‘America’s Got Talent’ cuts sassy Prancing Elites

Add this share

The gay Prancing Elite took their sassy stepping from Alabama and YouTube to “America's Got Talent” on Tuesday, but the dance team's national TV debut didn't go well.

Howie Mandel bailed on the gold-sequined squad first, with fellow judge Howard Stern quickly following up. He even offered this rebuke: “You guys weren't exactly lighting the room on fire.”

Judges Heidi Klum and Mel B disagreed, but they weren't enough to save the Prancing Elite during the two-hour Season 9 premiere littered with dance groups.

Their reality show debut was brief (watch above), but it still went better for the YouTube sensations than that Christmas Parade in Semmes, Ala. Those townies, like Stern, don't appreciate talent when it prances by.
