SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE on “Idol Gives Back” (Video)

April 10, 2008 by  

How crazy cool was the opening number on last night’s “Idol Gives Back“. Forget about the IDOL contestants, it was all my favorite SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCErs owning the stage. I’ve watched it, oh, about five times so far and I still can’t get enough of it. It was a hellahot routine and if nothing else I hope it gets a few more people interested in checking out SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE when it premieres on Fox on May 22nd.

So for your viewing pleasure here’s last night Idol opener…

What a refreshing change it is to see the IDOL contestants singing something fun and contemporary. I think the show needs to revisit the Top 40 theme week soon, because these kids have the voices to pull it off.

Name the SYTYCDers. There were just too many for me and they were all moving so fast. I know missed a bunch, but I know I saw: Benji, Lacey, Travis, Danny, Dmitry, Ashlee, Pasha, Cedric, Donyelle, Lauren, Nick and a few S1ers (who I didn’t know), Hok & my love Dom (and the Six Step Crew?). They were all amazing, but the B-Boys at the end were out of control.

    I absolutely loved seeing them on the stage. I can’t wait for SYTYCD to come back! The swing dance that Benji and Lacey did just made me smile and seeing Travis- yay! Pasha totally got a lot of face time, which turned into put a smile on my face time! :)

    loved it!

    Nick and Melodie were also there. Nick won Season 1.

    I was super excited to see Nick, Melody and Jamile from season 1! I’m kind of bummed that you didn’t watch season 1, GMMR. Nick and Melody were so so good and Jamile was really fun to watch. Where was Heidi?

    I can’t wait for this season!

    Also, It’s Thursday! Finally! I thought this day would never come.

    So excited to see S1′s Nick, still my favourite by far. Love that boy. I think I also saw Ashlee from S1.

    It was so amazing. I was firmly planted in front of the TV at 7:30 pm so I wouldn’t miss a second.

    Where was our girl Sabra though? It would have been cool to see all 3 winners. Benji & Lacy were on fire. I got so excited when I saw Pasha, he was definitely my favorite from S3.

    I’ve already watched it at least 10 times! So good. I love me some Pasha, Lauren, Danny and Dom.
