So You Think You Can Dance aired the Boston auditions last night. It was pretty cool seeing some of my hometown peeps performing for the judges. Speaking of which, Tyce Diorio was the guest judge in Beantown.
There were quite a few dancers highlighted that went on to Vegas, which may be an indication that the talent here, overall, was good.
Videos after the JUMP…
Teddy Tedholm – 18 – Rockaway, NJ – Dude in wacky golf pants thrilled the judges. He’s quirky and talented, but I’m not convinced he’s more than a one trick pony. It’s straight to Vegas for Teddy. – VIDEO
Jean Lloret – 22 – Brockton, MA – John’s outrageous B-Boy moves had the judges freaking out. Literally. They were so impressed they sent him straight to Vegas. – VIDEO
Kimara Wood – 18 Lorton, VA – We caught just a glimspe of this Vegas-bound dancer. – VIDEO
Channing Cooke – 18 – Haverhill, MA – The judges wanted to see Channing in the choreography round first, but she eventually made it to Vegas. Lots of backstory about her part-time job working in a Northshore Ice cream shop. We call milkshakes frappes here. Isn’t that weird? – VIDEO
Russell Ferguson – 19 – Roxbury, MA – A talented krumper who makes it to Vegas after choreography. I’m with Nigel on this one–it’s pretty boring to watch as solo dancing. After, Tyce is so happy he farts. Lulz. – VIDEO
Karen and Matthew Hauer – 27 – Fort Lee, NJ – This hot, married couple impressed the judges with their ballroom dancing and got tickets straight to Vegas. – VIDEO
Gene Bersten – 21 – Minnetonka, MN – Nigel called Gene out on the super-annoying faces he pulls. He makes it to Vegas after choreography. – VIDEO
Kevin “K ‘Bez” Hunte – 23 – Brooklyn, NY – Tyce has an annoying hissy fit on Kevin after his b-boy routine failed to incorporate the contemporary dance training he’d been taking. Whatevah. – VIDEO
