Alabama State University's Honey Beez to be Seen Nationwide on "America's Got Talent" TV Show (345 hits)

One of America's top-rated television series "America's Got Talent" (AGT) and its creator, Simon Cowell, are all "abuzz" with the show's latest big news that Alabama State University's famed Honey Beez (plus-sized, student dance team) will have their earlier taped performance aired on the NBC Network's famed TV show on Tuesday (Aug. 8) at 7 p.m. (CST).

If you remember, the ASU Honey Beez first went to Hollywood last March to compete on and to tape an AGT performance segment. The photo above (attached below) was taken just prior to their AGT segment that will air on Tuesday, and it shows them in their new performance suits of black and gold, which are the school colors of ASU.

The news of the upcoming national television showing was delivered to the University community by ASU's director of the Mighty Marching Hornets Band (and Honey Beez creator), Dr. James Oliver, who is overwhelmed by the news of the "Beez" latest accomplishment.

"The entire Hornet Nation will be very pleased and happy when they see ASU's Honey Beez perform in the Burbank studio of America's best entertainment TV show, America's Got Talent," Oliver said.

"We are honored that ASU allowed us to participate on this show that has such a large worldwide following, and we hope that our performance will make everyone proud that we are all from Alabama State University," he added.

ABOUT THE HONEY BEEZ
The ASU Honey Beez were created in 2004 by Oliver, who said that the minimum requirements to be on the team is to be a full-time ASU student, have a 2.5 or better grade-point average, and weigh at least 250 pounds - there is no height requirement.

Traveling with them as they performed was both Dr. Oliver, and Ruth Anna M. Williams, the Honey Beez coordinator, who is a Mobile native.

"The Honey Beez are an awesome group of very talented and motivated ASU students, who are famous for stealing the Hornet's football game half-time shows," Oliver said. "However, what my Beez do off of the performance field to help motivate a positive self-image of high school and college-aged girls is just as incredible," he added.

Stayed tuned for the possibility of an AGT-Honey Beez watch-party on campus.
