HOLLYWOOD - A seat on the "Hot Tamale Train" is no longer the benchmark of success on So You Think You Can Dance. There now is a more coveted ranking, a sweeter place known as the "Tra La La," and, yes, only judge Mary Murphy can explain what that means. She coined it last month, inspired by a Broadway routine performed flawlessly by hip-hop dancer Joshua Allen and his contemporary partner, Katee Shean, during Fox's multidiscipline dance competition for aspiring performers. After the performance, Murphy screamed in her usual jubilant, uninhibited, practically deranged manner.

Here we are in Atlanta. You can tell the auditions were in winter, as there is only a narrow window for wearing scarves in Georgia. Joining Nigel Lythgoe and Mary Murphy is Lil Buck, a Memphis-based dancer known for a style called " jookin . " Mariah Reives , 18, from Sanford, N.C., is a jazz dancer with charisma and legs for miles. Her style is very slinky and sexy, but still playful and young. She nailed the audition and you can tell by her giant smile that she knows it. Mary Murphy says she could see Mariah "doing almost anything we asked" her to do. Nigel says it was good technique married to great performance, so she's through to callbacks.

Out of the frying pan and into the fire, I'm switching from one dance show to another, with barely a week between the "Dancing with the Stars" finale and the "So You Think You Can Dance "premiere. Audition episodes are often my least favorite, primarily due to the number of joke auditions. Let's hope those are kept to a minimum this year. Cat Deeley's introduction says, "Every summer for the past decadeā€¦" Have we really been watching this show for so long? Huh. We're officially at the point where contestants can realistically claim to have been watching the show their "whole life.

Over prosecutor Mary Murphy's objections, Howard County Circuit Judge Diane O. Leasure allowed Karl Marshall Walker Jr., 39, to remain free on bail pending an appeal to the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. Louis P.

And now here we are on our regular night with Los Angeles auditions. It always makes me so happy to see Cat interacting with the dancers waiting in line -- she is sunshine in high heels. Judges tonight: Mary Murphy, Nigel Lythgoe, and professional goof Jesse Tyler Ferguson. Love him, too. Mary Murphy warns them, "No lip syncing, no 'self-worship,' and no booty-shaking, unless you're really good at it. " Jesse gets on the mike and says he wants to see everything Mary just forbade.
