The judges on So You Think You Can Dance praised the boring dances and ripped on my faves — what’s going on?
For the first time ever, Fox’s hit dance show was taped live June 16 — and I had the pleasure of experiencing it in person. Unfortunately, Adam Shankman, Nigel Lythgoe and Mia Michaels‘ criticism was WAY off if you ask me!
I couldn’t believe all three judges thought 23-year-old ballet-dancing wonder Alex Wong and All-Star Allison Holker‘s performance was the best in So You Think You Can Dance history.
“I believe that you have just set a new standard for [the show],” Nigel said.
Mia also gushed about Alex, saying, “I have to say that that is the best, hands-down … piece of work danced on [this] stage anywhere, in the world, up to date.”
Exaggerate much? Alex and Allison’s dance last night did NOT rival 2007’s ‘Bench Dance’ or even tWitch’s ‘Door Dance’ during season five. Sure — Alex’s perfect technique is unprecedented on the show, but I wasn’t nearly as entertained by his dance as I was by other numbers, such as Robert Roldan and Courtney Galiano‘s African-Jazz performance.
Did you think the judges were over-enthusiastic about some contestants and too harsh with others? What were YOUR favorite numbers of the night?
