NBC’s America’s Got Talent advances The Carolina Opry’s hip-hop cloggers “All That” to the Wild Card round!
The hip-hop clog dancing ensemble “All That” is moving on to the live Wild Card round on NBC’s America’s Got Talent after being named “Judges Favorite” during the Las Vegas portion of the hit show. “All That” first appeared on the show in its first season, making it all the way to the finals and finishing as first finalists. The group reappeared this season and were immediate judge favorites, moving unanimously to Vegas week and then on to the top 48 in New York. Wow!
The talented dance group has been wowing audiences at The Calvin Gilmore Theater for over seven years and performs nightly in The Carolina Opry and Good Vibrations shows. Last month they brought the nation to its feet with their audition performance in Tampa, FL before judges Howie Mandel, Sharon Osbourne, and Howard Stern. Following their performance the live audience gave a standing ovation prompting Mandel to comment, “When you can bring them to their feet with just your feet, I think you’ve done something.” Osbourne raved, “I loved it, it was great!” Stern was even impressed stating, “You are real showmen, your look is unique, I think you are on to something, it was very entertaining.”
Entertainer Calvin Gilmore, who owns, produces and directs The Carolina Opry (in which he appears several times each week) said “These guys really are stars and they have the talent to win the competition – I hope all of Myrtle Beach will get behind them. They are a great group of guys, and I have really enjoyed working with them. Our audiences just love them.”
So Myrtle Beach you will have to wait until after the Olympics to see if our home town boys can win the whole thing. We think they can!
