Trivia

  • Team iLuminate followed the same pattern as Fighting Gravity and Light Balance. Their acts all involved them being in the dark dancing, they all skipped the second round and went straight into the Quarterfinals, and all got third place.
  • The music in the video recapping Team iLuminate's and Fighting Gravity's progress on the show is the same, Forever, by Chris Brown.
