On the second episode of So You Think You Can Dance Season 15, judges Mary Murphy, Nigel Lythgoe, Vanessa Hudgens and guest star Stephen “tWitch” Boss continue watching auditions in Los Angeles. One of the most memorable performances is presented by Hannalei Cabanilla. The 18-year-old from Anaheim Hills, California gives an emotional performance to the Sia song “Eye of the Needle.” Lyrics of the song include: “Step and repeat / Tears fall to the beat / Smile through pain / Feel the acid rain.”
Hannalei graduated from Canyon High School in 2017, and just finished her freshman year at UC Irvine. She says she chose the state school because of the good dance program and it’s close to home. She also says she wants to become a professional dancer — but that’s already happening. So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) airs Mondays at 8pm on FOX.
