Then for some reason we get a little collage of Sonya enjoying the auditions. She says she wants to throw daisies and sunflowers at one particular dancer. She hugs herself. She talks about wanting to have children like this. She says "Oh my god," a lot. Nigel annoyingly tells her at one point, "It's only dancing, woman."
The auditions are going well, and then there's ballroom dancer Misha Belfer, 26, from Denver, waiting for his partner ... wait for it ... Mitch, 26, also of Denver, who's wearing an identical costume. Just to make sure we understand, the camera zooms in on the Men sign on the bathroom that Mitch just exited. Mitch and Misha tell us that they participate in same-sex ballroom dancing, while the show gays it up as much as it is possible by playing "It's Raining Men" underneath it all. Mitch is straight, while Misha is gay. Mitch admits that kind of was awkward at first, but it's really all about "bring[ing] the dancing through." The two of them are of the opinion that this will be the most masculine dance ever because it's two men dancing. Well, it beats slamming your body into other dudes at a Henry Rollins show, I suppose.
They seem pretty good, and the judges look like they're enjoying it, although that could just as easily be the novelty factor. Unfortunately, when one of them tries to swing the other around, they crash to the floor. "I don't really know what to say," says Nigel, who compares it to watching Will Ferrell in Blades of Glory. He says their style was good, but he worries about them alienating his audience. Nigel, it's So You Think You Can Dance, not So You Think You Can NASCAR. He admits to enjoying guys being guys and girls being girls on the stage, since he's being honest. Nigel Lythgoe, champion of the Never Gay At All art form known as dancing, everyone. Mary admits to being confused, since she found it hard to judge their style since they kept switching who was doing the traditionally male and female parts. Sonya says a bunch of things and I'm not sure what her point is, but she was confused too, although she thought they were amazing. Nigel (as well as the other two judges) want to see them both dancing with girls in the choreography round, which is where they go with 22 other dancers.
