LeAnn Rimes barely contained her emotions during a cathartic performance of her new song ‘Give’ on the ‘America’s Got Talent’ finale last night. She was joined by the Silhouettes dance team, a group of dancers young and old that were fighting for $1 million.
LeAnn faced away from the inspirational performers to maintain her composure. The team moved fluidly behind a translucent screen using spacing from bright lights to create shadows against the backdrop. By contorting their bodies and posing in unique positions they’re able to spell out words like “Believe,” “Create” and “Love.”
Halfway through Rimes’s equally inspiring song about sincere generosity, Silhouettes spelled “America” and waved American flags before posing as famous war memorials. When the music finished and the screen lifted, they were all dressed in red, with shimmering American flags across their chests. LeAnn wiped away tears.
‘Give’ will be included on her new album ‘Ladies and Gentleman,’ when it hits stores on Sept. 27.
