I don’t know about you Gasmi, but I think we’re off to a great start so far this season! Of course, there are still those stupid auditions that take up our time for no reason at all, but I am happy that so far there seem to be fewer of these than we’ve seen in the past. Hopefully that trend will continue! One trend I could do without?
Ugh. He’s so gross, and now Mary’s in on the game too (although recent evidence suggests she was playing the perv game all along as well. PUKE). But enough of pervs, let’s get to the dancing!!
Cat spells out the rules once again: awesome=ticket to Vegas, good=choreography, suck balls=get the fuck out. Unless it’s Nigel’s balls you’re sucking, THEN you might get a ticket to his dressing room.
Joining Mary and Nigel in L.A. is Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
He’s a cutie pie and I loved his guest judging stint last year, so I’m happy to see him. Honestly, I’m just super glad it’s not old BitchyPants again! Mary goes over some rules with them: no lip syncing, no self worship (aka dancesturbation) and no booty shaking all over the place unless you’re really good at it. Jesse also adds his two cents.
First up to audition is Alexa Anderson. She made it to Vegas last year and was in the crop of dancers who made it to the green mile show (the one where they pick the top twenty). It was between her and horseface Ryan, and Nigel chose ole horsey. Hey, sometimes you have to give into those riding crop fantasies!
Anyway, we know she’s going to be a good dancer if she made it all the way through Vegas last year, right?
Of course right. She’s going straight through to Vegas.
Outside, Cat tells us, dancers are competing for camera time. And her attention.
I love Cat.
Next up inside is Jontel “Johnny Waacks” Gibson. He’s dressed like a 70’s refuge and tells us that his dancing is like singing with his body. Eh. It’s wacking and I’ll be honest that the style doesn’t impress me all that much, but he seems like a sweet kid. Hopefully this isn’t a joke audition.
Nigel makes a crack about Soul Train and proceeds to launch into a giggling fit about wacking.
Anyway, wack, wack, wack, giggle giggle, giggle. It’s time for the kid to dance.
I’m still not a huge fan of the style, but whatevs. Do I think he can hang in there with other styles? Nope, but his audition didn’t make me want to claw my face off either so there’s that!
Nigel is impressed with Johnny’s wacking and thinks he has incredible musicality. Mary thinks he’s adorable, and Jesse wishes he could have him as a pocket wacker. He gets sent on to choreography.
Next up is Eliana Gerard. She’s a ballerina (studied at Joffrey), dances with the silks, performed with Cirque, AND pole dances.
She’s also super cute and seems sweet, so she’s got that going for her as well. I’m trying to hate her, but it’s not working.
