It‘s fair to say that when most Americans think "dance" they think ... Milwaukee? Well, that was where "So You Think You Can Dance?" made its final stop in the auditions for the 2008 season before heading to Las Vegas for the second round. Who knows what the famous beer brewing city could produce? "Laverne & Shirley‘s" Milwaukee-based skipping down the street was pretty catchy...After an opening montage that showed judge Nigel Lythgoe having pretty bizarre reactions to hip hop dancers throughout the audition process, it was time to get down to business. Sort of. It seemed like the producers had a little extra time to kill, so they offered up auditions from previous cities that they hadn‘t shown before.The first was Michael Kim, who auditioned in Washington, D.C., and popped his way to Vegas, where his fate was sealed in Season 2 after failing to make the mark in the samba. Next up were a couple of roommates in the Los Angeles audition. Katee Shean, the first of the duo, made it to Vegas. Her friend, Natalie Reid, got through, too. In D.C., a salsa dancing couple, Janette Manrara and Romulo Villaverde brought the crowd to its feet with some very impressive dips and lifts. But it was only good enough to get them to the choreography round. Janette faced the judges first, and got a ticket to Vegas. Romulo, not so much.
