You go to the live shows! Season 13 of NBC Hit Talent Competition Series America's Got Talent started off with a bang, but only one of the acts literally thrilled the judges. An acrobatic dance group called Zurcaroh performed so amazingly that they got standing ovations from judges Simon Cowell, Heidi Klum, Mel B, and Howie Mandel – and they even got Tyra Banks' Golden Buzzer, which they get by eliminating several rounds of elimination and directly into the final.
Leader Peterson da Cruz Hora stated that he founded the group in 2009 and he accepts dancers, gymnasts and acrobats at all levels so that anyone who wants to join his group should never be excluded for lack of experience or talent. Just before Zurcaroh entered the stage, Peterson explained why it was so important for his group to audition for AGT. "Because this is the largest stage in the world where I can share our skills and talent," said Peterson.

Zurcaroh's rousing performance was full of daredevil acrobatics and precise synchrony. Afterwards Howie could only say "wow" and each of the judges praised the group for the amazing performance they had just done. Simon even said Zurcaroh's performance was "incredible" and "breathtaking" and just before the judges would vote yes or no, Tyra interrupted.
"Stop, I'll catch my breath," she said as she made her way to the judge's table. "This is so crazy that you know what I have to do," she went on when she hit the Golden buzzer, meaning Zurcaroh's progress in the competition.
Many of the dancers burst into tears on stage Peterson put everything behind the scenes when Tyra asked him how much that meant for him and his group. "What does that mean, I told my group that it could change our lives with this performance," Peterson said, "and I think it just happened."
