I do love that girl though and she is as sweet in person as she seems on TV. In fact, I think I got a cavity the last time I saw her!
Still wondering what happened to Joshua Alexander? You know, the kid that did the back flip and fell flat on his back resulting in a ride to the hospital? Well, we’re not going to find out what happened at the hospital or after, but it’s clear that Joshua is okay given that he’s here waiting to find out his fate in the competition. Cat tells us that Joshua’s been emotional all day waiting to find out whether or not he’s made it into the top twenty and we see a bout of him crying in the holding room.
Finally it’s his turn to face the judges and Nigel tells him to come in and do a back somersault for them. Because injuries are HILARIOUS.
I mean, I get that he’s not seriously hurt and all, but he COULD have been. Nigel is never as amusing as he finds himself to be. Adam is the one giving Joshua his news and it’s not good. He’s not making it into the top twenty this year, but Adam tells him that they INSIST he come back next year.
Joshua’s rejection sets off a string of others, including Jasmine Mason who I really liked (Marshea of the car accident’s sister).
There are now thirteen spots filled in the top twenty and Matthew Kazmierczak (bless you!) is up next to find out whether or not he’s made it. Cat takes us down Memory Lane and reminds us that Nigel though Matthew looked like Ryan Gosling. I don’t agree, but he is a cutie. Mary has him go through some lame key and doorknob pantomime bullshit before telling him he’s made it. UGH, stop trying so hard to be cute, Mary. Cute requires less botox.
Shit. Is that an age spot?!?!
Darien Kujawa is next so I guess we’re going through the next contemporary round. I remember Darien; he’s an awesome dancer with awful feet. He also makes it through as does some chick named Janaya French who I don’t think we’ve seen AT ALL yet.
So now we’ve got two girls left. Amelia Lowe and Jill Johnson.
Gee……I wonder which one will make it through.
Christ, they’re not even trying to make this one hard, are they? I mean, I don’t remember seeing Jill once and Amelia has been plastered all over the auditions. It’s no surprise when she makes it through, is it?
These four are strutting their stuff with a Stacy Tookey routine.
Another strong showing. The ballet piece is still my favorite though. I do like the effortless quality that so many of these dancers are bringing to it this year; that’s something I always love to see.
They get a standing ovation from the judges and Stacy is blowing them kisses from the audience. Cat goes to Zooey first to hear her thoughts.
That was better than a three day cleanse
Mary thinks they were awesome and babbles some nonsense about her of them, starting to slur by the end. I think someone’s spiked her drink again. And by someone, I mean her.
Three spots left and seven guys vying for them. You’d think these are the hip hop guys, but it’s more like they’re a hodge podge of styles that haven’t been presented yet. Yes, there are some hip hoppers in there, but there’s also Cole, the martial arts inspired guy.
He makes it and I’m happy because I really liked him at his audition. He’s also trained so he should be able to handle other styles, though I’m sure Nigel will play up the whole martial arts thing like the guy is the next karate kid or something.
