Marni Halasa, ex-lawyer turned figure skating coach and performance artist, was recently on the Today Show, being interviewed by Al Roker. She stood in the cold rain for a segment to showcase New York City local talent who may become the next winner of NBC's America's Got Talent. Auditions were held in NYC, and Marni performed her "Bellydancing on Blades" routine. As she explains,
All you figure skaters out there, let's send good thoughts to Marni and her Bellydancing on Blades act. There are several rounds of auditions for America's Got Talent that the contestants go through, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that she continues forward til the end!
