This round of auditions starts off in Los Angeles, which is a departure from the norm, it usually ends there, or it's one of the last cities. I hope they don't make me fall in love with any dancer only to never show them again and then pick dancers for the Top 20 that we've never seen before. Adam Shankman is the guest judge.
Mollee Gray - Super cute girl who's been a dancer in all three High School Musicals. She just turned 18 and this was the first year she could try out.
Brief snippets of:
David HovhannisyanAmanda Kirby- she tried out last season and made it to Vegas, but was cut.
Ryan Kasprzak - (Evan's older brother who was the 21st, just missing out on the Top 20. Ugh, it still makes me mad that Tony Bellisimo made it over him) He does a very cool tap routine, a capella, and he even sings too. He was always my favorite of the brothers, so I'm very glad he's going to Vegas again. I just hope that America isn't tired of him because of Evan.
Bianca Revels- She wasn't going to try out again after getting cut last year, but she decided to give it one my try. I think that was a smart choice, because she really is a phenomenal tap dancer.
He and Bianca do a "tap off" that was pretty incredible, she does some pretty sick moves. It makes me want to break out my tap shoes and do a few time steps!
Amber Williams - Her mom was paralyzed in a freak accident during back surgery - she dances to a beautiful song that I'm going to download in minute, Always Midnight by Pat Monahan. She's a great dancer, I enjoyed watching her and she was so light on her feet, like she was floating across the floor.

Christina Santana- Salsa dancer, she's no Janette, but she's very cute and had some good moves, especially a nice spin. She's also a belly dancer, which of course Nigel loves and makes her do a little of.
Phillip Attmore - He's another ridiculously talented tap dancer and a great showman. I think he just might give Ryan a run for his tapping money! They know each other and tapped together when they were on tour in Fosse.
That's it, off to Glee!
