Recap: ‘So You Think You Can Dance’ hits Los Angeles

"SYTYCD" comes to L.A., whoot! It’s the last city before Vegas, which means the judges are either loopy and looking at the dancing glass as half full, or exhausted and cranky, which means lots of grumbling and teary-eyed hoofer being sent off to that purgatory known as choreography. In any case, this should be interesting, so let’s get to it!

Nigel Lythgoe, Mary Murphy and Toasty Oreo (Tyce Diorio, see previous blogs) will be our judges for the Los Angeles leg.

First up, we have Jordan Casanova of Chino Hills. She giddily informs us that her alter ego is fierce. But she’s innocent. Ah, Jordan, you’re cute as a bug but let’s just get to the dancing. Which is, surprisingly, very good. She has excellent extension, nice timing, lots of personality, makes good use of the floor. Starting off on the right foot in Hollywood, it seems. And the judges appear to agree. Toasty and Mary are about to wet themselves they’re so in love with Jordan. Mary thinks it’s one of the hottest performances she’s ever seen. She loves the self-confidence. Toasty doesn’t have words at first, but then he calls her a naughty, naughty, naughty girl. Nigel doesn’t want to sound like a dirty old man, but he feels she controlled him. I will be very glad when they wrap up this critique, because it’s making me feel like I just watched a strip show. Anyway, Vegas! Read More...
