China's got another talent: Man wallops his vitals with a hammer
A 68-year-old performs "iron crotch" on stage, and he's not even close to the Top 16 of this year's show
Reality TV show China's Got Talent finished its two-month long qualifying contest last Sunday in Shanghai.
The judges selected 16 teams and individuals to perform in the Great Hall of the People in Beijing for the semi-final.

While some viewers argue over the qualifications of the top 16 talents, we are surprised that ball-basher Zhou Xin isn't on the list.

The video, picked up by Shanghaiist, shows a menagerie of weird talents in this year's qualifying contest. The highlight, without doubt, is 68-year-old Zhou thwacking his nuts, first with a weight, then with a hammer.
Zhou claims he practices one of the Shaolin kung fu skills called "iron crotch gong" (铁裆功), but his act was immediately dismissed after judge Annie Yi screamed in horror.
The final of the second season of "China's Got Talent" will be held on July 10 at Shanghai Stadium. And Susan Boyle has confirmed she will attend.
