The first-year show, similar to the established America’s Got Talent, enables any person or group to showcase their skills in front of judges, a live audience and all those watching at home on television.
Odjig, a two-time world hoop dancing champion, was one of 36 contestants who advanced to the semi-final round. But after her second national TV appearance on Apr. 22, Odjig was eliminated the following evening during the show’s results broadcast when the semi-final votes were announced. Anybody could vote for their favorite performer by phone, text, Facebook, Twitter or online.
