Damn, that guy can Robot!
Sara and I are hooked on the show So you think you can dance? which airs on Fox Wednesday and Thursday nights through the summer. Season 2 was syndicated relentlessly on a few channels so we caught most of the episodes. We even sat through the marathon last weekend that covered the auditions and top 20 parts of the show. It is extremely impressive to me how the participants learn a routine in a week in a host of different dance styles. During the audition phase I am constantly impressed by some of the amazing dancers out there. I love to see the breakers, poppers and other unorthodox styles take over the stage for a minute.
This past Thursday’s episode had the auditions running in Atlanta, Georgia and was quite good. For me the ultimate highlight was Bryan Gaynor a 20 year old student who does the best Robot I’ve ever seen.
I love when the music picks up and he is right along with it hitting the beat with his moves. I normally don’t like Christina Aguilera but from now on I think that song will stick with me.
Next week is the Vegas phase of the show and should be interesting. I can’t wait to see if some of the underdogs I was rooting for during auditions will make it to the Top 20. Go ex-football playing ballerina whose dad doesn’t understand him! (Had to see it I guess).
