Episode 1: Auditions (UT & NY)

Episode 2: Auditions 2nd Day (Los Angeles, CA )

Well, last night was the season premiere!!! I must tell you that I am on pins and needles just waiting to see who the top 20 will be. I already told you that China Lee Smith (19; Pocatello, ID) better be one of them. I am sure I will grow to love a few more, but she is at the top of my winning list. Tonight promises to be JUST as entertaining as the other. The only thing that I wish is that they would post the title of the songs that these people are dancing to…..that adds to the excitement as well.  So………

Take 2 in 5, 4, 3, 2, 2, 2, 2, #SYTYCD ?

Los Angeles, California

If you know like I know…. LA/Hollywood has been on EVERY single season of the show. I mean… these dancers are like the X-Men mutants of Dancers or LXD. Whoever they are and where ever they come from… I am here to watch.

Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and broadway choreographer, Tyce Diorio are the judges for this round. Did I mention that I have a crush on Tyce? I swear, if Mia Michaels will say my name on air once I can die happy and then kiss Tyce before I die. Just saying!

Jordan Casanova (18, Chino Hills, CA )- performing to Beyonce’s Naughty Girl,  she hit the stage running. I mean, her leg extensions were off the chain! I mean, they were also a tad bit redundant, but…..she worked it. The Split pirouette!!! Phenominal! I didnt see much choreography as I did this aura of “look at m! I’m sexy and I can do beautiful leg extensions.” At one point I thought that Nigel would never stop the music. Tyce ‘s commentary was wonderful and entertaining. But yes, she did border the line of classy and a worker at the Players’ Club trying to make that money and not let the money work her. I think she needs to learn the definition of sensual over sexual. But…. that is just my opinion. I have a feeling that they are going to send her to Vegas, but I could be wrong. *Presses play* And she has the golden ticket.

HOLD UP!!!!! While DC is on the stage giving his pre-dance interview…. the camera flies out to the audience and catches a familiar face…….someone that SYTYCD fans know very well; Stephen “tWitch” Boss. I knew he wouldnt be able to stay away from the Hollywood auditions…lol. Priceless…. just put a smile on my face. Now, if I could just cop that hat he has on…..fly. Wait… is that Comfort from Season 4 behind him?

Derion “D.C.” Chapman (28; Reseda,Ca) –  And I am getting old because I knew absolutely NOTHING about the “Cat Daddy” dance that was created by the rejects. So, can someone tell me ho wa wheelchair impression has anything to do with the Cat Daddy? I’m lost. But give it a day and it will be here in D.C.  NIGEL!!!! Nigel just did the “Cat Daddy”!!!! Priceless!!! WOW!!!! He personality came through every single movement! His hip hop flare told the story portrayed in the song. And how nice…. Nigel referred back to the time when tWitch did the conducting during his routine in Season 4. What a great compliment that was! And there tWitch is… sitting in the audience cheesing from ear to ear. Well, D.C. better get that golden ticket. If you’re wondering WHICH Season 4 routine Nigel is referring to…well, as an avid fan…I know, I know! I think he is referring to tWitch’s solo routine to Miri Ben-Ari’s We Gonna Win piece. So, you’re welcome…..lol


Arielle Coker (21; Los Angeles, CA)–  after being here I think…. 4 times…she is stronger than when we saw her years ago. I love her flexibility. The change in her tempo just captured me. I don’t think that I have ever seen the change in character that she just gave us. She went from lyrical, to hup hop, to jazz, to funk, to sensual to just outstanding! I mean… she will be my 2nd top favorite after China. Wow… she better make top 20!!!. WOW!!!! Golden ticket it is!

Hero McRae (26; Hollywood, CA via Japan)– I am not the smartest person in the world… but I am probably one of the more observant ones. Um…..isnt Hero from the dance group “We Are Hero” from America’s Best Dance Crew Season 4? Werent they dancing then for her grandmother who was sick at the time? So, what happened to the rest of her crew? Are they not together any more? Inquiring nosey ass people like me want to know! If that is not her… then I stand corrected. But I still love her. Her ticking style is to die for! Yes, she is definitely representing for the female hip hop dancers! Golden Ticket!

Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay 2…lmao!

Joe “Big C” Doyle (29; Pasadena, CA) Wait… did this nut just say that he is the Claus of Krump “Lil C’s pro-di-cee”? Ummm…..*closes mouth with hand* LMAO! This man said he is from the North Pole and spreads “buckness” cheer all year long to good little boys and girls!!!! This Santa Claus act is about as looney as the Ringo Starr audition the other night. Oddly enough… he can KIND OF krump. But the look on Mary’s face when he stripped his shirt was PRICELESS!!!hahahaha. Mary said, “Make it stop!” lmao! No golden ticket for him. Lawd!

WOW!!!!!!! Nigel called the old black guy in the shiny hat “tWitch’s uncle” lmao!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have soooooo many jokes for that but I will keep them to myself. But these rejects need to get out of their feelings.

Alexis Mason (18; Miami, FL)– The sister of Season 5 Winner, Jeanine Mason….she has son BIG Capizios to fill. I almost feel bad for her. I say that because she doesn’t get to be herself… she is living in her siblings shadow. Oh do I know that story too well. I want her to be her without them comparing her. And my DVR is paused right now so I have no clue what they are going to say, but I can already predict it just by the fact that Nigel asked ” and who is your sister?”.My answer would have been…. “it doesn’t matter because I am here under my own right”. A little protest there. But my only critique would have to be her face. SHe is broadcasting emotion that she really isnt feeling and it is coming across as fake. I want to feel that she feels her moves to. Her technique is amazing! Golden Ticket it is!!!

Just spotted Josh, winner of Season 4, in the audience with Jeanine. This is a reunion of seasons past…lol.

Patty Anne Miller (28; Los Angeles, CA)– Said that she is a “Style consultant” which is another way to tell me that she doesnt have a job….lol. But this hip hop routine better be on point.  LOVE IT!!!!! The opening was off the chain! I mean I had to check that my DVR wasnt skipping when she was ticking with such precision! And is this a Ke$ha song? Just beautiful! Golden Ticket!

LMAO!!!! Nigel told the joke ” no ballroom” and he said, “Like Tyce’s trousers” lmao!

Natalia & Sasha Mallory (18 & 23; Bakersfield, CA)– Natalia is the younger, thicker sister and Sasha is the older slimmer sister. I hate to use these terms, but for those who watched, you will remember better that way. I almost felt like them dancer together hurt one and helped the other. I wont say which is which, but it did. I feel like the judges eyes didnt know where to go because their spacing was all over the place. Their transitions were walk-tos and not to many movement variations. But, I can say that what they did have in their technique handbag was pretty clean and had some nice lines. I, and this is just my opinion, think that they will take one….and even that one may need to swing through to choreography. Okay, so they both went on to choreography. WOW! Natalia’s partner looked like he had a bit of a problem lifting her up. But…. they BOTH got the golden ticket. I am happy with that.

I wish that this were a 2 hour night! I mean… I want to see more of these talented people! But… I guess I will have to wait until next week. Will you be there? Good.
