I loved the openning of the show with dancing mantages on the building of Vegas was really cool. With that said Vegas week is by far the toughest part of the SYTYCD audition process. There is a reason it is called hell week. Joining Nigel and Mary at the Judging table were Adam Shankman, Debbie Allen, Tyce Diorio, Robin Antin, and Jason Gilkinson (who filled in for Adam during a round). Also I was tweeting along with the show and sometimes miss some details…lol I’m the type that has to take notes so I don’t forget.
Round One Solos: The judges wasted no time getting to the point starting the first of two solo rounds. They cut 46 dancers from that round alone.
Round Two a NappyTabs hip hop: They challenged the dancers with an intricate and fast routine. Hiro, Patty Ann Miller, Kristin Dobson, Princess Lockeroo and the irish dancer Mary Kate Sheean…were among the dancers that got cut during the Hip Hop round. The first of many shocking eliminations.
Round Three Broadway with Tyce: Loved the routine and the song. I would love to see it on the live show. Tyce was great describing the character for the girls but I think he left the guys a little bit confused as for what there character was.
Round Four Ballroom with Jason: Jason chose to challege the dancers with the Jive. I was amused by all the girls getting really excited to take off their shoes. The Jive is no joke and I bet their feet and legs felt like they were gonna fall off.
Round Five Groups: I was quite impressed with the group round. There wasn’t much drama at all just one little break down with Arielle’s group. The Judges were impress too because they only cut 7.
Round Six Contemporary with Travis Wall: Joining Travis was Robert and Jamie. Looks like Mia has passed this round to Travis. Love seeing his work on the show. During this round the two favorites were lost Arielle Coker (who looked just as confused as I did) and Alexis Mason (who had to dance for her life).
Final Round: The final solo round for the dancers to prove that they are worthy of being in the top 20.
Looking forward to the Green Mile tomorrow night and we will finally know this seasons top 20
