I would have no problem with a dog winning Australia’s Got Talent — and, no, that is not any sort of commentary on the amount or quality of talent in Australia — but a robot dog?
PerezHilton.com reports that Erik The Dog — a sassy and highly mobile four-legged hunk o’metal — might be about to win the show this season, which would mark the first time a singing and dancing robotic has won a quarter of a million dollars in a talent contest.
I’m sure at least some of that would go to his partner, Joel Salom, an Australian born circus performer, juggler and comedian.
During the semifinals, Erik joined a team of dancers and sang “I’m Too Sexy.”
PerezHilton.com says hosts Sophie Monk and Kelly Osbourne seem particularly enamored with the robot dog.
Here, in case you haven’t seen enough, is some more Erik, including some not at all exclusive behind the scenes video:

Why dogs dancing the conga?
Because it’s my birthday.
I got an e-card that featured this video.
It made me smile. Hope it does you, too.
The Humane Society of the United States says this dog — one of more than 200 the organization assisted in removing from a Tennessee puppy mill last week — is dancing for joy.
At the very least, she’s headed for a better life than that afforded at Gayla’s Poodle Palace, in Sparta, Tennessee, where dismal conditions led the White County Sheriff’s office to seize 225 dogs.
Nearly 100 of the dogs, mostly small, designer breed puppies, were shipped to Chicago in a trailer, with others being sent to shelters and rescues in Nashville and Bowling Green, Kentucky, WPTV reported.
“These animals are very relieved,” said Justin Scally, the manager of the Puppy Mill Task Force for the HSUS. “There’s a noticeable difference from the time that they were removed from the puppy mill and were placed in the emergency shelter, and each day they have gotten better.”
Volunteers were cleaning and evaluating the dogs this week before placing them up for adoption.

An 11-year-old dog named Chandi dazzled the judges with her dancing on an episode of “Britain’s got Talent” that aired Saturday.
And her owner wasn’t bad, either.
A piano and violin teacher named Tina and her rescue dog Chandi performed a dance — Chandi with a sore on her leg, no less — that led to a standing ovation from the audience and the judges.

What better way to celebrate the New Year than with a dancing dog?
