Light Wire Theater Predictions and Audition Results for America's Got Talent 7
Light Wire Theater is a blacklight act that is competing on the 7th season of America's Got Talent. In terms of AGT history, they are following in the footsteps of Season 5's Fighting Gravity and Season 6's Team iLuminate. Both of those acts were strong favorites in many people's eyes but finished in 3rd place.
Light Wire Theater auditioned in St. Louis, Missouri, and their audition was aired on the May 14, 2012 episode. They did a dinosaur theme for their first audition. They easily got through to the Las Vegas round with approval from all three judges.
Well, this art form is in the process of evolving. Like Howie said, they seem to be taking a step beyond what the other America's Got Talent blacklight acts were able to achieve. However, it should be noted that Team iLuminate members actually had a fairly high degree of dancing talent.
I had always said that Fighting Gravity would probably not win, and I picked Michael Grimm to win that season. Blacklight acts are similar to dancing, and as dancing goes, they just aren't displaying that much talent. I gave Team iLuminate a better chance of winning because they added a higher level of dancing along with the lighting technology and choreography.
With Light Wire Theater, we have something in between. While the concepts appear more advanced than Fighting Gravity, you don't see any of the actual dancing displayed by Team iLuminate.
In the end, my prediction is Light Wire Theater will not win the 7th season of America's Got Talent. The art form has never impressed enough people to win AGT. And I don't see enough advances in the concepts to predict a change in the voting results. And even if the concepts end up better, those concepts are no better than decent dance choreography, which is something that has also never won the show because it is not really a talent per se.
