“So You Think You Can Dance” Recap: Memphis Auditions
Last night we joined Nigel, Mary and funnyman Wayne Brady in Memphis—the last stop on the "So You Think You Can Dance" Season 10 audition tour! Here are a few of our favorite moments from the show.
Dorian "Blu Print" Hector: Well, ladies and gents, the Dragon House Crew is back! And I think I loved the Dragon House package they showed before Blu Print's audition as much as I loved his actual performance. (Nigel, how about another Dragon House performance later in the season?!) He's definitely got the moves, but I'm not sure he has as much personality and charisma as Cyrus.
Tucker Knox: Despite a tragic car accident, this former Juilliard student is going places. Usually I'm not a fan of the "SYTYCD" sob stories, but man, Tucker's story left me in tears—easily one of the most-inspirational dancers I've watched audition. I can't wait to see him and his gorgeous technique in Vegas.
Courtney Thurston: She was great (if a bit over the top) and I can totally see her making the Top 20. BUT HER DAD! Most-adorable, supportive dance dad ever. He's definitely my favorite dancing dad this season.
Jenna Johnson: We've been watching (and obsessing over!) Jenna for years—and I'm sure you can see why. A little secret: Jenna's contemporary and ballet technique are just as spectacular as her ballroom skills.
Novien Yarber: He was technical, he was entertaining and he was totally unexpected. When he stepped on the stage, I thought we were in for another animation audition, but his contemporary knocked my socks off.
Jasmine Harper: Forget Cyrus, this chick doesn't need him one bit! In my opinion, she gave one of the most emotional, real auditions of the season. Clearly she has killer technique and legs for days, but it was her passion that hooked me.
The audition tour is OVER—yahoo!! Next week we'll be in Vegas, and I couldn't be more excited about it. Be sure to check back for our recap!
