Silhouettes was a shadow play dance group act from Season 6 of America's Got Talent. It finished in second place in the competition.

BackgroundEdit

The Silhouettes, created, directed and owned by Lynne Waggoner-Patton was first formed in March, 2009. Also the owner of Rocky Mountain School of Dance & Performing Arts, Inc. Lynne was asked to create a show using photographs, shadows and dance that would make the audience remember Colorado. Thus, The Silhouettes were formed. A Denver-based entertainment company saw the news coverage from the March 2009 event and asked to book the group for corporate clients.

Although shadow work is centuries old, Lynne Waggoner-Patton offers a new standard by creating photo overlay where the dancers create a shape and the photograph of the shape appears on the screen. The Silhouettes have raised over $50,000 for homeless children in the United States through their performances and strive to continue to achieve their coal of helping children around the world. Rocky Mountain School of Dance & Performing Arts, Inc. in Arvada, Co is the official home of The Silhouettes. In October 2010, The Silhouettes were asked to attend an audition for America’s Got Talent Season 6. 1

AuditionEdit

Silhouettes's audition in Episode 604 consisted of creating silhouettes of things such as a tree with a swing and the word "Imagine" through shadow play. Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel all voted "Yes," sending the group to the Vegas Round.

During the performance, a stage door supposedly jammed backstage, causing the group to begin late. Viewers who recorded the show by DVR would thus have not seen the end of their performance nor the phone number to dial, and potentially been unable to vote for them.
