The stream starts up and the performer walks out onto stage. They really know how to work a crowd as they start there performance. Have you ever wondered how these performers get started? Or how they get ready for a show? Well I got lucky enough to interview the SL performer, Biggen Inglewood.

Second Life performers are always trying to entertain the crowd. The best thing about live performing is, how much fun you are having. Knowing how an entertainer got started, is not always something you learn. I find that it's always interesting to hear how a performer got started.
