Hey, we haven't had a "hilarious" bad audition yet, have we? Well, I suppose I'll allow this one. It's Paul Magliato, a 46-year-old bald guy who does what he calls "movement invention". It's terrible, obviously. Nigel asks if he wants an actual critique and accurately describes it as "not dancing." Paul acts like he's serious, then finally leaves. That was productive!
Now we get a brief clip of some bad dancing as an introduction to Tyce saying mean things to people. One person is apparently desperate and awful. Well, I have no problem believing that. The young lady with the bleached faux-hawk was apparently like nails on a chalkboard.
Last dancer! He believes everything has a reason, and that's why he (Kevin "K'Bez" Hunte) didn't get in back when he auditioned a few seasons ago. He's dancing to the same song as Gene Berston did, which I think is by the Black Eyed Peas. I only know it as "the song that goes 'Boom boom boom' that isn't by Flight of the Conchords". Mary is glad to see him back, and is concerned that he might not be strong enough. Nigel likes his popping. Tyce is a little angry that Kevin's been training in contemporary and didn't show any of that. Then he starts complaining about the backflip (there's always a backflip) and his head is moving side-to-side like he's Tyra or something. But Tyce still thinks he was great, which is an odd thing to say at the end of several minutes of weirdly enunciated insults. Anyway, K'Bez is through to choreography.
Same routine. They only have an hour to learn this stuff. K'Bez is through. Sexy Gene is through. Twenty-one other dancers we don't know anything about are also through. Next week: Joe R. takes us to Atlanta!
