    Right because maybe they can't do anything else in an hour, but can after more practice.

    Exactly. Plus, between auditions and vegas round, they'd have time to hit a class or two in something other than their own style.

    Bland McDance would be an awesome username.

    Holley, I provided said rep for you.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Wow - they showed us an entire ballroom audition- and it was great. I was mesmerised by him, and my husband was by her (Misha?). I never catch the dancer's names at this stage.

    He probably couldn't judge the weeks that Allison performs, but he could be a guest judge other weeks. I think that would be great.

    Really nice that they're pretty much only showing us good auditions now, even though I'm still irritated by the stupid audience reaction shots during the dances.

    Ballroom couple was great! But he seemed a lot better to me than she was - sharper, faster, more attack - of course, she is a hot mamacita so gets the tongue bathing

    I was prepared to be about the daughter of the jazz singers who's looking to get into "the industry". But she was fantastic! Her solo incorporated a lot of the moves we've seen from way too many contemporary dancers, but she performed them as if they meant something more than "look at me! look at my extension! give me a prize!", which is the hallmark of all those interchangeable competition barbies.

    The guy who danced to the Zoe Keating music was also amazing

    Glad sever stutter guy got through - loved when Nigel was all "I'm going to make you talk a lot and we won't interrupt you" and he was "PLEASE finish my sentences so I don't have to flail up here!!!". I wonder if they told him he couldn't tap or use other techniques that he talked about beforehand while he was up there to ease the stutter.

    What was with Family Week? And was anyone else surprised by some of the dancers who got tickets straight to Vegas? There was a white contemporary dancer - I think the guy with the sparkly pants who wanted Austin to represent a little freakier - who made me miss what the show used to be...dancers who weren't already completely pro level, but who had great potential...but I thought no way, he would be lucky to get to the choreo round, and he got a ticket! Also, the son of the dance studio family - son was good but not quite there, and his dad totally pwned him in the dance off. Get dad on the show!!

    But what can I say, I fell for the shameless heartstring-pulling stunt of having a family of Exorcists on stage I noticed after Mama Exorcist got onstage that she was also wearing a #, and thought, clearly Exorcist is getting through but it would be mean to show all this and not send her too. So, even though that was in no way an actual audition, I approve of sending the whole family. Cause sometimes I need something to counteract my grinchy cynicism

    I haven't finished watching the whole thing, but I thought the latin dancers were great. The ballet guy from Orlando Ballet? Not so great. Eek, the guy with the dislocating arms - he is going to be so sorry he did that when he is older - I used to be able to jump rope with my arms, and they'd come out of socket with no pain, and now at 52, it hurts to sleep on them and it is hard to lift my arm over my head.

    I actually enjoyed it. The kid is musical and obviously plays the "I point at you and you do stuff" game when her parents are practicing, so it looked fairly well choreographed. My guess is that the producers know that Exorcist has been taking classes, so it was straight through.

    Really enjoyed the flexer, in general I love bone breaks, tutting and flexing, but on the other hand many of these dancers want to claim credit for innovating these moves when in reality they have been used in contortion for who knows how long and also in New Way Vogue as well. Still wonderfully talented and I love popping my shoulders out myself so I can't blame them.

    I just watched my tape today. Exorcist guy made me tear up and cry again, and they really didn't even focus on him as much as they did the child and the 3 of them! I generally don't like that kind of movement and dancing so how the hell does he do that to me?! I still remember him from last time and the same thing happened.

    And what was the name of that song he used if anyone remembers?

    "My Immortal" by Evanescence. Same song he used last year.

    I really wish they would cut out the audience reaction shots during the auditions. They seem completely fake...

    ^^agreed, not to mention it feels like you see just as much audience & judges shots as you do the dancing & it's starting to drive me crazy!

    There were several good auditions last night.
    Too bad that Enoch -- sad story aside -- couldn't get through choreography.

    I think he may have been invited just to present that work dedicated to his cousin. If he had any real intention of competing, he would have been taking partnering classes.

    I thought that might have been the case, also.

    Honestly I don't even think his original audition was good. Emotional, yes but not good. He has had plenty of time to take classes and get to be an all around better dancer. it seems he didn't. Too bad. I would love to see him back and triumph. There does seem to be a lot of exceptional talent this year. Some of the people though are being chosen for their stories and or their telegenic quality.

    I thought that bitchy guy coming back was interesting. Personally I think he deserved to go through to Vegas. But he should have done the choreo. But I also get why he was pissed based on their comments. I know the judges want to see how he can work with others but they could also see that in Vegas and send him home then. I know he is a brat but I kind of get why he was taking a stand for himself. And he may have behaved better if he was sent to Vegas and turned it around. I doubt it but I think part of his attitude was based on being rejected and being called "un-masculine" in the first place. Which is pretty fricken insulting even if it is true. He did try and improve. But guy needs to get to therapy and figure out why he needs to prove himself to the world and be individual at the expense of his career. Dance is about partnership and working with others.

    I wish I could get into the ballroom stuff more but it just seems so fake or "performed teeth and tits" to me a lot of the time. That guy that took his shirt off was pretty hot. Blonde girl was good but kind of left me cold. I liked Salsa girl but I think she has a ways to go yet. But I felt her as more authentic in her expression. Her body is to die for. And I would love to see her brother back. What a sweetie.

    I wish Nigel would shut up during the performances.
