(C-Note: 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)

NBC says that the summer of 2011 is the summer of talent. ... So will we find any MORE in New York? Time to bring in the... Zorb?

Manhattan Center

Paul, Emily, Kara, and Mary Kate, AKA Triple Threat (Lake George, NY), sing, act, and dance in a theme park. Today, they'll bring their act to the big stage... the heart of Broadway? Not necessarily. Things go from bad to worse with Joel "The Cannon" Podelsky and his 90-second pumpkin pie, the Boston Typewriter Orchestra, and the Parrot Wizard... not being wizardly.

New York needed a bit of fire. They get Nick Pizzi (ventriloquist). But it's simply put with Cjaillon Andrade, aka Snap Boogie (Boston), a teenage dancer who dances for cash for his mom's bills. It looks like he may very well be on his way to a giant paycheck, as the judges put him through.

Michael Turco (29, magician) hopes to magically appear in Vegas.. With a box of ladies, how can he not? Timing was very slick... and he's through.

Hoping to follow in his footsteps is Riley Schillaci (27, Rochester, NY) who swallows swords. She says that she's one of less than 20 women in the world who can do so. And she doesn't stop at swords, going to drumsticks with hammers and swords being pulled out by hosts. And now that your gag reflex is on overload... the judges send her to the showers.

The weather takes a turn for the worse when Steven Retchless (New York City) takes a stage. He's a trained dancer... a trained POLE dancer. In silver lame pants. And body paint. You don't see males pole dancing... but there you are. And right now, I'm wishing that we had the sword swallower back. Sharon wants to call her Steve the Magnificent (and no, that's not a compliment). Piers didn't get it... but the rest of the judges put him through, 2-1.

Darkness falls.. and the acts are getting weirder, from the Human Knot... to Ten31 Productions... to Squonk Opera, but the most bizarre of the night.. ELEW, who has been playing the piano since 2. Today, he'll be doing so... with vambraces. To balance beauty with strength, of course. He wails with "Sweet Home Alabama"... and it's more strength than beauty. "That was a shock." Got that right, Sharon. He shocks his way to Vegas.

Final act of the night is a guy by the name of Landau Eugene Murphy Jr., a 36-year-old car washer who really LOVES Frank Sinatra. He gives us a little something something... and the judges and New York LOVE him for it. He gets a pass EASILY.

And that'll do it for the Audition Tour. Next time, we pare the field to the acts that you'll see on stage in the live shows. It's Viva Las Vegas next week.
