Auditions for “So You Think You Can Dance” Season 14 on FOX were held yesterday and over the weekend at the Gelsey Kirkland Academy of Classical Ballet and Kings Theatre, both located in Brooklyn, New York. The whole “SYTYCD” gang was back together again, including producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe, the show’s beloved host Cat Deeley and the return of the hot tamale train’s OG conductor, Mary Murphy (Jason Derulo and Paula Abdul will not return this season). Other guest appearances included La La Land choreographer Mandy Moore and guest judge, actress Vanessa Hudgens.
Here are some of the live tweets from the buzz on the street to the audition stage.

Producer and judge Nigel Lythgoe gave his own shout out to the return of his former colleague, Mary Murphy.
I am thrilled that @HOTtamaleTRAIN is back on #SYTYCD. If you speak to me and I don’t react I have had new earplugs… https://t.co/bDS0zGMWNo
