Last year's champion Fik-shun, along with some other notable alumni, were on hand in the show's hometown.

Nigel invites Fik-shun, Cyrus, and Legacy up on stage to battle Kyle, and while the alums clearly dominated the battle, that was one of the most enjoyable segments in the auditions so far. While I've said that the solos don't excite me as much as the full performances, the one exception is the poppers and animators. I could watch those that do that well for hours on end.

Justin Bieber and his choreographer Nick DeMoura were back to introduce this week's Dance Crews. As a reminder, during the first four audition episodes we will meet two dance crews, then, depending on Twitter votes, one crew from each episode will earn an opportunity to perform on a live show. The crew with the most votes gets a spot on the finale.

In a very underwhelming reveal, we found out that the Syncopated Ladies won last week's battle and will appear on a live show this season.
