I could have done without the crawling on the floor.
Adam says he thinks if some things were a little different in his life that he would move to Salt Lake City. LOLOLOL! He thinks she’s fun and fantastic to watch but there wasn’t much there in technique. Mary would like to see if she can do something else. Nigel got a boner but would like to know if she can do more than crawl around on the ground. She’s going through to choreography.
Now we get the montage o’crappy dancers. I get even more annoyed than usual because we’ve already been subjected to full segments of crappy dancers. GAH!
Time for the last audition. Leroy Martinez is a big guy with a big heart. He’s wearing a T-shirt with “Peacemakers” on it and he takes this opportunity on national TV to tell us all a little bit about the organization that exposes kids to dance to keep them out of trouble. LOVE HIM. Of course Nigel eats this up because he’s all about dance as a savior to the youth (especially if he can circle it back to SYTYCD), but here is one area where I almost always DO agree with Nigel. Dance is a magical thing and I can never fault an organization that fosters love of dance (or other arts) in kids.
Not only is Leroy a sweetie, but the guy can MOOOOOOOVE!!! Holy cow! For a big guy he’s surprisingly nimble. He’s surprised the judges as well as I think they were prepared for a heartwarming shout out to his organization, a pat on the head, and a trip out the door. Nigel and Mary actually high fived during his routine!
Adam tells Leroy that he is why dance is so amazing and important. Mary doesn’t know if he can make it one the show but he’s going places in life. And Nigel talks again about how dance makes us all better people.
What? I’m a better perv than I would have been without dance.
Adam tells him that this is why this is his favorite job, because of people like Leroy that inspire him and make him happy to be a part of something special like this. He loves his spirit and thinks that he is phenomenal. FUCKING AWESOME!!!
Mary tells Leroy he is an absolute joy and he’s just one of those people that you want to route for. She’s not sure he can be a competitor on the show, but he is a competitor in life. Nigel thinks Leroy embodies the spirit of dance.
Leroy gets to go to choreography. After Nigel tells him he doubts he’ll be able to do it. He’s such a horse’s ass. He doesn’t have much time to catch his breath because the choreography round is starting now!!
Johnny and Whitney get the boot. Thank god. Corset clad Rachel gets put through to Vegas and I think it’s because Nigel wants to see what other underwear she’s gonna wear as dancewear. And last but not least, it’s Leroy’s turn. It’s no surprise that they cut Leroy even though he hung in there a hell of a lot more than they thought he would (and better than we’ve seen other people do and still get a ticket).
And there you have it, Gasmi. We’ve reached the end of the audition rounds and are now headed to Vegas. Are you as excited as I am???
Thank so much for reading and for your commentary, you always make my day! Oh, and thanks for your patience this week – I was trying to get the recap banged out a little sooner, but between my birthday and the first dance recital for my sister’s studio, it became obvious very quickly that I had overestimated my time management skills!!
See ya soon!
