I’m Christopher. I’m 54 years old.

I’ve always wanted to be part of a music group. I thought that was the best thing ever — to perform with other people.

But I never found anyone to be in a group with.

There’s a lot of music groups that look like they are having fun. Together.

That always kind of made me jealous.

I’ve been working on my act for 30 years. This definitely is a million dollar act. I’m ready for the world to see.

Even though I’m going to be on stage alone tonight, I want people to feel like there’s whole group performing for them.

Heidi Klum: Hi.
Christopher: How are you doing?
Heidi Klum: Nice outfit.
Christopher: Thank you. It’s just something I threw together this morning.
Heidi Klum: Very nice. What is your name?
Christopher: Christopher.
Heidi Klum: Hi Christopher. Where are you from?
Christopher: Las Vegas.
Heidi Klum: Las Vegas. And how old are you, Christopher?
Christopher: I’m fifty four.
Mel B: No way!
Heidi Klum: I’m not even going to ask what you’re going to do. Let’s just watch.
Christopher: Thank you.
Mel B: What’s happening?
Heidi Klum: What’s going on Nick?
Simon: Be patient.
Heidi Klum: Oh my god!

Heidi Klum: Christopher. It is amazing. Five guys on the stage, and you were so in SYNC!
Christopher: I know!
Heidi Klum: Howie, what do you think?
Howie: I love it. It was fantastic. And if you come back . . .
Christopher: I am definitely come back with something that will top this.
Howie: Whoa. Wow!
Mel B: I was just kind of a bit gob smacked I didn’t know where to look and who to look at. But you’re one of those acts I would literally want to see again and again, and again and like the same thing. I found it fascinating.
Heidi Klum: Simon, what did you think?
Simon: I thought that was fantastic Christopher. I was imagining in my head when I go home tonight, and my girlfriend says, what was your day like at work, and I’m trying to explain the whole day, which is going to be difficult.

But that’s what I love about this show: you just never know what’s going to happen. It was really good fun. The audience loved it. It was a great act.
Christopher: Thank you.
Heidi Klum: Alright, let’s vote guys. Howie, what do you say?
Howie: Yes!
Mel B: Yes.
Simon: Yes.
Heidi Klum: You’ve got four yeses.

I hope he’s going to do Spice Girls next.
