compete in AGT: The Champions.
This acrobatic dance group from India stunned the judges in Season 14 with their gravity-defying moves. They earned a Golden Buzzer from guest judge Dwyane Wade in the Judge Cuts, and they ended up making it to the Finals, although they didn’t win. V.Unbeatable later returned for the second season of AGT: The Champions, where they were named the winners.
3. Light Balance
In Season 12, this light-up dance crew from Ukraine showed America a new kind of performance. The dancers wore light-up costumes and created colorful stories on stage with each performance. They finished the competition in third place and later returned for AGT: The Champions. A younger version of the group, called Light Balance Kids, made it to the Finals of Season 14.
This acrobatic dance group, originally founded in Brazil, competed in Season 13 of AGT, earning the Golden Buzzer from host Tyra Banks. They showed off some dramatic and awe-inspiring routines throughout the competition, featuring themed costumes and sets. The group ended up finishing the season in second place.
This dance group, led by Jacques Heim, competed on Season 12 of the show. Their graceful audition routine had the judges and audience gasping, as the dancers performed on a large rocking structure.
