Its performance in Episode 711 consisted of again using light-up suits to portray dinosaurs and moving trees glowing in the dark.

Lightwire Theater's Quarterfinals performance in Episode 718 consisted of performing a story of a duckling encountering many larger birds. Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne, and Howard Stern gave the group standing ovations. It received enough votes to be sent to the Semifinals in Episode 719 instead of All Beef Patty and Inspire the Fire.
Lightwire Theater's Semifinals performance in Episode 728 consisted of performing with its luminescent puppets a story of dinosaurs fighting each other with weapons resembling lightsabers. The group received enough votes to be revealed as one of the Top 4 of the second Semifinal round instead of All That! and Shanice & Maurice Hayes. Lightwire Theater was later revealed to have finished in either third or fourth place in America's Vote. In the Judges' Choice, although Sharon Osbourne voted for it, Howard Stern and Howie Mandel did not, eliminating Lightwire Theater from the competition in Episode 729 instead of David Garibaldi and His CMYK's.
