Some of the untrained dancers are struggling with the choreography. This is no surprise as it happens every year. Hampton is REALLY struggling and he makes a decision to leave. He goes up onto the stage to let the judges know he’s quitting while graciously thanking them for the experience. Awwww…..he’s a sweet kid. The judges must think so too because they give him a standing ovation after he quits.
Did someone spike their drinks or something?
Also struggling are the guys from Dragon House. Andre Rucker (the guy that audition first) decides he is also going to call it quits, but he’s not going to tell anyone. He’s going to leave. His fellow Dragons are against this approach and tell him that it will also make them look bad. He’s not listening and takes off the way he planned. Wow. That was bull.
Second Dragon, Andre, sticks it out but doesn’t do too well when it’s time to dance for the judges. He gets cut and now we’re down to one Dragon, Cyrus aka Glitch.
So here’s the thing; he’s not fabulous. But there’s something about the guy that I really like. The judges like him as well (and everyone else in the same audition group). He’s floored by their decision and really excited. He’s so cute.
Dancers cut in the hip hop round: Gene Lombardo aka Praying Mantis dude & Bree Hafen (mom of two) as well as others we’ve not really met before.
It’s day two and time for Broadway. UGH. Not UGH to Broadway. UGH to the Broadway round because Sir BitchyPants is the choreographer this round which always makes SO MUCH sense given that the one time the dude choreographed a Broadway show, it closed two and half months later. BitchyPants is doing a number about getting roofied. He’s as full of himself as he always is. I’m as unimpressed as I ever am.
Cat tells us that everyone seems to be having a hard time with the routine and then segues smoothly into talking about Witney Carson and Lindsay Arnold, both ballroom dancers that are out of their element in the Broadway genre. Although probably less so than hip hoppers, right?
Anyway, this leads us off onto a trip down memory lane, recalling last week’s audition show in Salt Lake City where both girls auditioned. Turns out they’ve known each other for a long time, are good friends, and now are rooming together in Vegas. Nigel obviously asked the second crew to get some shots of them in their room to add to his monkey spanking collection…
And decides to share with the rest of us.
I’m unsurprised to find them both moving on to the next round. Bunches and bunches of other dancers move through this round and then we get to Alexa Anderson. Remember her? She was the one that made it to the end last year and then they picked Ryan over her?
The judges think she’s an amazing dancer but rip into her about the lack of emotion on her face. Adam tells her he is sick of saving her and she had better bring something in the next round.
Other than dead fish eyes
We check back in with Twatface Teddy (grrrrr) and he GETS CUT!!!!!! Woohoo!! YEAH! He leaves the stage and immediately has MUCH attitude saying CLEARLY it’s disappointing to get cut. He doesn’t stop there though, saying he doesn’t know how to please the judges and he doesn’t know how to fix it apparently. So why should he come back and waste his time? HAHAHAHA – YES! Please DON’T come back!!!
He’s STILL not done and bitters on, saying he just LOVES to be reprimanded in public and he is never coming back again. Promise????
See ya never Twatty!
Twenty three other dancers get the boot in the Broadway round.
