Yes, it's happening. An insider confirms to EW that tonight's So You Think You Can Dance finale will include Ellen DeGeneres recreating injured contestant Alex WongÃ¢â¬Ës hip-hop routine with tWitch. As first reported by Perez Hilton, DeGeneres taped the performance last night with tWitch after rehearsing for a month. The routine, to Outta Your Mind by Lil Jon featuring LMFAO, is considered to be the finest hip-hop routine ever performed on the show, and featured Wong working with his shrink (tWitch) to overcome his ballet baggage so he could hit hard on the Tabitha and Napoleon-choreographed number.
DeGeneres responded to a fan's prediction that she'd be Wong's sub with the following Twitter tease last night: I like it! I wonder if it WILL happen? And this afternoon, she all but confirmed it: #SYTYCD finale tonight. Broke my heart when Alex had to drop out. Tonight, I do something and I hope it makes him smile.
