Course they'll have to now up their game again, but one can't say they didn't earn it. I feel for lightwire, but I think they'll do well on their own. I can see them join up with last year's light group and both do a show combined. Some of the ballet skills of lightwire could benefit the other group and the pattern and light programs could be added to some of the lightwire acts.
I most definitely think American got it right on the four that were up for those spots though.
