This is it, people, the very last audition
city in Atlanta. We've hit 4 cities where hopefuls have made their way
to Hollywood and the city known for cable TV innovations will make
dancing innovations on their own. Lil' Buck will join the panel, so
Mariah Reives is first off and she did an outstanding jazz routine. It
wowed the judges and that took her to Hollywood. Also going was Eric
"Silky" Moore. Despite wearing a t-shirt and a couple of false starts to
the routine, he finally got it going. Boy, he didn't quit. Joining those
2 were Kelly Maccoy. Her jazz routine went a bit too far and her
hysterical back falls took her to the west coast anyway.
Chris Griffin from the Dragon House crew went in and did the job for
him. That was the one that went to Hollywood. Conrad Decharbert was
next. Last year, the judges wanted more masculine in his routine. This
year, he decided to be a man and it went to Hollywood in one feel swoop.
Next is Taveus Woods. best friend of last year's winner Fik-Shun, this
Las Vegas street performer had an early hat fall, but it recovered just
in time. It might be a round 2 berth for him. Branden Feimster may be on
the show to have an attitude of his own. The controversy amd friction of
his dancing got him nowhere. Out the door he goes. So did the ones in
round 2 where 12 got in with a golden ticket. Boy, they got out with
Jenna Dewan Tatum joined in place of Lil' Buck and Ricky Ubeda kicked
off the auditions. With a contemporary piece, it was good enough to send
him to Hollywood. Next was Marissa Milele. No wonder Nigel called her
the beast of this season. Her ferocious moments sent her to Hollywood in
a hurry. Elaine Kimble is next. Her mom had a stroke a decade ago and
didn't tell she was going to audition, but she did, however and it was
off to round 2 for her. Brandon Jacobs did something we never seen
before: Cranking. Despute the dancing ability, he cranks the capacity to
round 2. Angelina Granitz came up and her routine was a little slow &
boring. The judges did speed her up by sending her to Hollywood. Next
was Cristina Moya-palacios. She started dancing by the time her younger
brother was sick and her dancing was so impressive, she took her to
Hollywood. Last up, Jerrod Swain, who did some more cranking of his own
and it would be a ticket to round 2.
With 32 in the next level, 9 dancers were only cranked out while the
rest went to a sudden halt.
Next week, Hollywood week. A hell week where the survivors make up a big
dacning bootcamp to see who would be cut day after day. We hope you
won't miss that. Bye for now.
