Olivia So You Think You Can Dance Audition Video


A 12-year-old named Olivia stunned with a beautiful contemporary routine during “So You Think You Can Dance” on Monday. Check out the video below!

The season 13 auditions for “The Next Generation” came to an end this week, but not before this 12-year-old had her shot. The New York native had host Cat Deeley a bit confused when she said she would be a snake in her performance. But all became clear when Olivia took the stage.

During a contemporary dance, the tween moved across the floor with smooth lines and incredible control. She even pulled off some contortions. At the end, the judges all gave Olivia a standing ovation.

Nigel Lythgoe said afterward, “Wow, I don’t know what’s happening here in New York, but we’ve gotten some incredible dancers today, and you, young lady, are one of them.” He went on, “Young lady, you are going to inspire the choreographers on this program, I can tell you that now. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.”

Paula Abdul declared, “You’re a gift. You’re a perfect of example of someone who’s hyper-flexible, but you know how to control that.” And Jason Derulo noted, “It seemed limitless. It looked just like a painting. It was a beauty to watch. Bravo to you.”

Lythgoe then deadpanned, “I don’t know why she’s still standing there. Are you going to come get a ticket or stay there?” Olivia, of course, was off to the next round. Watch the full video below!
