The next audition round belongs to Sonya. LOVE her. As you’d expect, there are some definite struggles going on with her style. Shafeek Westbrook (street dancer from Philly) seems to be having a particularly hard time. Rather than keeping a positive attitude and working harder, he bitches moans about too many people on the stage while scowling and acting like a two year old.
He’s been partnered up with Danielle Dominguez, aka Bacon Girl, and she’s being really sweet to him, trying to help and encouraging him, but he is having none of it. In fact, at one point we see her practicing with someone else and then Shafeek gets all snotty about THAT!! Shit, the girl has to practice with someone, doesn’t she???
Soon enough, it’s their turn to audition. Shafeek scowls his way through the dance and Nigel calls him out on it when they’re done. He gets cut. Also cut this round is Rachel Applehans (stripper burlesque chick from Salt Lake City). Rachel refuses to leave the stage and begs for another chance to prove herself to them. She just KNOWS she is a star and wants another chance to show them what she’s got. They decide to allow her to dance for her life. BARF.
Meanwhile, Shafeek is making his way out of the theatre, trash talking the judges and the show all the way out, saying he’s a better dancer than Twitch and Russell and that he’ll smoke Lil C. Wait, scratch that, Lil C cool; he’ll smoke Nigel. He don’t need to go to no TV, TV come to him. CLEARLY because I’m sure the show came begging for him to audition rather than him showing up for an open casting call.
Sonya’s routine seems to be really weeding out the dancers. So much so that by the time it’s Giovanni Allen’s turn to go there aren’t enough girls for everyone. So Bacon Girl is nice enough to dance with him.
Anyone shocked by Giovanni getting cut? Yeah, me either. Kicking your partner in the head is never going to get you cast! Bacon Girl keeps insisting she’s fine, but the medics are concerned enough that after a while they strap her onto a gurney and wheel her off to an ambulance. Damn. That sucks.
Remember Amelia Lowe? You know, the girl that had an entire silent movie package allotted to her in the city auditions? Well, she’s SUPER excited to be here and even MORE excited to be dancing Sonya’s choreography since it is really in her wheelhouse, or her JAM as she likes to say.
Uh oh. Turns out the judges aren’t impressed with her and so they’re making her dance for her life.
On the other hand, Lindsay Arnold and Cyrus get put through to the next round, although Sonya does tell Cyrus that he needs to get some contemporary training.
It looks like the only two dancing for their lives this round are Amelia and Rachel. Who knows if that’s really the case? So, Rachel is up first and is doing another one of her strip club routines.
There’s so little dancing in what she’s doing, and honestly, I’m annoyed that they even put her through to Vegas because she sucks pretty hard. The judges are not impressed and it appears that she didn’t even give Nigel a boner!
She keeps going on about how she knows she’s a star and I want them to take out the big hooked cane and haul her ass off the stage. I’m over this. UNTIL….Debbie Allen…..I LOVE you!
