In Charleston auditions there was this identical twins, Anthony and Antwain. They were about same height, same weight, and have the same face. When Anthony danced first, it wasn’t impressive and the judges all gave an “no”. Then his brother Antwain danced. The judges thought it was terrific, and talked to Antwain about why who then said he thought his brother was a “cleaner dancer” than he was and deserved to be here more. Nigel summoned Anthony back to the stage and asked to see them dance together. Boy what a decision that was. The twins gave an energetic, totally-in-sync-from-start-to-finish performance where Anthony suddenly turned to a totally different dancer. He was quick, sharp and every bit as good as his brother. All the judges were wowed and gave both of them the green light to the choreography round (where both then went on to win the ticket to Vegas). What an interesting turn of events. Talk about second chance.
Claire Calloway’s comeback performance didn’t impress. The choreography wasn’t there. I guess it’s hard to keep up the high level when you’ve spent most of the two years having/nursing a baby, but I’m glad she made through the choreography and moved on.
In DC auditions as soon as they showed the clip of Brandon Bryant lying about his age on season 1 auditions, when he was actually only 15 back then, I had the gut feeling this must be someone really good. The judges thought he was one of the best they’ve seen this year and sent him straight to Vegas. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see him again after that.
