A local dance team who went viral on YouTube last year made their television debut in last night's episode of America's Got Talent

The PAC Dance Team from Sahuarita's Walden Grove High School auditioned for the judges of the televised talent show in March. 

The team performed their popular Wizard of Oz-themed dance for famous judges such as Simon Cowell and Heidi Klum and received a standing ovation from the audience before they even started performing. Cowell said that's the first time that's ever happened.

Following their performance, Cowell said the team would advance to the next round. He said the dance team lit up the stage. 

The team went viral last year after they performed their Wizard of Oz-themed dance at their school's homecoming assembly and posted a video to YouTube. The video currently has 2.8 million views.

The full dance wasn't shown in the episode of America's Got Talent, but it's a definite must-watch. If you missed the show, click here to watch the full episode on NBC's website (The Sahuarita team goes on at about 1:09:00).
