OMG! Eliana Girard took the stage and gave us an unforgettable performance on last night auditions of So You Think You Can Dance. I think we have a winner as long as she doesn’t break during Vegas week.
A former “pole aerialist” for Cirque du Soleil, Girard combined classical ballet training with the kinds of moves many men only see during bachelor parties. It was a unique, impressive audition and I loved every second of it. Nigel Lythgoe tweeted later by calling Eliana a “pole dancing ballerina”.
“I already love you so much,” said Ferguson. “You have a quality Melanie had last year. She could just draw you in by just being. It was in her pores. You’ve got it.”
In case you missed it here is Eliana’s audition below.
I am truly inspired. She will go far.
