Entertainment Weekly has just released their picks for the top 25 routines from So You Think You Can Dance. It is no secret that I am IN LOVE with this show. I even asked my husband when this season started if he thought it was too late for me to become a dancer. And yes, I was totally serious. Every season the talent just seems to get better and better and this season is no exception. Every week I am giddy with anticipation for the new show and watching I am riddled with chills at the raw talent of all the contestants. If you don’t watch, I urge you to give it a try. Because how do you know you don’t like something unless you try it?
I am not going to admit to watching this show but I did happen to catch 5 minutes of it last night while channel surfing. And the 5 minutes I watched, although adorable as seen below, made think 2 things:
- This show is awful. Like on the scale of America’s Got Talent awful. 5 minutes was all I could bear.
- I CANNOT WAIT for SYTYCD. Hurry back now, y’hear!
But on a side note, this might just be the cutest old couple on the planet! (Skip forward to about 1:07 to see the dance)
I know I have blogged about my childish obsession with So You Think You Can Dance before, but I can’t stress to you enough that if you are not watching this show, you totally should! I was a little skeptical of Season 7′s format when they announced they’d be pairing contestants with all-stars from previous seasons, but based on last night’s show, I’m sold on the concept. From beginning to end, the whole episode freaking ROCKED! Sure, there were a couple of so-so routines in the middle, but even the solos were impressive last night, which is typically just filler.
Below is a video of the last performance from last night’s episode, featuring all-star Twitch and contestant, Alex Wong. Alex began dancing at age 7 and left the Miami City Ballet to join SYTYCD so to say he is a good dancer might just be the greatest understatement of all time. This video is of a hip-hop routine, which initially, you expect Alex to tank on. The result is quite the opposite. Just watch.
