So You Think You Can Dance Season 7 Ep. 2

The judges remained in Los Angeles for the first half of this episode’s auditions. And then it was off to Chicago, the Windy City!


Los Angeles Auditions

First up was Lauren Froderman, an 18 year old cheerleader who caught Nigel’s interest with her saucy (yet still innocent) dance moves.


Then came “Hella Hung,” a ladies man who stood tall at a whopping 5”1. He performed a breakdancing, hip-hop, free-style…type…thing. The dancing was just as strange as the guy himself!


We also saw Cristina Santana and her ballroom partner Pepe Alverez. Last season Cristina nearly made it into the top 20. And this year she’s back fighting for her second chance at a spot. Pepe, on the other hand, dropped out in the choreography round.


Taylor Costello danced with passion and purpose. She was adopted and her birth mother, a former dancer, was murdered. Now Taylor is living the dancing dream for the both of them. However after performing in the choreography round, the judges had to let her go.


In LA, we also met Melinda Sullivan, a unique tap dancer; and Ryan Ramirez, Mia Michaels’ 18 year old protégé.

Chicago Auditions

In Chicago, we met a deaf dancer who moved to the vibrations of the music; the wacky-haired Malinda Jacobson who performed her unique dance style “Hick-Hop”; contemporary dancer Adrian Lee; and Christopher Gilbert, who Adam Shankman playfully called a “dancing Urcle.”


Kent Boyd, an 18 year old small town boy, performed a beautiful contemporary routine and made it through choreography. Then 20 year old Jarrod Mayo completely shocked the judges with his impressive moves.


Lastly, 18 year old Andrew Phillips danced not just for himself but for his twin brother who was born with a spinal disability. Even though there were many imperfections in his dancing skills, he made it through choreography.
