Wrapping up the show this evening is Fake Elvis. Joseph Hall rocked the judges in the first audition then bored them in the second. Piers wants him to face up to filling the biggest shoes in show business. Joseph tells us that he's just a shy kid from Nebraska. He doesn't look very shy as the curtain goes up on his act. He's doing a full-on "Jailhouse Rock," with the complete jail set and prisoners and hot girlie wardens who pull off his sleeves. He does a rousing rendition of the song and swivels his hips admirably. Piers points out that he polarizes the audience: the men don't get it and the women love him. Piers thought the singing was a bit wobbly or warbling -- I'm not sure what he said, but it wasn't very encouraging. He thinks Joseph has lost something since his first audition. Sharon thinks he lost a little bit of the naughtiness that he once had. She likes her boys dirty. She growls a bit. Joseph looks uncomfortable. They don't have purple-haired cougars in Lincoln, Nebraska. He has no idea what to make of this. The Hoff thinks he did a great job. It's hard to dance and sing simultaneously, but he'll get it. He needs to return to his roots so he can wow the judges again. Maybe he just needs his leather pantsuit back. Just wriggling into that takes talent.
To recap, tonight we saw the Texas State Strutters, Michael Strelo-Smith, Bruce Block, Shequida, Taubl Family, Jonathan Burkin, Sarah Lenore, SickStep, Matthew Piazzi and Joseph Hall. Tune in Wednesday to see if your favorite made it to the Top 20. See you tomorrow!
