During an audition, an 88-year-old exotic dancer surprised the judges and viewers of America’s Got Talent with an unexpected performance.
Penny claimed to be America’s oldest burlesque dancer and was regarded a national treasure.
The 88-year-old dancer astonished the judges with a performance that was second to none.
Penny Starr Senior is a native of Palm Bay, Florida. She appeared on the AGT stage wearing red, white, and blue feathers.
Penny revealed she was a widow with six husbands when Simon asked if she was single. The media magnate asked the candidate if she planned on marrying for the seventh time.
‘Yes, but it takes time to calibrate them,’ she said.
Penny began her performance with the song ‘You’re a Grand Old Flag.’ When the old lady chose to take turns undressing, the four judges were overjoyed. To commemorate the performance, host Terry Crews tossed red, white, and blue confetti across the stage.
Sofia Vergara complimented Penny and stated, «Penny, I want to be you when I grow up.» Heidi Klum, a former Victoria’s Secret model, applauded Penny.
Simon was taken with the outspoken older dancer and flirted with her. But then he posed the audacious question that would determine Penny’s fate on AGT.
«Would you have been stripped of more garments if you had moved on?» the media magnate challenged the nominee.
» To which the active pensioner said, «Of course I will.»
«I want to see more!» exclaimed Judge Howie Mandel. Penny received four yeses.
