SYTYCD S7 Dallas/Nashville Auditions + Vegas Week Music

Considering how great the Season 7 music has already been, I’m super excited to see what tonight’s packed episode brings. I think Vegas Week is going to be even more intense than ever before, this season, so that should be interested.

As always, I’ll update this list as the show happens and I would appreciate any help y’all might provide. We’ve got the smartest readers/commenters on the Internet, in my opinion, so it’s always a pleasure to see the list firm up with all of your help.

Here we go…
