So You Think You Can Dance – Season 9 Episode 3 (Atlanta)
Another week of auditions brings Natalie and I to Atlanta with all of you. Debbie Allen is our guest judge. Let’s hope they get as good a batch of contestants as they did last year. Will Atlanta produce another winner? Only time will tell but let’s find out how everyone does this season.
Vegas!! Right off the bat she’s a girl with some “different” talents. We like it. Totally put a smile on Natalie’s face. It even got a standing ovation from the judges.
Vegas!! He’s performing this kinda cool robot marionette thing. Very different. To me he has good musicality. I kinda dig it. I’d love to see if he’s got the versatility. With all the praise he just got I feel good about it.
Vegas!! He picked some good music but his choreography is not in tune with the music. He’s too big and wild, flailing everywhere. His dancing is not expressive of the music. He looks like he knows what he’s doing though. We think this will hurt him. We are a little confused by straight ticket.
Lot’s of Vegas tickets in the montage. Looks like the judges are loving hotlanta.
Vegas!!! This martial arts master is putting himself out there with some hip-hop, breaking and martial arts. We like it. I’m loving the combination. The Maroon 5 music choice totally makes it even better. He can move so well and I’m impressed. They made him do some ballet after he admitted a whole seven days. Now it wasn’t the most classical ballet, but it was the most entertaining performance. I think he can learn and he’s got the charisma to take it far.
Choreography. Natalie doesn’t like it. It went way too fast for me to even judge. He has some moves. We’re not that impressed. Do you know the wobble?
Choreography. As a man I may be a little partial to belly dancing so take everything I say with a grain of salt. She can totally move and it is very showy. She was good. Let’s see how she does in choreography.
Vegas!! She should get to Vegas just on her love of bacon. We’re both indifferent toward the performance. It was a bit weird. No surprise they put her through to see where she goes.
Vegas!!! He was going for a new style and I think he may be on to something. Like his friend Boris from before he has the whole robot thing going on. I think he was better. It was ridiculous!
Cyrus “Glitch” Spencer
Vegas!! He starts with a little bit of a deficit because he’s the third roommate with the same style of dance. He’s got it though and it’s different enough in my eyes to make an impression. He seems to have a bit more grace and moves a little bit less mechanical in some moves. And what a dance face – he has more personality than them as well. Nice, very nice. Totally topped his friends. Awesome.
Belly dancer and martial artist made it to Vegas!!
Vegas!! Epic music choice. Goes very well with her technique and she’s got the talent too. I saw some great musicality. Grandma thought it was beautiful and I agree. Natalie thinks she should have done choreography, her dancing was good but raw.
Vegas!! We like him. He’s got good personality. He must have a lot of free time on his hands up in Franklin County, VA to practice. This routine looks very polished. Great performance.
George Lawrence II
Vegas!! Beautiful, graceful, strong, talented. George is a winning athlete and he’s certainly a winning dancer.
Time for a dud montage. It is a guilty pleasure seeing all these but I think I rather see spectacular dancing.
Choreography. She’s very alluring. It wouldn’t surprise me if she was a cheerleader from those moves.
Damon and Deon
Choreography. They’re trying to recover from last year’s “scandal” with some original performance. Not bad in my opinion. Got a standing O from the audience.
Brittany and Damon made it!!
Atlanta had some great dancing. Lots of Vegas dancers! Next week in Salt Lake City. See you then.Tags: fox, review, Season 9, So You Think You Can Dance, SYTYCD
