It’s here guys, the end of the auditions. The sun set in Salt Lake City. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, we’ve been amazed, and now that drama has come to an end. NOT. The auditions may be over, but Vegas (or as the lucky hopefuls would put it, “VEGAAAAAS!”) is just around the corner and judging from the promos, Cat may be right in saying this will be the most dramatic Vegas week ever.
But until then, we’ll revel in the last of this season’s auditions and guest judge Adam Shankman’s theatrics. Here is the good, the bad, and the just plain wacky from the Salt Lake City auditions!
1) Whitney Carson
This girl is so young she still has braces, but her dancing is definitely not immature. There’s been a severe lack of female ballroom dancers this season, and this girl brought the heat! She reminded me of a younger Chelsie Hightower from season four. She’s young and certainly has much to learn, but has a lot of potential. Just maybe tone down the cleavage next time, I thought her partner was gonna lose an eye!
2) Lynn Gravatt
A former aerospace engineer who left the world of science and innovation to follow her three spirit guides was crazy in the best possible way. Two words: bath salts? But all joking aside, her dancing was too spastic to warrant her moving on in the competition. But as Mary Murphy pointed out, she looks happy and that’s all that matters, right? And Gravatt did have the positive message of saying that you’re life doesn’t end at 30 and you can start over whenever you would like. For a group of dancers with careers that will likely be short-lived, this is some good advice to follow.
