Auditioning for SYTYCD Multiple Times

I’ve been meaning to post this for a while, but it’s become even more interesting now that so many wonderful dancers just got kicked off So You Think You Can Dance. No doubt a ton of really really great dancers got sent home. So, it begs the question of whether people should be allowed to audition for So You Think You Can Dance multiple times.

To round out the discussion, you have to remember that rules about auditioning multiple times would apply to crappy dancers like “Sex” and Leo as much as great dancers like Natalie Reid and Paula Van Oppen. On the one hand, I like the storylines of people trying over and over again and finally achieving their dream. I loved when Twitch game back and finally made it. However, I’d be happy to never see Sex on the show again.

It’s funny, because after Leo and Sex battled it out on SYTYCD, I found Leo’s twitter account and sent him a couple messages and he replied. I asked him if he was going to audition again. He said he might, but he’d have to travel to LA to do it. I told him he had to audition again, he needed to pull out a few more spins. He then told me that he could do even more spins on roller blades. I of course then suggested that he take his rollerblades to the next audition. Can you imagine?

Anyway, I guess I have some mixed feelings about multiple auditions. On the one hand I like to see someone living their dream. On the other, I like to see fresh faces and to see new talent on the show. At the end of the day, the dancing and choreography is so amazing I’m not sure all the rest really matters all that much. Although, it’s a good topic for discussion in between episodes.
