Texas State Strutters advances to Las Vegas callbacks in NBC's "America's Got Talent"

The Texas State Strutters dance team has advanced to Las Vegas Callbacks in the third season of NBC’s summer television series “America’s Got Talent” Tuesday night, July 22. The acts that make it through the Vegas Callbacks will move on to the live semi-final performance episodes where the American viewing audience will vote for their favorites each week. The series culminates with a live finale where one act will walk away with a million-dollar prize.

Jerry Springer hosts the show that is presided over by celebrity judges David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne. Each summer “America’s Got Talent” is NBC’s weekly reality show that features singers, dancers, comedians, contortionists, impressionists, jugglers, magicians and ventriloquists all performing for audience and judges votes to move on to the next round. The series culminates with a live finale where one act walks away with a million-dollar prize.

The Strutters were the nation’s first dance team organized by any major university campus in 1960 and have performed at professional football and basketball games, car races, rodeos, two U.S. Presidential inaugurations and the Macy’s Thanksgiving parade.
