Show Host Scott Hayes Commentary

Today's presentations were just too hot for my laptop - it over-heated and crashed near the end of our show. My thanks to judge and co-host Martin Hubel (@mhubel) for taking over after my abrupt departure. Sorry!

Also helping to "save the day", my thanks to @ember_crooks for being a substitute judge in Klaas Brant's absence. Ember is doing an AWESOME job of blogging about DB2's GOT TALENT 2014 at and I'm thankful for all of the details she is providing!
