SYTYCD Recap: Wraps Up Auditions with Redemption, Anger, Great Dancing

This week's So You Think You Can Dance marked the end of an era. After an all too short month, DANCE fans bid a fond(?) adieu to Justin Bieber and his choreographer Nick DeMoura, who introduced their final Dance Crew Battle. While I'm sure Uncle Nigel will do whatever he can to get The Biebs on the finale to introduced the most-tweeted crew, assuming all of his visa issues are resolved.

Also coming to an end this week was the Season 11 auditions. From the gorgeous Fabulous FOX Theatre in Atlanta (where I have seen many-a-show) Hip-Hop icon LiL Buck and STEP UP star (and MAGIC MIKE's wife) Jenna Dewan Tatum served as guest judges alongside Mary Murphy and the aforementioned Nigel Lythgoe.

We got a little bit of everything this week; redemption stories, angry tirades, the patented sob-stories, the always annoying kid-dancing segment, and, as expected, some phenomenal dancing. So, onto the auditions:
