Today's must-watch video: Dtrix gets both the comedy & dancing right in "Now add a Dancer"

Dominic 'Dtrix' Sandoval (member of ABDC Season 3's Quest) is a Youtube megastar, usually with emphasis more on his personal style of humor. This time, Phillip 'Pacman' Chbeeb (ABDC Season 6's IaMmE) took the lead on the choreography (with help from many friends) and the results are wonderful, particularly IMO for the table setting, and pool party.

Video: SYTYCD Atlanta audition hiphop highlights - Dynamic and Mr. Strange

This season's So You Think You Can Dance Atlanta auditions yielded great dancers in ballet, contemporary, jazz, and hiphop. My two favorite hiphop auditioners from the episode were Christopher 'Mr. Strange' Griffin (the founder of Dragon House) and Taveous 'Dynamic' Woods. Both made it to the next round, though it's unclear whether each can meet the multi-style challenges of the competition.

Must see video of the day: Ian Eastwood X2 takes on Jame Brown

Ian Eastwood (member of ABDC Season 7's Mos Wanted Crew) goes 'concept' and clones himself to dance to James Brown's "Get On Up."  One of the best pair dances I've seen in a while.
