And now we’re heading over to Dallas. In this city Nigel and Mary are joined by Lil C. Oh good. Someone I like. When he not being overly gregarious, that is.
We start out with Bree Hafen, mom of two who has put her dancing on the back burner in order to take care of her kids. She’s now ready to do something for herself and this audition is it. She points out her kids to Nigel and since they’re adorable enough for TV, he calls them down to the judges’ table to watch their mom.
She’s good. And her son is freaking adorable, screaming for his mom and yelling out “We love you mommy!” I could just eat him up. She’s not even all the way through her audition when Nigel sends her son up to the stage with a ticket to Vegas for her. Could this kid get any cuter?
It works so well the first time, he sends her little girl up with a ticket as well. Nigel tells her that putting aside all the sugary sweetness with the kids, she’s a really good dancer. He wonders why she’s left it to now; why hasn’t she auditioned before? She tells him that she truly didn’t have the confidence to do it before now.
Her little girl is trying to escape and have her chance in the spotlight. In fact, Bree tells the judges that she’s saying “My turn, my turn.” Well, let’s give her a turn then, Nigel tells her.
Part of me is nauseated by how cute I think she is. I can’t help it, I’m a mom too.
We go from adorable to creepy. Now we’re cutting between two dudes, one that says he does a zombie style, the other who likens his style to an exorcism. I’m sure that one of them is going to be a joke and piss me off. Right now my bet is on the exorcist guy since they are mostly only showing his face and the top of his head.
First to dance is Stepheon Stewart, the zombie dancer.
He’s good. And creepy. So mission accomplished, I guess. Mary cackle-laughs throughout, so you know she likes it. Lil C is stomping his foot and yelling about how that is what he wants to see, so I guess he liked it too.
As Nigel starts to talk, Lil C keeps yelling out “I love my job!” He may want to shut his piehole if he loves it so much.
Should I tell him to shut the fuck up now or give him a right talking to later?
Nigel tells Stepheon that he doesn’t know quite where to begin with something like that, but when he rolls his eyes back into his head it is creepy as hell. He’s not sure that Stepheon is all there, but he doesn’t care because it was one of the most entertaining routines that he’s seen.
Mary says he is extraordinary and a scary little wild creature and she loved every minute of it. Lil C starts out by saying he loves his job (yes, we know) and this is the reason, all the hours he has put in, all the no’s he’s ever heard, the countless focus he has devoted to the art of dance and movement, seeing performers like him, he is the reason why he continues to do what he does. Way to make it all about you, C! He gets a ticket to Vegas.
Time for the Exorcist, aka Hampton Williams. This is the guy that I’m pretty certain is going to be a joke. He starts out by telling the judges that he created this style (red flag #1) and then he says he can take their pain and fear and he can interpret it and you won’t have it no more. (OH GEEZ)
