Hey guys! Remember Taylor Hatala, the 11-year-old Canadian sensation who broke the internet a couple months back with her performance of a routine to Nicki Minaj's "Anaconda"? Well, Taylor's back.
Actually, Taylor never left. But now those of us outside Edmonton, Alberta, where she studies at KORE Dance Studio, have yet another way to enjoy her amazingness.
Choreographer Matt Steffanina just posted a video of Taylor nailing his routine to a remix of TSwift's ubiquitous "Shake It Off," and it is the thing that is going to get you through this dreary Tuesday. (Think you're over "Shake It Off"? Let the OTHER adorable and fantastically talented Taylor prove to you that you're not.)

It's usually right around the third or fourth week of "So You Think You Can Dance" audition rounds that we start itching for the live shows. Sure, the auditions are fun, inspiring, and entertaining, but at a certain point, we reach audition saturation. (And the live shows are just so good and feature so much more Cat Deeley.)
All that said, Nigel and co. kept things spicy this week, so our attention remained firmly glued to the screen. (It's been 16 seasons—who are we to doubt Nigel Lythgoe, sir?) Here's how it all went down.
