4. More than 800 girls auditioned to be backup dancers for Beyoncé.
A couple months ago, Beyoncé's longtime choreographer Frank Gatson set up an audition and watched more than 800 girls try out to be backup dancers. "This year's tour audition process was the Super Bowl," Gatson told Spirit, a magazine that recently featured some of the dancers on their cover. "We saw 800 girls and once we got down to 100, we paid close attention to who was professional and magical. Beyoncé was very clear on who to pick for the tour—she means business. She's hands-on and she wants her dancers to shine like stars."
