The Memphis auditions of the show SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, filmed in March at the Orpheum will air Wednesday on Fox at 7pm. Set your DVR accordingly! Maybe you'll see this guy..
An estimated 5,000 aspiring dance stars turned out for the first round of auditions at the Cadre Building. The next day a select few were invited back to perform for the show’s judges at the Orpheum for a chance to perform at a taping in Las Vegas. The Commercial Appeal reported that the show’s judges were disappointed with the talent level in Memphis. It will be interesting to see who made it through. On the day of the auditions, the producers shot about a half an hour of footage of an eclectic group showing their best moves across the street. A few of the girls demonstrated their flexibility on a passing horse carriage. I saw two guys dressed in swing dancing garb burst out of the Theatre, showing their “ticket” bibs to the camera, turning to run up Main Street and doing a heel click in unison. The show went to five other cities including Denver, Seattle, New York, Miami and Los Angeles.
Maybe there will be another local contestant to do our city proud !
