Sent to choreography.

Tucker auditioned for Julliard and made it then he had a car accident and broke his back. When his father came on the scene his car was on fire. It didn’t look like he’d be able to walk for awhile. He fought back so he could dance, again. Mary his dancing breathtaking. Wayne says he’s jealous of what God gave him and he’s a perfect dancer. Nigel asks if there’s any lingering injuries and if he gets frightened in car, before giving him the golden ticket to Vegas.

Now a montage of the really bad dancers who auditioned. When they got rejected, some wouldn’t face reality.

Shanshan doing a traditional Mongolian bowl dance, but she really drops them a lot. Everyone thinks she’s saying whore’s milk instead of horse’s milk. The dress she dances in is really beautiful.

Wayne happy seeing another culture’s dance. Nigel sends her to choreography.

She’s a contemporary dancer. Nigel thought she was superb. Mary says she’s striking. Wayne says watching her dance was like watching Beyonce and Destiny’s child singing the song she was dancing to. They play with her saying no to choreography before revealing she’s going to Vegas.

No Memphis dances auditioning. All are out-of-towners. Paige’s father is an Elvis impersonator. She’s from Detroit, Michigan. Dad thrilled to be in Memphis. Dad will come to Vegas if she makes it that far. She’s trained in all types of dances. Nigel gets Dad to sing for them. Nigel does a bad Elvis impersonation. Nigel says she’s a good dancer, but needs that magical piece to put in. Mary says she needs to connect. Wayne says it didn’t work for him. She gets sent to choreography.

Now it’s time for choreography. Larry withdraws from competition so his partner won’t suffer as he’s having problem with choreography. Isabelle the salsa dancer gets sent home. Paige doesn’t make it, either.

      Tucker’s story was great and I like that he didn’t try to hype up how hard he worked and how difficult it was. He was humble and I’m sure the producers wanted to feature him because of his parents writing ahead. Well, I rarely have time on Tuesdays to watch TV at night, since I work at my job at DISH those evenings, so my wife and I use my recording on our DISH Hopper DVR to watch SYTYCD on Wednesday. It records all of our favorite FOX shows each night during primetime hours though, so we have more flexibility and never miss a show that we like.
