    High School Musical connections abound! Sabra Johnson, Allison Holker, Jaymz, that girl who was a famous choreographer's daughter...

    His name reminds me of Shayne from the Bachelor... other than that, I don't really have any opinion on him. I can't wait to "meet" these unknowns on Wednesday!

    Speaking of the famous choreographer's daughter, did she make it to the top 20?

    No, she didn't make the top 20, and it surprised the heck out of me when someone like Susie Garcia did. I liked Kelli, she was a good dancer.

    Thayne kind of looks like Benji a little bit. Oh how I loved Benji during season 2!

    He is the one that they showed a second of his audition tape and I didn't even catch his name, kept wondering who he was and then I finally figured it out. I liked his audition, hope he does well in the other styles.

    Doesn't Odyssey Dance Theatre have 5 or 6 dancers in the top 20? Just what is in that water up there in Salt Lake City anyways? LOL

    This is the guy I thought looked like Benji through the auditions. I was actually a Benji fan, but I'm not wild about a Benji "redeux". This guy will have to really impress me to change my opinion...

    Thayne is one of my favorite male dancers (along with Mark & Gev). He does look like Benji, and a bit of Nick Lazzarini of Season 1 as well. Both Benji and Nick were my favs in their seasons, so hopefully Thayne may follow in their footsteps and win...

    Too effeminine for my taste, plus his mugging irritates me. However, he is a wonderful dancer. He just needs to keep that big fake grin off his face - it is a turnoff.

    I don't like him at all actually. The faces he make, also irritate me a lot.
