Brandon Armstrong So You Think You Can Dance Audition Video: Dancer Makes Comeback With Lindsay Arnold’s Sister
Brandon Armstrong wowed on “So You Think You Dance” on Monday when he auditioned with Lindsay Arnold’s little sister. Check out the video below!
At the end of the third audition episode of season 12, Armstrong took the stage, and was immediately recognizable to head judge Nigel Lythgoe. The contestant explained that he was a non-competing partner for Arnold back in 2012’s season 9, when he was too young to audition himself. Lythgoe gave him a note telling him to return in 2013, but while Arnold went on to “Dancing with the Stars,” Armstrong opted to go on a mission.
Now Armstrong finally returned for his own turn in the spotlight, and the tables were turned. This time around, the contender was accompanied by Arnold’s sister Jensen, who was HIS non-competing partner, as she, like Armstrong three years ago, was not old enough to try out herself. The pair performed a ballroom routine that, fittingly, had Lythgoe telling Jensen to “come back next year.”
As for Armstrong, Paula Abdul told him, “I think you are stunning. You have so much flair and wonderful style. Very well-trained.” Jason Derulo commended the 20-year-old for knowing “how to handle your woman.” The new judge explained, “It’s a big deal when your partnered, and you have to be the man in the relationship, and you have to dominate, and that’s what you did.”
Lythgoe thought the audition was “tremendous.” “Everyone said everything,” he told Armstrong, though he did go on to give a little advice. And Arnold, who was there in person to watch the try-out, was thrilled with their success. Watch the full video below!
