Didn't agree with some of the "straight to Vegas" solos, but what do I know . We'll see if they survive that.
Really really REALLY could have done without the repeated showings of the knee dislocation . Yuck yuck yuck! Disturbing. I don't see how she will tolerate the demands of the training, rehearsals, and performances if she pops apart so easily.
Obviously we aren't privy to everything the judges see and it is "edited for television impact", but I find it odd that the Latin dancers are IMO throwing out the same typical recycled Cha routine (cue J.Lo music...) and getting tickets to Vegas. No "let's see what else you can do". Theoretically I bet if you worked intensely and exclusively on a Cha sequence for the audition for a few weeks/months, it'd be stellar. But that doesn't make you a *dancer*, really.
Theoretically, maybe it stellar, but not if you're not that good to begin with.
Of course, there isn't weeks/months to practice during Vegas week, so that's where the rubber meets the road for most of the one trick ponies that got a Vegas ticket.
Not to be negative on those "one trick pony". I love the audition shows in spite of their somewhat frustrating nature because there are some dancers that do an amazing routine in audition and then disappear, for whatever reason.
