(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. This is an exhibition, not a competition - YET - so please, no wagering.)

We've had a ball watching these has beens, would bes, once weres, and never weres fight it out against the judges, but all good things must come to an end. It's the last round of auditions before we hit Vegas. Welcome to the Best of What's Left Show.

First up, Mestizo Ballet Folklorico (3-11; dancers), who are dancing with machetes. And they're kids. The little one has butter knives, so it's all good. They needed to be together. It was not together at all. It was cute, but not Vegas. The judges disagree with me, so they're going to Vegas. Joining them... the Aquanauts (synchronized swimmers), Kevin Downey, Jr. (comedian), and Tavi & Antonio (aerial love duet).

Timber Brown's (28; entertainer) father was an alcoholic and his mom was a drug addict. His escape.. climbing. In fact, he did some climbing for Mel B in a show in Vegas, so she has to recuse herself. So all he needs is two yeses. He begins with a pole act, followed by... a hand balance... and finishing up with a knee-catch near the floor. The hashtag means he's through. Even though he thinks that it was a bit disappointing. He didn't execute what he had hoped to do, but ultimately, the judges loved it, taking it another level. Three yeses!

Love is in the air (Howie himself is celebrating 33 years with his wife). Next up is Skilyr Hicks (14; student), who started playing the guitar after her father passed on. Her father proved the impetus for her songwriting. This is that song, "It's a Brand New Day". The Fifth Judge wants Vegas. Heidi says she won all of their hearts. Howie thinks about his two little girls. Four yeses!

Dr. Bob Baker (61; Manhasset, NY) is a gastroenterologist, but what he really wants to do is make people laugh. His first joke.. it's Howard's gastroenterologist! That's the joke. But his talent? Ventriloquism. In fact, here's the world's only talking colon. (C-Note: fan service moment: playing in the background: the theme to St. Elsewhere.... somewhere Howie knows well). His jokes are crap. But that's a legitimate excuse. Mel didn't get it. Howie didn't get it either. Three nos, and it's back to Howard's poop shoot for you.

BAD ACT MONTAGE! Now featuring the New Orleans Pelicans. And Nick making it with a woman on stage that isn't his wife.

Milton Patton (21; Forrest City, AR; electrician) sings country music. He's trying to work his way out of an area that's prevalent with drugs and gangs. He says that he's ready to give up some real country moments. Here's one right now with "Whiskey Lullaby" by Brad Paisley. He's got a nice baritone on him, and he sings from his heart. But will America accept THAT voice coming from THAT body? I hope so, because it's a good time. And we're going to hear more of him in Vegas.

Surely we have time for one more act... Jetta (nee Linda Ostrowski) (63; Sacramento; retired government worker), who's singing a song for Howard Stern. The song? "Hot Stuff" by Donna Summer.... eventually.

... this gets bad quickly. Surprisingly the dance with Howard continues unabated. And of course he wants to send her through. Howie says no. Mel and Heidi follow suit. What can you do, Howard.

... and that's it. We're done with auditions! Next stop... VEGAS!
