Thanks to a handy heads up from Queerty reader Areta Marie, we’ve just been schooled about our old friend Steven Retchless‘ amazing work on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, where the champion pole dancer has landed in the semifinals. Since the 24-year-old’s first outing on the show, judge Sharon Osbourne hasn’t been able to contain her enthusiasm, while Howie Mandel remains somewhat bemused and Piers Morgan (a.k.a. Britain’s Donald Trump) can’t hit his “No” buzzer fast enough. Yeah we get it, Piers: you’re not gay, just English. Overcompensate much?
America’s Got Talent airs Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 9pm EST on NBC.
