The ladies definitely took center stage tonight on So You Think You Can Dance on FOX. Lucky for Nigel, he came back on the right night! Salt Lake City proved to be one of the craziest yet best auditions thus far. We saw Mary in tears tonight, Nigel left speechless, and Mia just plain stunned.
First there was Bryan, who was out to prove that Jazz was not the only style in Salt Lake City as he came out with his hip hop moves. Unfortunately, he could not handle the choreography round as
he decided to quit and come back for another season.
The only other stand out male of the evening tonight on So You Think You Can Dance on FOX was Pascal, and the only reason he stood out was due his lack of dancing. He looked more like he was having seizures and convulsions than dancing. At least he gave the judges and myself some good laughs. He couldn’t even answer Mia when asked what style he was dancing.
The ladies auditioning on So You Think You Can Dance on FOX on the other hand, were on fire tonight. The very first ticket to Vegas was Haley, who blew the judges away with her dancing. She rocked the stage tonight. And we saw Lee who I could have sworn said she auditioned prior to tonight.Â She was incredible, until the end when she ripped off a toenail and had to get medical attention. Both gals did get through to Vegas.
Nigel was in his glory tonight as we also got to meet Ariana, a burlesque dancer who decided to do a stripper routine for her audition. It was extremely awkward, and you could see that in both Mary & Mia’s eyes although Nigel loved it so much he was speechless. Luckily for Mary & Mia, Ariana did not pass the choreography round.
There were quite a few ballroom dancers tonight on So You Think You Can Dance on FOX as well. We saw a husband and wife team, who both wound up going through to Vegas after being sent to choreography. One dancer left Mary in tears and unable to speak.Â Iveta, danced with such passion, she blew everyone away. She looked like a seasoned professional, not someone auditioning on So You Think You Can Dance.
It was a very interesting hour in Salt Lake City and the ladies came out on top. Tomorrow on So You Think You Can Dance on FOX, the auditions are officially over and Vegas begins. Be sure to tune in tomorrow at 8 pm so you don’t miss the excitement! See you after the show.
