First up, Erica Gee. She doesn't look like a crazy, but this is her third time auditioning for this show, so clearly she's delusional and not good enough. Will these people never learn? Ugh and she goes on and on about how many auditions she goes on, but blames nerves for her previous failures in front of the judges. Likely story. Eh, she seems like a pretty enough girl and a decent dancer, just not really original. She's apparently less flamboyant than last year. However, the judges are glad she came back. More talk about her journey. Good God, stop talking. Why do these contestants feel the need to converse with the judges. Just accept the compliment, smile and take your ticket to Vegas.
Ballroom dancers Leonidas and Aliona say they are like the same person. Actually, Aliona does all the talking, Leonidas just looks dumbfounded and nods. I don't like their interview, but I like the way they move. Nigel says that it is on his "hot tamale trolley car." Mary gives her first "Woo!" of the season. They get two tickets to paradise.
Randy Lewis is an atrocious street dancer, but I dig his homemade "So I Think I Can Dance" tee. Edwin does an unattractive butt wobble then falls down dead, nope... he's getting up, laying on the ground still and unmoving was part of the routine. Mia says he "lacked a little energy." Good line, Mia -- she's had a bit less wine before today's round of auditions, it seems. Victor does some wild break-dancing moves, he's high energy and fun. I like him...even when he sits in the audience and pretends to praise himself. Entertaining. Mia asks, "You're a goofball, right?" Master of the obvious. He goes to the holding pen.
Dominic from last season does his best Cat Deeley impression. Love him. Gold Inferno is back. NO! I beg of you editors. Stop the madness. If you are going to show us freaks, show us new freaks. Instead it is the masked man with his patented jump style. He claims to be doing this for his fans. Fans? Really? I demand to know who these people are. Nigel stops him. But just to tell him to keep his head up and smile. They let him go on... and on... and on... Nigel does have some good lines about how Gold Inferno used to be 480 pounds before jump style, and how it's easy because you don't have to wear makeup. Mia sits in stunned silence. Nigel says he would have sent him through to Vegas, but the mean girls said no. Sad music plays. I'm crying because my favorite show is massively disappointing me right now.
