So You Think You Can Dance: Season 9, Episode 1: Auditions 1 & 2

May 25, 2012

This week on So You Think You Can Dance (Season 9, Episode 1), the judges kicked off their audition tour in New York and Dallas. Read Kidzworld’s recap of the “Audition 1 & 2,” which aired on May 24, 2012, to discover what you missed.

NY and Dallas

Judges Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy are back for the ninth season of So You Think You Can Dance, along with different co-judges in each city they visit. New York and Dallas were both packed with so much talent that the show wasted little time on uncoordinated or attention-seeking “dancers.”

Flappers and Aussies

First up was 18-year-old Amelia Lowe, who’s obsessed with the 1920s flapper style and silent films. She earned a standing ovation from the judges right out of the gate for her dance moves and character look. The judges also met 23-year-old Australian Daniel Baker, who became a ballet dancer just to get a sponsored Visa to come to America.

Family Tales

The family stories were touching this episode. Leo Reyes learned that life is too short to waste time when his mother attempted suicide. Now he puts his all into dance. Ballet dancer Jarell Rochelle's mom is going blind. He wants to do something amazing with his dancing skills before the inevitable happens. And finally, mom of two Bree Hafen showed her kids, who sat at the judges panel with Nigel, what she can do. Being 29, this is Bree’s first and only chance to shine in SYTYCD.

Creepy...In A Good Way

While all the other auditions were great, it was the break dancers who stole the show this week, particularly Stepheon Stewart and Hampton Williams. Both of them had strange inspirations, but hey, it worked for them. Stepheon drew inspiration from horror films and gave a creepy but entertaining audition. Hampton claimed he could provide “soul cleansing” through his dance, which freaked Nigel out at first. But Hampton’s performance brought Mary to tears and the entire audience to its feet.
