So You Think You Can Dance Season 10 Premiere Part 2
Welcome back to So You Think You Can Dance‘s premiere, now broadcasting from The Motor City. Would you like to see what amazing artistic expressions you missed by your failure to tune in? (And yes you *are* failing to tune in. Last night’s premiere was beaten by a Voice clip show of all things. You disappoint me America! Mark Burnett is going to be well nigh insufferable if this keeps up.)
Let’s get to what you didn’t see. Cue music.
I was with Nigel on this one. It was so beautifully moving, I didn’t want it to end.
Amy was far too perky for my taste, but her audition more than made up for it. It even made up for forcing her poor dad on stage to be told he wasn’t going to Vegas.
Mo challenging tWitch to an abs-off immediately put me off him, and it didn’t help that he trotted out a dead grandma right afterward. His leaps were beautiful, but otherwise I thought his routine wasn’t that impressive.
Tap Dancer Alert! His name is Tyrone. I’m not sure Mary is right that he’s the best tapper they’ve seen in ten seasons, but he’s certainly formidable.
Sysko shows up to demonstrate “jittin,” which is Detroit’s home grown dance style. He’s not bad, but his semi male stripper routine that follows when Nigel asks about other forms of dancing is more entertaining. that’s not a good sign. He gets sent to choreography, which he does not pass.
He wins major points though because his performance inspires tWitch to take the stage.
I would watch an entire hour’s program of this. No lie.
We end the night on a group of boys who dance for a living by stripping. Smilez is a really good krumper, but can’t handle the choreo round. His friend Prince Charming does not give up so easily and heads through to Vegas.
Next week, the show settles into its regular Tuesday at 8pm slot and Minnie Driver shows up to guest judge.
