PASADENA, CALIFORNIA: 'America's Got Talent: All Stars' 2023 premiered on Monday with the first 10 of 60 All-Star acts, and it didn't take long for our judges to award the season's first golden buzzer. Howie Mandel bestows the golden buzzer on Light Balance Kids, and fans can't help but agree with the judge's decision.

Light Balance, former competitors on 'America's Got Talent' and 'Britain's Got Talent,' has a children's wing. During the judge cuts, the Ukraine LED dance group received a golden buzzer from guest judge Ellie Kemper and advanced to the finale. The same children, now teens, are here along with a few parents to cover for those who couldn't travel. A child's father is a combatant in the Ukraine conflict. The impacts of the Russian invasion were felt by everyone. They have come to share their experience in the war on the new spin-off of 'AGT.'

They still do a lighthearted dance with a retro video game vibe. It's a lot of fun and lively. They could have chosen a depressing topic, but they chose to share a good message. The judges and the audience get on their feet. Heidi Klum describes it as a "fun party." Simon describes it as their greatest performance yet. 'Brilliant,' he says. Howie gets all excited after the performance. He says, "You travel the world to bring us light," and just like that he hits the first golden buzzer of the season. The children start sobbing, and so do the viewers at home. The act proceeds directly to the finale.

Fans couldn't be happier at this season's first golden buzzer winner, "Couldnโ€™t be more proud of Light Balance Kids. I am happy they were the ones who got the golden buzzer; they really deserved it." Calling it the best act to ever be performed on 'AGT' a fan wrote, "Completely blown away by the Ukrainian Light Balance Kids. They totally deserved the Golden Buzzer. Best act I've ever watched on AGT." Another person added, "Well, the @light_balance kids crushed it. High energy, inventive, visually stunning - & it cannot be stressed how much work goes into timing of these acts down to the split second. An incredible showing! #AGTAllStars! @AGT @NBC." Giving their mentors their due credit, another viewer tweeted, "Okay that makes sense. That was way too good for Light Balance Kids. Of course the older Light Balance was a part of it. Awesome performance."





With only on the first episode of the season, the little talents managed to make viewers tear up in front of their tvs, "Dang if Iโ€™m not ugly crying after that Light Balance Kids performance and Golden Buzzer." Adding to the praises, a person wrote, "Light balance kids like the phoenix rising from the ashes of war, came here and did the damn thing. Phenomenal performance." Agreeing with Howie's choice, a fan tweeted, "Light Balance Kids gets Howie's Golden Buzzer and go straight to the #AGTAllStars finale! (Honestly deserved)." Another fan added, "Congratulations Light Balance Kids on receiving @howiemandel's #GoldenBuzzer! Good choice, Howie!"
