Move over, Magic Mike guys!

Channing Tatum, Joe Manganiello and Matthew McConaughey may be doffing their duds to star in in this summer's stripper flick Magic Mike, but America's Got Talent host Nick Cannon gave them a serious run for their money on Monday's episode of the NBC series.

Bonding with an overweight bikini-clad contestant named Lulu, Cannon, 31, decided to step into her shoes and show AGT judges Howard Stern, Sharon Osbourne and Howie Mandel his best moves.

"One of the reasons Lulu came on this show is because last season she saw me on the pole and was inspired," Cannon told the audience before Lulu urged him to again work the pole.

Always aiming to please, Cannon quickly stripped off his suit jacket and button-down shirt to unveil a makeshift bikini top that matches Lulu's. "I've never seen you with your clothes off -- no wonder Mariah Carey's all over you!" Stern, 58, said approvingly after Carey's husband took a spin around the pole.

Putting himself all on the line in the name of comedy is no problem for Cannon -- as long as it puts AGT's contestants at ease. "I want to really connect with the person and root for the person," he explains. "If I was sitting at home, I'd be rooting for them regardless of what their talent was, and I think people really appreciate that."
