Returning contestant Zachary Downer was one of the final auditions for season 14 of “So You Think You Can Dance,” as seen on Monday’s show. Watch the video below!

As Gossip Cop reported, the new cycle of “So You Think You Can Dance” premiered last month with a back-to-basics formula. After season 13 focused on the so-called “next generation” of young dancers, the FOX competition has returned to its typical 18-30 age range. Back, too, is former judge Mary Murphy, joined, as always, by head judge Nigel Lythgoe.

Downer first auditioned in season 12 and made it all the way to the “green mile,” where he found out he wasn’t moving on to the live shows. Now for his new audition, he performed a routine to “Ends” by Mikael Karlsson with his mom and aunt watching among the other hopefuls and their families and friends. He opted to do his try-out shirtless, and it was far from a gratuitous decision. Rather, that allowed his body’s remarkable form and his stunning movements to be that much more visible.

And as soon as Downer landed his final move, the panel’s newest judge, Vanessa Hudgens, could be heard exclaiming, “I want more!” She even gave a standing ovation with Murphy and Lythgoe, who pointed out, “Standing O from the audience. Wow!” Murphy also yelled, “That was amazing. Oh my gosh. He’s on the hot tamale train!”

“You just command so much attention,” she went on, adding, “I can’t see you not making it this time.” Hudgens told Downer, “I’m dying. You are so freaking fierce… You can tell you worked very hard.” Next week, “So You Think You Can Dance” will feature the first installment of this year’s dance academy. Downer will clearly be one to watch… again Check out the videos below! NOTE: The video is no longer available.
