    tanique33 Says:

    ugh, danny needs to get a grip. i was not diggin his vibe at all. my favorite one is the “weird”guy mia loved.

    my favorite girl is the one who said she’s getting too old. this should be a good season.

    SkankyHO Says:

    I can’t believe they didn’t ask back that one girl whose name I can’t remember. But she was one of the last girls to be cut and she was an amazing dancer.

    Anna Says:

    No the clogger’s name was Brandon something. When is this show on? I keep missing it.

    Josh Says:

    I really hate Lacey.

    wehomo Says:

    SkankyHO, that was Caitlin. I thought she was amazing too, couldn’t believe they cut her. I wanted to root for Lacey because I have worked with her brother and I do adore him, but she is so offputting!

    KamsAWESOME Says:

    Woo hoo! Go Kameron! He’s actually 21 years old, he just had a birthday.

    emilie Says:

    My favorite is Pasha!

    Meena Says:

    Yes, leaving Caitlin out is a travesty. She was one of the best dancers. I think perhaps she lacked personality which is what viewers latch on to.

    Rfed Says:

    Pasha! He is so cute!

    Natalie Says:

    Hok is probably my favorite of that group, but all the people I liked the most have been kicked off already! Sucks =(

    I think siblings of contestants should not be allowed to audition, or at least not bring their siblings w/ them. Benji’s sister talked about Benji the ENTIRE audition and used him as her dance partner. Its unfair for her to have that advantage.

  13. 13
    Natalie Says:

    The clogger was the best!! Why did they kick him off?

  14. 14
    Christa Says:

    Wow, Faina is SEXY in a very slick, model-like way. Anya is too much for me though; maybe it’s just the picture.

    DD Says:

    Go to Youtube and do a search on “Hyperballad lyrical solo”. It’s Shauna Noland. Incredible dancer.

    DD Says:

    Better add “Noland” to the “Hyperballad lyrical solo” search…there are a few of them out there now.

    Svetlana Says:

    My favorite is Lacey!
