The Shape was a dance group act from Season 15 of America's Got Talent.  They were eliminated in the Quarterfinals.

Background

What do you call a brotherhood of teenage street dancers without a name? Now known as The Shape, none of the dancers in this all-male dance crew had any previous dance training prior to joining their high school performing arts program five years ago. But after winning eight U.S. national championship titles together as members of their high school hip-hop dance team, these teenagers from Monterey Park, California, are ready to bring their creativity to a whole new level. This teen hip-hop program experiences a frequent revolving door of new dancers each year, which forces the group to constantly shapeshift to maintain their winning streak. Together, they dance as brothers. As one united force, they are The Shape.

Audition

The Shape's audition was not televised. Although it is known that their audition was an online audition. At least 3 judges voted "yes", sending The Shape through to the judge cuts.

Judge Cuts

The Shape automatically advanced to the Quarterfinals, though their verdict was not televised.

Quarterfinals

The Shape's Quarterfinals performance in Episode 1511 consisted of performing a dance routine to Pitbull's "Fireball" and Neon Trees' "Everybody Talks". The group did not receive enough votes to advance to the Semifinals in Episode 1512, eliminating them from the competition along with Kelvin Dukes instead of Daneliya Tuleshova.

Trivia

  • The Shape is the first act to make their first televised appearance in the live shows since Cornell Bhangra in Season 9 through an event with the Today Show.
  • Unlike in Seasons 5, 6 and 7 where 12 YouTube acts performed for a spot in the semifinals, The Shape had to advance through the audition and Judge Cuts.
  • Since the format change in Season 10, The Shape is the third live show act whose audition was not televised, the first two being Blake Vogt from Season 11 and Alex Dowis from Season 14.
