The Virginia Tech-based black light illusion group Fighting Gravity has a chance to win $1,000,000 as well as a performance at a Las Vegas nightclub. The troupe is up against three other acts on the popular show America’s Got Talent: 10-year-old opera singer Jackie Evancho, guitarist Michael Grimm, and singer Prince Poppycock. The winner will be determined by the barrage of calls, texts, and online votes sure to follow Tuesday night’s final performance and will be announced Wednesday night.

Fighting Gravity is made up of 13 members of Tech’s Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity and was formed in 2009. The purpose of the original group was to compete in a university talent show to benefit an organization called “Service for Sight.” Bios and merchandise can be found at the group’s official site. The group can also be booked for performances. You can vote for Fighting Gravity here.
