Tyra Banks gave the Golden Buzzer advantage to Light Balance Dance Group on “America’s Got Talent” on Tuesday. Check out the video below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, each judge can use the Golden Buzzer once during the auditions. Pushing the button sends an act straight to the live quarterfinals. Those chosen get to skip over the Judge Cuts round, where the crop of contestants is significantly narrowed down. On the season 12 premiere earlier this month, Mel B pushed the button for Darci Lynne Farmer, a young ventriloquist. Simon Cowell hit the Golden Buzzer for deaf singer Mandy Harvey. And just last week, formerly blind teen singer Christian Guardino was Howie Mandel’s pick.

That left Heidi Klum as the only judge left to award the major perk, but it was new host Banks who seized the opportunity on the season’s fourth episode. First, the Ukranian dance group, who performed a routine in glow-in-the-dark outfits to songs like “24K Magic,” received a standing ovation from all the judges. Klum gushed, “I love this act so much. I love the creativity, also the music. We’ve seen dances in the dark before but not this good.”

“I actually love it,” said Howie Mandel. “What people tend to miss is the simulation of the lights. That’s a choreography, too. We love what you did and you should be very proud of yourself and very proud of your troupe.” Mel B told the dancers, “I loved the whole thing, from the lights to the subtlety. Your dance movements were just perfection. Absolutely brilliant.”

Added Simon Cowell, “I thought the act was incredible. It was imaginative. It was different. I’ve never seen anything like that before. It was incredible. Congratulations.” And just as they were about to vote, Banks walked out on stage. “I’m amazed by you guys. You guys, was that not incredible? Like crazy good. Blew my mind. I feel you guys so, so much,” she told them as the crowd cheered.

Urged to hit the Golden Buzzer, she walked off the stage and to the judges’ table to do just that. Afterward, the group’s leader marveled, “It’s like dreams come true. Thank you so much, Tyra.” Mel later said, “Ah, The day is full of surprises,” and Cowell could be heard saying, “That was mind-blowing.” Watch the video below!
