Dorae Saunders, our Fake Tina Turner, is next. He explains that he started doing Tina because he had great legs. Fascinating! He promises to take Tina to the next level. He is lowered from the ceiling in a disco ball. He is wearing white spandex and sequins. He is surrounded by back up singers/dancers. He is performing "Disco Inferno." His breasts look fabulous. Piers buzzes pretty quickly. At the end of the act, Piers explains his buzz. He thinks Dorae looks great and it looks like fun and is entertaining, but he doesn't think it's enough. The only tribute act that has made it to the Top 20 is Fake Frank Sinatra who sings like Frank Sinatra. He doesn't think it is fair to put a lip-syncer through to the next round. Dorae disagrees. She thinks she dances and she acts and that is enough. Sharon agrees. She doesn't think singing is necessary if the act is entertaining. The Hoff isn't sure if Dorae could keep an audience's interest for an entire Vegas act (a question they did not ask Kaitlyn), but he is entertaining and fun and that could be enough.
Next up is America's wild-card pick, Donald Braswell. I will say right now that I did not vote for him. Electing to sing Josh Groban is unforgivable. Truly. He is also far too earnest and yearning for me. He's like a Thomas Kinkade painting that sings. In his video introduction, Donald interviews that, except for the birth of his children, hearing Jerry call his name as the wild card winner was the best moment of his life. He's here because America voted for him, and he's not going to let [us] down. The curtains open to Donald perched on stairs with the dulcet tones of "Dream the Impossible Dream" tripping off his tongue. He descends the stairs. He raises his arms. He looks off in the distance. He makes a fist of captured dreams. He opens his fist to the breeze. He dreams big. No one buzzes. Sigh. Piers says that America took a big punt on him. I don't know what that means, and I've used up enough of the old British friend's time with the whole "cut the cheese" thing. Piers thinks that Donald's performance proved America right. Sharon enlightens us that Robert Goulet made that song famous, and she is not sure if there is room for someone like Robert Goulet today. Amen to that. No offense to the kin of Robert Goulet. Donald is very musical-theatre, and she's not sure if he's relevant. But she does want him to lighten up. Who doesn't feel like lightening up after being told they're irrelevant? The Hoff tells Donald that they all felt terrible voting him off. Donald points out that he felt worse. The Hoff is glad he is back because he nailed the song. Irrelevant Donald thanks everyone and tries not to cry.
