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

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

So You Think You Can Dance makes its next stop in Los Angeles. In the town full of glitz and glamour and so much attitude, the L.A. audition did not disappoint. Our two clear favorites were Eliana Girard, the pole dancing ballerina and Cole Horibe, the contemporary martial artist dancer. However, the show stoppers were James and Nick Aragon aka the NInJA Twins. Even guest judge, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, lauded at how entertaining the twins were as if it was rehearsed. The 32-year old twins made the judges laugh in delight at their stories but could not transcend into a ticket to Vegas due to being too old. That's right, 32 is too old to qualify into the competition. They may not have made it on this reality show but these guys deserve one of their own. Bravo, make it happen! In the mean time, enjoy these videos!

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

The So You Think You Can Dance Dallas auditions brought out what it is meant to be in the Lone Star state - Everything is BIGGGER in Texas. The jumps, leaps and emotions ran high during these auditions. Two of our favorites were Australian ballet dancer, Daniel Baker, and 29-year old contemporary dancer/mommy, Bree Hafen. Daniel is an explosive dancer with excellent technique. His accent can melt votes. Bree Hafen is a good contemporary dancer but her audition will bring you to tears. Even watching it again, I am sobbing like a hot mess.

As we head into Vegas week on So You Think You Can Dance, we wanted to share with you guys our favorite auditions from each of the cities that the show went to. We've included our prediction on weather we think they will make Top 20 or not. We'll start with the New York auditions where many of the New York's finest dancers came and brought their A-game, yes A for the Big Apple. Amelia Lowe captured the judges' hearts before her first leap with her flapper obsession. Cheyon Wespi-Tschopp from Switzerland is a ballet dancer who has really powerful legs and a mean toe point that can kick anyone in his way.
