The auditions for “So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation” continued Monday (June 6) and this time, the crew headed to Chicago to see all the talent the windy city had to offer. Out the gate, some fierce competitors took the stage but one left a lasting impression on the crowd and the judges. Introducing … Tahani Anderson.
Young Tahani presented a fun, energetic routine set to Beyonce’s “Countdown” and won immediately won the auditorium over. Without any critiques, Nigel Lithgoe, Jason DeRulo and Paula Abdul all stood up with tickets to the Academy for Anderson. Welcoming her with hugs, it seemed that Abdul was a bit too forceful with her grip and, well … up came the vomit.
Anderson didn’t seem too phased by the gaffe, telling Cat Deeley, “I Hugged Nigel and then I hugged Paula and she just squeezed me too tight and all the happiness came out on her jacket.” Maintaining her poise, especially after such a potentially embarrassing moment on national TV, we have a feeling Anderson is going to go far in the competition.
“I’ve never had anyone just vomit on me like that,” Abdul said. Something tells us, that’s not entirely the truth.
“So You Think You Can Dance: The Next Generation” airs Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT on FOX.
