The Silhouettes, 'America's Got Talent'After Fighting Gravity made it to the Final Four last season on 'America's Got Talent' (Wed., 9PM ET on NBC) it was inevitable we'd see a lot of acts that mixed dance and performance art with darkness and illusion.

The Silhouettes are a dance troupe that cleverly perform behind a backlit white curtain, so their shadows are all you see from the audience. Thus, by positioning themselves differently across the stage they can appear to grow and shrink in size, and even combine to create intricate shadow puppets and combinations.

It came together really well, and certainly impressed the judges. Piers Morgan called their performance "one of the most brilliant things I've seen in a long time."

Not surprisingly, the group moved on to Las Vegas, joining what is perhaps an even more eclectic group of performers than in years past. Which groups stood out for you the most this week?
