(Gordongram: some of the acts that you are about to read involve real danger in front of a live audience. They were designed, practiced, and supervised by professionals, taking the contestants' safety into full account. They are extremely dangerous and should NEVER be attempted anywhere, by anyone, at any time)

Who wants some talent from Texas? Well, me neither, but we're off to the Lone Star State for some talent straight from...

HOUSTON
Verizon Theater

Dan Mink / Melody Joy aka. the Rhinestone Ropers. They start with Dan throwing knives at Melody and shooting balloons around her. Next they put her on a spinning wheel as Dan throws knives around her. Finally, she shoots mini water balloons while she's spinning. Million Dollar Act? No. Good enough to go to Vegas? Yes, and they get 3 Yes's.

Mona Lisa (29) - They are singing twins that get a quick blurb and a quick yes.

Charles Peachoek (35) - It's juggling in the dark. The judges like it. Who am I to argue.

Perfect Angels (22-36) - They are young, fun, and full of...acrobatic moves, as well as cleavage.

Daniel Joseph Baker (19) - He wants to entertain, sing and play the piano. He compares himself to Lady Gaga and Christina Aguilera. If a guy starts comparing himself to female singers, that's usually trouble. Plus it's 15 minutes in and we haven't had a XXX yet on the show. He sings 'Bad Romance', and he actually sounds good. He could continue on this competition, but he has to get different material, if just to make Nick Cannon stop dancing. Piers nails it that he's going to polarize audiences - but he liked it. He gets 3 Yes's and it's off to Vegas for him.

Jay Maynard (The Tron Guy) - He considers himself an internet celebrity. 23 minutes in and we don't have a 'XXX', but I'm sensing that will change very soon - especially as his 'act' is talking about his life. Piers and Sharon give him the Double X, while Howie tortures the audience a little, then puts us all out of his misery. We get our first 'See ya' of the evening.

Sando Trio Russian Bar - She promises that we have never seen this before. Actually, if you watches Season 4, you HAVE seen this before, and I remember seeing this when they auditioned in NYC. Or maybe not them, but someone else that did the same thing, which is doing flips on a long bar - thogh this time, they added music (vs. when I was there 2 years ago and they didn't have music). When I was in NYC, they got 3 straight yes's. They do get 3 yes's there, so history does repeat itself.

Status B.L.A.K. - We get our first awful R&B group, complete with bungled somersault.

Johnny DiDomenico (38) - He's a celebrity impersonator who impersonator - badly. Howie: 'This is the first time I didn't like me...No Deal.'

Asian James Brown - I don't really to waste your time or mine describing this.

Danny Shay - She's 22 years old and he looks like Justin Bieber, but SHE'S not. (Emphasizing the SHE). Creepy. She's got a guitar and sings a parody of 'Baby'. It's cute and should get her to Vegas. It will.

ID Dance Company - It's Latino Las Vegas Men - and Women - who get a quick cameo

Tanner Edwards (6) - He's a 6 year old dancer who does baby breaking as well as some grown up moves. It's impressive for a 6 year old. I don't know if he breaks the Top 40, but he'll make it to the Vegas rounds. And Nick Cannon dances with him...wait a sec. What did I say about Nick Cannon dancing? Ugh.

Darren Taylor - his talent is to jump from the top of the stage (26 feet up) onto a standard kids wading pool. Umm...wha? He attempts it from 25 feet - and hits it perfectly. For that (and the promise that he'll go for 36 feet and attempt a new world's record), he gets 3 Yes's. I suspect we'll see him on the Top 40.

That's hour 1 from Houston. We'll now start hour 2 from...

MINNEAPOLIS
Orpheum Theater

....sort of. Its time for a blizzard. But the Minneapolitans are there (at least I think so - that was clearly the Asian Jackie Chan up there). We have Howie and Sharon and...no Piers, who's stuck in the snow. However, it gets harder, because one no from either Howie or Sharon, and the journey ends here.

Sara Hoft and Echo - Echo is a parrot who talks and sings. That's VERY impressive - probably the best pet act I've seen ever on the history of the show. She's the first of the 2 Yes's and they sing into Las Vegas.

Mrs. Smith (36) - She's in drag and plays a mean guitar dressed as a housewife.

St. Luke's Bottle Band - Another impressive music act. Sharon, who says yes, wants to see Piers. Nick Cannon brings out a cardboard cutout of Piers to get the ambience going.

The Halls of Magic - It's a magic act which features a folded out lady and some of the cheesiest outfits ever. Still, they get to Vegas.

Any sign of Piers? Not yet...

Lisa Agnes (26) - She wants to do Jazz, Blues and Rock. Her fiancÚ died 2 years ago and it's time to sing again. Her song selection is 'Ave Maria'. Or in the words of Jason Block, who's watching this with me, 'Let's see. Sad story. Check. Video Package, Check. Talent to back it up...way check. Top 5 Lock? If she continues to bring it...yes.'

You're getting almost as cynical as I am, son.

I'm not in love with the song choice (as we've seen it done 1,000 times before), but she gets the easy invite to Vegas.

Viva La Muerte (28) - It's a burlesque midget stripper. She's going to get in, which could be the last free pass.

...because Piers is back.

Those Funny Little People. We have little dancing gnomes which are welcomed by a buzz from Piers. Piers says no, but gets overruled by Howie and Sharon. As the Gnomes invade Piers' dressing room, Piers states, "We're not putting through idiotic acts." It's a good thing he wasn't around for the burlesque midget.

Gasmask 90 - He's covered in mud, wearing shots and being doused in fire extinguishers. Now why wouldn't the judges like it? XXX

Miss Cherries Jubilee - It's a dancing and piercing combo act. It's as painful to watch as it is to probably feel.

Sid Yiddush - He sings Tubism. I don't have a translator for his lyrics.

Walt Winston - He's a folk musician with 70 #1 singles. The singles are on am unauthorized site. He says he's done 28 albums and this can only end badly. He sings 'Truck Drivers Aren't Supposed to Cry'. I'm crying in pain. The judges buzz him out. Howie tries to get a verse in but him and Nick's singing is even worse than his dancing. Recappers aren't supposed to cry, which is good, because I'm not crying. I'm puking.

The Silhouettes - 38 kids from Denver. To stay on the team, they have to maintain a 3.0. They dance behind a screen to make images and spell words. That is very cool and I'll be shocked it they don't make the Top 40. They get 3 Yes's and if they keep this up, they could be a dark horse to win the whole thing.

We are approaching the end of the show, we approach Tim Ford, who creates Chain Reaction items. He's called the 'Kinetic King'. and he did a domino chain reaction with tongue depressors. He wears a towel to protect himself from 'Safe Sticks' and he wants to get a mansion in Kauai with Playboy bunnies and watch Buster Keaton movies. I'm not making it up. We'll see him in Vegas.

We'll see more people who have Vegas potential next week.
