Dude, I can’t believe I spaced out on the season premiere of So You Think You Can Dance. I caught the tail end of the second half of it tonight, with the LA leg of the auditions. The judges went gaga over a girl with bad technique, dance competition-esque fake smile and awkward choreography. I enjoyed the latin ballroom couple, and the guy who popped and locked was ridiculous.

I kind of wish something felt different from previous seasons, but the judges are the same and are acting the same. Mary’s laugh entertained me for two seasons, and now it’s just plain annoying. I’m looking forward to getting to the top 20. I always find the audition process relatively annoying.
