They give her a whole video package and while she’s rather sweet, she still is not here with any chance to make it on to the show. I really hate when they do this. So FINALLY we get to her audition.
As I suspected, she is nowhere near good enough to be on the show. And even though she was a sweet waste of my time, she was still a waste so now I’m irritated.
Like that wasn’t going to happen anyway?
Listen Hugh, don’t start with me right now, okay? I don’t need sass from you tonight!
‘Sokay. I can never stay mad at you!
I don’t need to tell you that the girl is NOT going through to anything, do I?
We move from aliens into a montage o’families, including one girl’s dad who gets up on stage to shake it. I’d be annoyed but then I remember Lynn and her alien dancing and am just happy that we’re not subjected to an extended version of this.
Next up is Dee Tomasetta. If you couldn’t tell from her name, she’s Italian and she’s got the family to prove it!
She’s the only girl so everyone is super protective of her. She seems like a sweet girl.
She gets a standing ovation from her fellow dancers, but the judges don’t join in. That’s not to say that they don’t like her, they do. Mary tells Dee that she loved every single second of it.
Dee is so overcome with emotion that she tries to kill herself.
Luckily she doesn’t succeed.
Adam thinks she is extremely special. She has unbelievable technique, unbelievably transitions, she is completely living in her world. For someone so young she has a beautiful wisdom in her dancing.
Nigel says that he is going to have to be the voice of reason here. SHE IS GOING TO VEGAS!!!! Is it just me or did you guys find it adorable when she called her grandma to say she made it? So cute.
Time for another montage. This time around it’s all about the “unique” styles that people bring to the auditions. Oh, and Nigel takes an opportunity to be a perv once more. I know you’re shocked by that.
Speaking of unique, next up is Gene Lonardo who tells us his audition piece is about the life cycle of a praying mantis. He’s decked out in green glitter paint and I honestly can’t even begin to describe the level of my rage right now. Not because I have rage issues about insects, but because we’re going through yet another BULLSHIT audition. I wish I could punch Nigel in the face right now.
Holy crap! I take back what I just said (well, except for the part about punching Nigel)!! This guy is fabulous! What was setup to be a total joke and waste of audition space ended up being a really great fucking audition!! Rarely does this show surprise me but when it does it is so awesome!
Nigel calls it intriguing and entertaining. He totally thought it was going to be one of those really shitty auditions as well. Mary tells him that she loved it and Adam says he’s sort of brilliant. Nigel and Adam talk about how Sonya would LOVE Gene.
Gene then tells Nigel that the female praying mantis was him. Bwahahahahahaha! He tells Nigel it’s because he strikes the most fear into him and I laugh and laugh and laugh because we all know just how horrified Nigel is at being called a girl.
Nigel tells him he’s going home – to VEGAS baby!
