One of my favorite shows of the summer premiered tonight. So You Think You Can Dance premiered it’s 10th season tonight with the first of the audition rounds in Los Angeles.
If you have never watched this show, do yourself a favor and get in to it. This is the best of all the talent shows on TV. The judges never mock people like they do on Idol, and frankly, that is one of the best things about this show. I left Idol when they kept bringing clearly mentally challenged people on stage to mock them. That doesn’t happen on SYTYCD. That doesn’t mean there aren’t terrible dancers, there are. The judges however handle it correctly. They will tell terrible dancers the truth and tell them that they might never dance professionally, but don’t lose the love of dance, just dance because you have fun with it.
Full disclosure here. I can’t dance. Not a lick. I know I know. But Midwest Mike, you are so clearly talented. How can that be? Well I don’t know folks. I wasn’t gifted with that ability. Clearly the maker decided that my talents would be better used elsewhere. That being said, I love to watch talented dancers and I love seeing all the different styles of dance that are out there.
I really love this show and since it’s a summer show, I know you don’t have much else to watch. Give So You Think You Can Dance a chance (hey that rhymes. Remember when I said I have other talents?). It airs on Fox on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8:00.
Here are some of my favorite moments:
