Vincent Canello
Judging Amy:
Roadhouse Blues

(ep. #5.14) February 10, 2004



Despite their protests, Maxine and Amy fail to convince anyone that that dinners out with Ignacio and David don't constitute dating; Amy is asked to decide if a man in the Witness Protection Program can regain custody of his eleven year old son after the boy's mother dies;Lauren and Victor are unhappy when they discover that their parents are dating; Maxine races against time to prevent the participants in a suicide pact at a local high school from carrying out their plans; Shelby's band gets a gig at a local bar, and Peter's invitation to his mother and sister to hear him play provides the opportunity for the relationships between Amy and David, Maxine and Ignacio, and Peter and Shelby to grow and intensify on the dance floor and stage.

Nick takes the part of Vincent Canello, a small-time crook in the witness protection program because he ratted on the mob. When his wife dies, he emerges from hiding to try to get custody of his son, James.


I can only describe Nick's performance as absolutely brilliant - it's heart-wrenching in its intensity.
