7 "Wow" Moments From Last Year's "SYTYCD" Auditions

May 2, 2019

Season 16
of “So You Think You Can Dance” is almost here and we are SO. EXCITED. While we wait for the new season to roll around (it premieres Monday, June 12!), we figured we’d reminisce about some of the most iconic auditions from last year. And…cue music!

Jay Jackson (aka Laganja Estranja)

Of course we have to start this this list off with Miss Estranja, honey darling! Okurrrr! Seriously, this performance put the biggest smile on our faces.

Bridget Derville-Teer

We were literally saying “what?!” throughout Bridget Derville-Teer’s entire audition. The eerie darkness she brought to her routine was so intriguing.

Hannahlei Cabanilla

The fluidity, the control, the flexibility—Hannahlei’s jaw-droppingly beautiful audition was a fitting first step on her path to the Season 15 title.

Ryan “Opium” Green

He called this style of dance “visual intoxication,” and that’s pretty much the best way to describe it! We still stan.

Eddie Hoyt

Imagine having as much talent as the tap-tastic Eddie Hoyt. CANNOT. RELATE.

Emily Carr

Emily Carr has SO much control during this audition routine. It’s truly incredible to watch.

Dustin Payne

We’ll never forget the moment we were introduced to Dustin Payne, future dance legend. And we’re sure we’re not the only one who felt hardcore jealous watching his audition.
