Stepz - Audition and Predictions For America's Got Talent 7

Stepz is a talented dancer who auditioned in New York City for the seventh season of America's Got Talent. The vote to send him through to Vegas was split. Howard said NO, but Sharon and Howie said YES. With two YES votes, Stepz will now audition in Las Vegas for a spot in the Top 48.

Stepz is a solo dancer, and only one of those has made the Top 10 in recent years (Hairo Torres). This puts him behind the power curve. Then again, everyone is behind the power curve except singers.

I don't know if it's editing or plain stupidity, but the show seems to like Turf more than Stepz. They both do contortion moves, breakdancing, and various popping or robotic dance moves. It's plain as day that Stepz is better, but Turf got treated like the next Fred Astaire, while the judges argued over whether Stepz routine was enough to be a Las Vegas headliner. Comparing these two auditions just makes the show look more staged than it already does. There is no way the show has changed a bit since Howard Stern replaced Piers Morgan. It was simply a change of personnel, with the only other difference being that Howard has a bit more of a charismatic personality.

It's easy to predict that Stepz will not win America's Got Talent 7, but it really makes little sense to intentionally favor weaker talent over stronger in a category that is not going to win, anyway. Stepz is better than Turf, but I predict Turf has a better shot of being selected for the Top 48.

Wow, I joined this site solely because of the enormous contradiction in Stern's judging regarding Turf and Steps. Clearly both guys are talented dancers but like you said, Steps was just better. He may not have the sob story past like Turf does but what are they judging? I found it really disappointing as I am a long time Stern fan and for months, on his SiriusXM show, he has been ranting and raving about how he was going to show judges (Idol, AGT, etc.) how its supposed to be done. All he showed me is that he is just as inconsistent as any other judge and it all seems to come down to how HE is personally feeling at that moment. Kudos to you for for nailing the contradiction.
