So You Think You Can Dance recap: Getting Waacky

Auditions in Los Angeles and Philadelphia bring out the funky, the waacky, and the very, very young
Ep. 03 | Aired Jun 11, 2014


J-4, 18.5 9: As Bachelorette Andi would say, "Stop." This child is perfection. When Nigel called Cyrus and Fik-Shun up on stage, I was a little worried that the poor kid wouldn't know what to do. Dancing with others is complicated, and what if Nigel had just ruined his plan? Needless to say, I was a mess. But then, J-4 and his bow tie KILLED it. His hashtag should've read #crushedit, because he was amazing. The way he played off of Fik-Shun and Cyrus and knew exactly what he was doing? This was definitely my favorite moment so far this season. Next stop: Meeting tWitch and warming the hearts of America: "My dream came true. This is the best day of my life."

Jourdan Epstein, 24: With a dance dedicated to her brother, who'd battled with addiction, Epstein was the most controlled dancer we'd seen tonight. She was so strong and so together, and all-around just captivating. Christina put it best when she said, "Forget about it. I can't."

After that audition, Mary was all fired up and ready to scream to her heart's content, which meant Epstein needed to get out of there ASAP. Next stop: Hollywood

Johnny "Waacks" Gibson, 22: He's baaack. After auditioning in season 9 and making Nigel laugh about "waacking," Gibson wanted to show the judges a more serious routine. Only, he'd have to wait until they stopped laughing. Sorry guys, but masturbation jokes never get old. And you're never too mature to laugh at them.

The routine itself was much better than last time. I found myself really enjoying how fierce the movement was. However, I can't be the only one who didn't like the way he held his face. He kept talking about how this routine was serious, but he looked like he wanted to smile the entire. time. Regardless, the judges thought he was an artist. Next stop: Choreography

Malene Ostergaard, 25 and Armen Way, 28: Armen, a.k.a. the super hot ballroom dancer who dropped his partner on her head last year, was back! And this time, he had a super hot new partner with him. Together, the two were too hot to handle. I was hooked from their first step. Their movements were sharp and precise. And those hips? Don't even get me started.

The judges were equally obsessed with both of the freakishly attractive and talented people. Next stop: Hollywood (Also, Armen's married?)

In choreography, Timothy decided to take the paramedic's advice and not compete further. Meanwhile, Johnny waacked his way through to Hollywood along with five others who would join 18 more dancers from day two L.A.
