25-year-old Cole Mills takes center stage tonight on the talent competition 'So You Think You Can Dance'.

A one-time football and lacrosse player, Mills, of Monmouth County, was also a gifted ballroom dancer from a young age, even becoming a national champion in the field of LatinDanceSport.

Having auditioned once before, Mills finally made it through the 'So You Think You Can Dance' audition process in March, and will be looking to advance tonight. Also representing New Jersey is 18-year-old Emily Carr of Springfield.

'So You Think You Can Dance' airs at 8 p.m. on Fox.
