Strutters advance to Las Vegas on NBC show

From Texas State sports information

The Texas State Strutters dance team advanced to Las Vegas Callbacks in the third season of NBC’s summer television series “America’s Got Talent” Tuesday night.

The acts that make it through the Vegas Callbacks will move on to the live semi-final performance episodes, during which the show’s viewers will vote for their favorites each week. The series culminates with a live finale, where one act will walk away with a $1 million prize.

Jerry Springer is the show’s host. The show judges are David Hasselhoff, Piers Morgan and Sharon Osbourne. 

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