Guam - Governor Eddie Calvo reacted to radio personality Howard Stern's reference to Guam on this week's episode of America's Got Talent. After one of the groups performed, Stern commented that he liked the performance but felt that while in America they get bored easily and if it was in Guam, they would have won the show already saying, "On Guam, they don't have many exciting acts, but here in America, they want different, they want new, they want unique."

Calvo said, "Whether it's in sports, in dancing or its other types of arts, with that I take it with a grain of salt. It's like you almost feel sorry for a person that ignorant, and you just keep on continuing to shine as we've always done." 

He adds ironically, these comments come when Guam's SKIP Entertainment Company just took 1st place in a dance competition in Canada, competing against hundreds of dance teams. The Guam Visitors Bureau meanwhile issued a statement, saying it's unfortunate that Stern made these comments but "we invite him to come to Guam and experience who we are and what we have to offer."
