I just saw a video of Cirque du Soleil. I've been watching America's Got Talent, which is where I saw it. I've seen other imported acts on America's Got Talent before, but holy crap, Cirque du Soleil reminds me what professionalism can be when it comes to performance. So precise. So smooth. Spotless.
[update: I ended up seeing this cirque du soleil show in New York a month or so later. It was fantastic.]
