Reggie Rolle just wants to dance, and he's not afraid to show it. If you squint just right, it's almost like Travis is up there. Travis! I miss you! Come back!
Greg Treco, twenty -- the boy from Great America that had to "perform" last week -- is performing his heart out today. He holds his head and waves his arm as his legs do the funky chicken and he's trying his best to have every single limb do different performances at once. Cut to a shot of PseudoTravis laughing at him, but I'm sure they just edited it to look that way. Then the best part is when Missy shouts, "IS THAT YOUR CHICK?" Greg stares up all like, "What, woman? Why you bustin' in my science?"
Angel Ortiz, nineteen, from Long Island, is the blue-pants girl who wanted everyone to do the Go 'head Circle earlier. The narrator explains to us that Angel's got tons of dance experience. He's only telling us that because you can't really tell here that there's anything special about her, and she must make it to L.A. and they want us to care about her. In a split-screen, she eats pizza, telling us that it's nerve-wracking freestyling in front of the judges like this. She gets disqualified for eating food in front of the camera.
Angela Peel is the pretty girl who gave birth three weeks ago. She dances, and in a split-screen we see her all exhausted with the new kid. She explains to us that she basically sat on her ass for nine months waiting for some damn kid to be born, ready to ruin her life, "in chill mode and everything," and now she gets to get up and dance, so it's crazy because she's dancing, and not sitting down rocking her kid to sleep. Does anyone think that the powers that be would let a new teen mom be in a pop group? She's pretty and all, but those tattoos and that kid mean she's either got to go be the new Lil' Kim, or she'll have to wait a few years before she can be on a tour as a backup singer for someone else. Angela's dance style is to hold the waistband of her pants up as she rocks her ass back and forth until you're hypnotized like a snake. That's also just how she got pregnant, by the way.
The narrator tells us that Jahzeel Mumford is "counting on his dance talent" to get him another callback. And that's different from everyone else how, exactly? In a split-screen, Jahzeel tells us that two weeks ago he was watching the first-season Popstars reruns, and now he's at a callback in D.C. Wait. They showed reruns of Popstars? Where? When? Why? Jahzeel says to just "do your thing." His thing consists of jerky dance moves that look like invisible people are pulling on his head, trying to get him to enter another dimension.
