After the ShowEdit
- Team iLuminate followed the same pattern as Fighting Gravity. Their acts both involved them being in the dark dancing, they went straight through Las Vegas without competing and both reached 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.
- All Three Judges gave them standing ovations in each of their peformmances, not only did they had more standing ovations from live peformancess and like Quintavious Johnson, they were the first to do that.
