Tune in to America's Got Talent tonight and watch as Cassie Truskowski, the fire-eating, burlesque chanteuse, fetish entertainer, suspension artist and aerialist, competes before celebrity judges. Of the experience, Truskowski said:
"It was surreal -- it's a whole new experience having cameras on you at all times. Being in front of celebrity judges was really exciting. It was intense, you could feel the energy. These people wanted it for me as badly as I did. Plus, being around that many talented people was amazing."
It's not the first time burlesque shimmed onto the AGT stage. Michelle L'Amour put a saucy spin on Knight Rider and the burlesque troupe the Glamazons were finalists.
