This week's performances on 'So You Think You Can Dance' Season 17 were definitely a notch above the ones we have seen so far as they were also the last round of auditions for the season. Kicking off with a spellbinding performance by the mysterious Thiago which was chased by a pulsating performance by Essence Wilmington, the auditions were everything but generic.

With the bar set pretty high by the likes of Keaton Kermode, Beau Harmon, and Zyiasia Knighton, to name a few, the performers seemed to up the game with grace and style. One of them happened to be Armando "Decoy" Munoz, a popper looking to make more out of his life. Choosing dance as a medium to express and liberate himself, Decoy opened up before the audition, revealing a little bit about his life in the hood and the ill effects of having an absentee father who was caught up in the gang culture of America. Soon after, Decoy floored the audience and judges alike with his popping skills, proving that there's more to him than a life marred by gang violence. Read on to know what fans had to say about the "stunning" audition!
