Video: Family dance will melt your heart

While my daughter was practising balancing on one foot, or my son was attempting his signature twirl (this time without falling), or perhaps more likely, while they were both playing with Star Wars Lego or smothering the dog, four-year-old Kiera, her dad — who's known as Hampton "Exorcist" Williams — and her mom, Darlesha, were perfecting their dance audition for the hit show So You Think You Can Dance.

Williams, 22, had auditioned last year on his own and moved the entire audience, and viewers across the world, to tears. His Exorcist dance is, as Nigel Lythgoe said, "genius." It is a unique mashup of different dance styles, and its aim, according to Williams, is to exorcize your heart of its demons.

This year, Hampton returned with his girlfriend and their adorable daughter, in an audition that will move, amaze and inspire you. Checkit! (And yes, you're not imagining it — that's Minnie Driver on the judging panel.)

I love it when the mom runs on stage and nails it! Family unity at its finest. What'd you think? Were you moved, too? Since our comments our disabled for a bit, tweet us @TodaysParent to let us know.
