The audience went wild over Marty (he appeared in the 2 trial broadcasts earlier in June 58) who sang Buddy Knox's “Somebody Touched Me” in addition to a medley with the Dallas Boys in which he sang Elvis' “Baby I Don’t Care” and Ricky Nelson's “Poor Little Fool.”

Jimmy Henney introduced an exciting new talent making his debut television appearance -- 17-year-old Cliff Richard backed by his group The Drifters. Cliff pouted and gyrated his way through Milton Allen's "Don’t Bug Me Baby” and his first ever-record release, “Move It!”.
