So You Think You Can Dance: Season 8, Ep. 2 and 3 :: Auditions 3, 4 and 5

This week, So You Think You Can Dance wrapped up its  Season 8 auditions in three cities: Salt Lake City, New York City and Los Angeles. Episodes 2 and 3 aired on June 1, 2011 and June 2, 2011. Check out our recap right here in Kidzworld!

Audition #3: Salt Lake City

Robin Anton, creator of the Pussycat Dolls, joined the judging panel in Salt Lake City. After watching a couple of step dancers earn their way to the choreography round, we met 19-year-old Chyna Smith - a SYTYCD fanatic who name-dropped a number of former contestants. Her performance was solid, earning her a ticket to Las Vegas.

We also met Samantha Hiller, who is suffering from amnesia after hitting her head only three weeks ago. She may have forgotten that she loved SYTYCD, but she didn’t forget how to dance. Her performance landed her a spot in the choreography round.

Audition #4: New York City

In the Big Apple, we met some crazy characters with crazy talent. First up was Princess Lockeroo, whose style of dance was called “waacking.” Waacking involves a lot of arm spinning and moving to the beats and rhythms of the music. Her performance was unique enough to wow the judges and earn her a ticket to Vegas.

In New York, we also met the soft-yet-powerful contemporary dancer Brandon Jones, a world-champion Irish step dancer named Mary Kate Sheehan and an amazing Broadway dancer named Jess LeProtto. Then there was the cocky, outspoken krumper named Brian “Hollow Dreams” Henry, who put down Lil’ C and SYTYCD winner Russell before showing the judges what he was made of. Be careful what you say, Brian, or your dreams will never be more than hollow!

Audition #5: Los Angeles

In LA, the 18-year-old, self-proclaimed “nice girl” Jordan Casanova delivered a hot, hot, HOT performance to Naughty Girl by Beyonce. She was so hot that Nigel was afraid to comment in fear that he might look like inappropriate. Instead, he gave her a golden ticket.

Derion Chapman stunned the judges with his performance - not that they could define his routine as a certain style. But Mary Murphy said it was the most entertaining thing she’d ever seen (which was a total overstatement).

We also met SYTYCD winner Jeanine Mason’s little sister Alexis, a breakdancer that you would have sworn was a boy if her name wasn’t Patty Anne, and Hero McRae, another female breakdancer who arrived from Japan only four years ago. She knocked the judges’ socks off with both her English and her moves!

I dislike both. BUT, Miss Minaj is much more talented than Iggy. Nicki writes her own songs and had her own unique style. Iggy most likely has a ghost writer and copied Nicki`s unique style.
