Back from commercial we go right into the routine of a dancer named Anthony who has amazing control and extension, and Nigel loves him. He's followed by a girl named Megan who is performing a contemporary routine to the normal female, aching, acoustic song but whose moves are just beautiful and flowing. Both are sent right to Vegas. Then we see a dancer called Edward, who tried out in season six, and he tells us that that was the first time his father ever saw him dance. He's super sweet, and as adorable as a bag of kittens! Kittens with zero body fat, that is. He's a ballerina and his movement is INSANE. This is where I am horrible at describing the movement, but basically he makes everything look effortless but he's clearly crazy strong. He manages to just exude a joy of dance while he moves. I'm not surprised to hear that he's in a pre-professional program with Alvin Ailey, and he then tells Nigel that his relationship with his dad, who never used to support him, has totally gotten better and grown since he got a chance to see him dance at the last audition. Mia tells him he's matured, and Adam adds to the love, but interestingly he just gets sent to choreography rather than straight to Vegas.
Only one dancer is left in New York, and her name is Megan, an 18-year-old dance major. She's a very curvy girl and says that she's been totally inspired by Mia Michaels since she made a career out of dance even without the typical slim little dancer body. Megan is a contemporary dancer, and her movements are beautiful -- both Mia and Adam are already crying only a few moments in to her routine. Adam congratulates her on blowing stereotypes out of the water and to his credit admits he can have those stereotypes and she totally just "schooled [him]." Mia tells her, "You make me so happy to be a woman of size." She cries as she tells Megan that she was told she'd never be a dancer because of her body, and she loves dancers for their spirit rather than their size and shape. Nigel is here to be the killjoy, and tells her that the reality is that she'll have a hard time finding jobs, but points out that Mia did too (Mia adds that she got, in fact, zero jobs) but that was what then sent her on the path to become a choreographer. They decide to send Megan to choreography to see how she fares, and she, Wadi and Edward are the three that we know who will be doing the routine -- Megan definitely struggled a little bit but I thought Wadi did quite well, and I'm surprised when both of them are dismissed. Edward, though, makes it on to Vegas (unsurprisingly) along with fifteen others that we haven't yet met.
