More highlights from So You Think You Can Dance Boston auditions: Toshihiko Nakazawa, John Tesoriero

Two more highly entertaining hip hop performers from the Boston auditions for So You Think You Can Dance:
- Toshihiko Nakazawa performed mixed hiphop styles. The judges were taken both by his technique and his lack of English language skills and sent him through to the Las Vegas round

-John Tesoriero is a crew member for UPrising at Boston College. He brought in a street beatboxer for his audition, which was one of the more creative ones I've seen in a while. I'm not sure why he didn't get sent straight to Las Vegas, but he was cut after the choreography round.

Video: E-Knock (Status Quo, Legendary 7) at So You Think You Can Dance Boston auditions

Ernest 'E-knock' Phillips (leader of America's Best Dance Crew's Status Quo and Legendary 7) made it to the choreography rounds for So You Think You Can Dance. He performed a very moving solo about the recent death of his cousin. I'm not sure why he went to choreography when other hip hop dancers with similar talent went through to Las Vegas.

Video: Brian Puspos choreographs Ian Eastwood (Mos Wanted Crew), Pat Lam, Pat Cruz, Ade

From the description: This video isn't for me nor my journey, but for everyone who was there and still here giving my journey purpose. With that being said, I flew out my best friends from Houston that make my saying "True friendships can grow separately without growing apart." factual. This concept isn't even a concept. This is real life, but it's more than just a typical night out in LA with my friends. It's about celebrating with other hard working individuals who happen to be my friends. As artists in our particular art form, we are still overlooked and sometimes omitted from any recognition. We truly deserve more. As you see or will see, I definitely embrace the work hard play hard philosophy.
