SYTYCD -- OMG! I'm interested!  
Finally, So You Think You Can Dance auditions offers up some blog-worthy ones. I've liked a few people the last few nights, but not enough to even consider posting until the first 10 minutes of tonight's audition round, followed by another one seven minutes later.

So, my early favorites are easily ...

- Sheila Kaiser -- Lovely personality, lovely face, lovely expression while dancing, lovely lines, lovely dancing. I just thought she was lovely, lovely, lovely. She's the first female dancer this season who's grabbed me. And I loved her well-timed, well-executed little-shimmy mid-dance. That was the clincher.

- Jeremiah Hughes -- I've been waiting for my eye candy. Hello!?!? We had Danny and Neil last season. We need some eye candy. Shallow is part of this game for me thank you very much. And pretty, pretty Jeremiah hit the mark. And he's a gorgeous dancer. Yes, he got a bit sloppy towards the end, and yes, he needs work, BUT, he kept my attention and did some nice, nice stuff. I like his personality so far, his dancing and his face. Pretty, pretty face. Thank you, eye candy gods. Please make sure that Jeremiah makes it to the top 20. Pretty, pretty please.

- Brandon Bryant -- I think he should point his toes more -- which, honestly, considering the talent on display here, was likely part of the choreography. Overall, I thought he was amazing. Just amazing. (You know having only my mom as a choreographer and telling me things my whole life, I really do love when my opinion is validated by the judges who have the experience and training to back it up. So go me.)

Three comments based on all the nights so far that bug ...

- Too, too many nights of auditions. SERIOUSLY. Too many nights. God!

- Honestly, I think they highlight WAAAAAAAAAAY too many poppers. Yes, when done well, it's cool -- but more styles, please. Especially when in the history of this show, poppers don't tend to do that great outside of popping.

- The "Snuggle happy dance?" Have we found the new definition of lame? I think so.

I am so sick of poppers. Seriously. It's not the kind of dance I like and it's not the kind of dance I want to watch.

Agreed on all the dancers you mentioned. And yes - I was wondering if they were going to cast any cute guys this season at all? Lots of cute girls that will make it - I think we've seen 4 or 5 of the top 20 but the boys - well as you say, the eye candy has been a little lacking.

I'm so bummed Marquis didn't get any screen time. He's gorgeous but Brandon (was that the built guy who lied about his age)is very similar in style to Marquis. Marquis told us it's between him and another guy very like him and this must be the dude. And while I thought it was a little busy (his dance that is) I can appreciate throwing the whole kitchen sink at the judges so I'll give him a pass on that. Beyond doubt his dancing was amazing and he is a deserved top 20.

I'm so tired of the auditions. Do we have to go to Milwaukee? Bring on Vegas.

Yup, lots of cute girls, but not so much with the boys ... until Jeremiah. Ooh la la.

Don't know who Marquis is -- I'm assuming someone you know? I was behind on the eps until last night so I haven't been reading any SYTYCD posts. And, yes, Brandon was the one who lied about his age.

They do this on AI too, a RIDICULOUS amount of auditions. It's just insane.

Marquis is a boy from my dance studio. I know he made it to Vegas and to the top 28 but I don't know anymore after that. Based on his lack of screen time, I'm starting to think he might have got cut at the 28 mark.

Not necessarily. They didn't show Neil before Vegas, and I think he was only in a few quick shots there as well. (Unless I really didn't notice him before the top 20, but I remember thinking 'Who is this guy? in the 20 because I didn't recognize him at all.)

I was wondering if I had seen Neil before Vegas and I didn't think I had. Thanks. So there's still some hope. He's really a great, great dancer and I think it will come down to if he can fill a slot they want because there is nothing he can't do.
