Anyhoo, the ones I liked ...
Peter Sabasino (the tap-dancer) - I'm curious to see what else he can do. He was very good though, and clearly a showman.
Nabuyo - I didn't write him down at first, but when he was stepping up after the choreography round, I thought: 'I really hope he makes it.' And I smiled big when he did, so yeah, I'm putting him down.
UGGGHHHH!! The return of Lauren. UGHGGGHGHGHGHH!!!!!!!!!!!!
Arielle Taylor - I liked her, but didn't like the choreography.
Kellan Stancil - Gorgeous dancer. I think the umbrella was unnecessary, and excessive face-pulling, but gorgeous, gorgeous dancer. Ohh, I'd written my comment above before he spoke, and hearing what the umbrella represents. Awwww. So beautiful. (And I imagine the face-pulling was more trying to hold back his emotion.)
Chimezie - REALLY good use of music, the beats in sync with the choreography. Hopefully, he can apply that gift to more than just hip-hop. Excellent job. After he got his Vegas ticket, I was like, 'yeah, he's my favorite right now!' Love him.
Kayla Radomski - She was very, very good. And, yes, dangit the grandparents got to me too.
Aww, Gerrie, I can't help but think of you whenever they spotlight anything about Sonya.
I can, but I can NOT believe that Nigel said the two guys dancing together would alienate most of their audience. Yes, some of it, but not most of it. God, Nigel, not everyone is a homophobic ass like you!!!
Brandon Bryant - I recognized his name from last year's post and sure enough I did write him up glowingly --
- 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.This year, I think I liked the choreography better last year, but he's still amazing. Hopefully, he makes it through this time!!!!
So no Jeremiah, Evan or Sheila, but the auditions aren't over yet.
And that's all she wrote.
