So You Think You Can Dance Season 10 Recap: LA/Austin Auditions
We’re back with our first two hour episode of So You Think You Can Dance. I hope you are tuning in. No? Whyever not?
Fine, here’s what you missed. We’re back in LA, like we were in the début episode, wrapping up what was cut from last Tuesday. So Jessie Tyler is once again our guest judge.
We opened with a contortionist named Slick who got sent to choreography. His routine was neat, but he wasn’t really a dancer as much as he was a double and triple jointed wonder. He was followed by a couple of average auditions that weren’t worth getting excited about. In fact the first dance worth seeing wasn’t until 20 minutes in when we got a Latin couple.
There was only one other audition in LA to see, that was Emilio’s:
That bit with the elbow was sick.
Onward to Austin, where we trade out Jesse Tyler for Minnie Driver. We also meet the youngest auditioner ever. Seriously, he’s pre-auditioning for next decade. Also, he’s not married. Adorable.
Getting serious, it’s auditions like this next one that are what you’re missing by not watching. Forget the tears and the sob story. This boy is dancing as if his life depends on it. The only tragedy is that he’s not as good as his father.
Dannon was good, but his haunted house make up video package overshadowed his actual routine. I preferred Shane, who followed him. (Noted this is the second stutterer on a Nigel show in a row. We won’t hold how Lazaro turned out against him.)
Daniela was ok, but oddly the girls just weren’t moving me tonight. Not surprised she merely went to choero. The one that blew me away this week was Nick. This kid is making the voting rounds. Hands down.
Mary calls him a religious experience. It’s auditions like these that lead to routines down the line that make this entire show worth having on the air.
We closed the episode with a family of dancers. (You might recognize the dad, “The Exorcist” from last season.) Nigel puts all of them through to Vegas, even daughter. Hey! The other kid got to go to Disneyworld, and all this one gets is to go to Vegas? Sometimes life is so unfair.
Next week the show comes to the east coast and Boston. You will be tuning in, yes?
