MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

ASU's Honey Beez competed in a showing of NBC's hit show "America's Got Talent" Tuesday night but did not make the Live Show cut. 

The university's plus-sized dance team performed a routine to Fifth Harmony's song "Worth It."

The Honey Beez, created in 2004, are a plus-sized, student dance team that requires their members to be at least 250 pounds.

This is not the first trip to AGT for the beez. They first went to Hollywood last March to tape an AGT performance segment.

"We are honored that  ASU allowed us to participate on this show that has such a large worldwide following, and we hope that our performance will make everyone proud that we are all from Alabama State University," said Dr. James Oliver, Mighty Marching Hornets Band director and creator of the Honey Beez.

"The Honey Beez are an awesome group of very talented and motivated ASU students, who are famous for stealing the Hornet's football game half-time shows," Oliver added. "However, what my Beez do off of the performance field to help motivate a positive self-image of high school and college-aged girls is just as incredible."
