Auditions: Miami/Memphis (or "Party in the Ring")
May 27

Can you believe my city is on "SO You Think YOu Can Dance?" Uh-huh. Along with Miami, my hometown is on tonight's show. Filled with a rich pro wrestling history, this city is known for its finest moments. Will they get funky like 2 COld Scorpio, or act sillt like The Brian Kendrick? The opening bell sounds and it's on.


Tyce Diorio joins the undeniable tag team of Nigel & Mary. Tony's up first and does all rubber band movements. After a cartwheel, he takes a tumble. The judges snap him out. Next up, Priscilla, who dealt with an injury at age 15. To celebrate life, she does a modern ballet dance. The judges send her off to Vegas. Janette & Romulo get revenge after what happened last season. After a salsa, Mary called it sexy & strong. They fire themselves up for Las Vegas. Here's a set of twins named Jennifer & Jessica. With a bad hip-hop routine, Nigel called it a nightmare. That was a twin killing for both of them. The afternoon wore on with very bad dancers and Joseph breaks the streak by doing a hip-hop number. The judges say it's round 2. Since the round began, Lauren was taught a routine, and Joseph got a ticket to Vegas along with those who made it.


Kicking things off, a lady named Wislande who does a strange routine. Strange means it's "rejected." She gets a reality check. Even the dancers got their own reality checks. All of them bounced. Erik is up next and does a tap dance to "Thriller." BTW, his nickname is "Silky." The judges give him a smooth run to Vegas. A former Miss Washington, Paris is up next and did a routine with a modern twist. They send her to Vegas. Not Paris, VEGAS!!!! Thank you for that. With more contemporary routines on the way, Geo is next and he does an African Dance. The one highlight was jumping onto the judges table. Don't break yourself. That'll send him to round 2 in a good way. Talia lost her husband in a motorcycle accident, but regains it with a hip-hop/jazz routine. That'll give her momentum to the next round. It began at that time, considering why you watch TV where several dancers including Geo and Talia got to Vegas in a hurry. Now we move a little up north to my hometown.


Lil' C joins in the three-way dance for the judges, and no, The Big Boss Man came out of the grave to join this, it's actually a police officer named Marico, who does a style entitled "Memphis juking." He scores to Vegas. And if he wanted to serve hard time when he's not dancing, he's eyeing his next victim Dustin, whose cousin is Howie from the Backstreet Boys. With a funny routine, he's should've respected the law & order, so he's off to the clink for that. Chris calls his style electric, but he's having a rave party....looks like he short circuited it, so he's unplugged. We get a tutorial on how well you can audition for the show, and a few people isn't one of them. Maybe Caitlin can try to do good here. Earlier in the broadcast, her sister auditioned in Miami and made it to Vegas. Now, it's her turn. With a modern ballet routine, she's joining her sister to Vegas. Talk about a family reunion. Round 2 came and some dancers came to Vegas, but the ones you see on the screen aren't going.


Anna's dad comitted suicide last year, but she decided to pick up the pieces through dancing. Here, we see a modern routine and the judges like her somewhat, but is sent to the next round. Another round 2 candidate is Travis, whose dad is a football coach. With a contemporary routine, the judges get the field goal on him instead of Six. Evan & Ryan are brothers, and here Evan did the routine done by his brother and he's off to Vegas in a sweep. we'll get to Ryan later, just after we see twins named Lauren & Lydia. Earlier, a set of twins did badly, this time another set did better than the first. With them going to round 2, it looks like Lauren & Lydia would be the clear winners if a dance contest was held. Ryan waited longer in the waiting room and does a silly tap routine. But it was serious for him to go to Vegas! Lauren & Lydia are plotting to join them in the act, but in order to do that, they must do a choreographed routine. Guess what? They did! Along with a few others.

The final bell tolls and it's all over. Next week should be the Vegas episode, and in this Royal Rumble, it's all about the top 20 in this Survivor Series of routines. The public votes on Judgment Day, ending 2 dancers every week in a Backlash, but tomorrow, we go to where Wrestlemania used to have it, Los Angeles, and Seattle. We'll see you tomorrow on the Summerslam known as "So You Think You Can Dance."
