Prepare to be thrilled, Baltimore. The Michael Jackson The Immortal World Tour is coming to town. Mansour Abdessadok, 30, of Montpellier, France, is a part of the action, traveling the world as a mime, the main character in the Cirque du Soleil show, which stops at Baltimore Arena on March 18 and 19. "The show is Cirque du Soleil meets rock concert. It has the acrobatics that people know Cirque for, paired with the iconic music and choreography of Michael Jackson," said Abdessadok.

This clip was probably on all the highlight shows this morning, so my apologies if you have seen it already, but check out this Cirque du Soleil performer throwing out the first pitch before a game in San Diego on Monday. Dude does some sort of 720-degree twist then fires a strike to the catcher. Take note, Orioles relievers.

And now here we are on our regular night with Los Angeles auditions. It always makes me so happy to see Cat interacting with the dancers waiting in line -- she is sunshine in high heels. Judges tonight: Mary Murphy, Nigel Lythgoe, and professional goof Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Love him, too. Mary Murphy warns them, "No lip syncing, no 'self-worship,' and no booty-shaking, unless you're really good at it. " Jesse gets on the mike and says he wants to see everything Mary just forbade.

Jonathan Phillip "Sugarfoot" Moffett can practically hear the King of Pop's voice in his head as he practices his drum licks for the Cirque du Soleil show based on the music of Michael Jackson. "Make it bigger than life," Moffett hears the Gloved One telling him, as he bears down on the beat in "Billie Jean" or "Heartbreak Hotel. " "My fans know my music. That's what they want to hear. Add some color, but don't stray too far. " In putting together "Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour," the creative team behind Cirque du Soleil drew upon the expertise of several musicians and dancers who worked closely with Jackson, including Moffett, Jackson's longtime drummer, and choreographer Travis Payne.

Rope-skipper extraordinaire Adrienn Banhegyi did not run away to join the circus. Cirque du Soleil came to her. The 27-year-old, Hungarian-born champion jump-roper was last seen in the Cirque du Soleil production of "Wintuk" in New York City. Locals can look for her as a headliner in the latest traveling edition, "Quidam," coming to Baltimore's 1st Mariner Arena Aug. 24 to 28. Banhegyi will be taking the part in the show of another champion rope-jumper, who just happens to be her sister.

For its new album, Plain White T's looked to the circus for inspiration. The French-Canadian circus, no less. Before he started writing "The Wonders of the Younger," lead singer Tom Higgenson had gone to see "O" by Cirque du Soleil, a show that revolves around a million-gallon pool. Acrobats pull all sorts of synchronized stunts under and above the water. Higgenson was awed. "It flooded me with memories of my youth — it reminded me of movies like "The Goonies" and "Back to the Future" and that feeling of 'wow,'" he said.

Yes, please Let Billy Crystal do his thing Sure, he may not be the hippiest host, but Crystal's an Oscar-host pro. He knows what he's doing and he's funny doing it. We're hoping for a classic Crystal opening monologue, hopefully one of those song medleys that humorously mentions the major nominees. Or a montage where he's inserted into films Crystal pierced and tattooed in a "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" shout-out? Totally would work. More Muppets We hear Kermit and Miss Piggy are presenters, but why stop there?
