[WATCH] SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE - SEASON 9 - ATLANTA AUDITIONS

[WATCH] SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE - SEASON 9 - ATLANTA AUDITIONS

The So You Think You Can Dance auditions move to Atlanta, "Hot-lanta" Georgia. season 8 winner, Melanie Moore, got her ticket straight to Vegas here and later of course the bragging rights as America's favorite dancer. Hot-lanta proved that there's more talent to be shown and we saw quite a few we loved. Meet Asher Walker, the "redneck" who studied hip hop watching videos online with aspirations of being a back up dancer for Justin Bieber. Asher demonstrated a dance move that Debbie Allen later coined as a "hip hop coupe." He could be the Kent Boyd of season 9. Also meet Courtney Kirby, who brought her grandmother who was a former jazz/ballet dancer. Nigel invited her to sit between him and Mary Murphy who had quite a grip on Mary's hand with every leap and jump from Courtney. Our Hot-lanta honorable mention goes to Tim Conkel, the hip hop karate instructor with a Selena Gomez backpack. I think what really impressed me the most about this kid was how quick he could move. He may not have the svelt body of a dancer but sure has the stealth of one. Check out their auditions and you'll see why we really love these guys.
