July 1, 2010 by  

This is the routine that all SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE fans will be talking about tomorrow.  In case you missed it, or maybe you just want to watch it a few more times, here is Alex and tWitch’s Hip Hop routine.

[Note: For all you non-SYTYCDancers, what makes this dance extra special is that Alex is a trained ballet dancer. He's not a hip hop'per...or so we all thought.]

    I actually got on my feet and was clapping in my living room. I have watched it about 10 times already! BLOWN AWAY! They better be doing a tour this year!

  2. Hannah on July 1st, 2010 1:47 am

    That was freaking INSANE! I was screaming and clapping in my living room as I watched it. No other season of SYTYCD has ever made me get so into it like this one has!!

  3. Mandy on July 1st, 2010 2:36 am

    Yay! Thanks for posting it. That was insanely amazing!

  4. Randi on July 1st, 2010 3:32 am

    Alex is a god. I love every minute! I wish he could do hip hop with Twitch every week!!

  5. Laiq on July 1st, 2010 6:10 am

    About half way through the routine I found myself (attempting) to get up and dance too. Loved every second.

    ballet and hip hop-inventive storyline, great choreography, fun and technically difficult-love alex’s joy in doing the routine! alex is an artist.

    How fun!! Thank you for posting this! I wasn’t home last night and forgot to set my VCR. (Yes, I still have a VCR. I am a dinosaur.)

  8. Alison on July 1st, 2010 9:44 am

    AMAZINGG!!

  9. Julia Mathias on July 1st, 2010 9:45 am

    Just AWESOME! At the end me and my mom were also clapping, screaming, and laughing, it was so fun! It’s not my favorite SYTYCD routine ever, but I think it’s the one that got the most viceral response from me.

  10. Kimber on July 1st, 2010 11:00 am

    This dance was … cramazing!! I could not get over it. Alex is a freakin’ genius, and pairing him with Twitch for hip hop with NappyTabs?! Also GENIUS!! Thanks for posting this again for my superb enjoyment!

  11. Melissa on July 1st, 2010 12:06 pm

    Even my 7-year old daughter turned to me and said THAT WAS INCREDIBLE MOM…WE HAVE TO WATCH IT AGAIN!

  12. Canakatydid on July 1st, 2010 12:38 pm

    It was unreal!! So freakin amazing!
    (Even my mom who doesn’t think that SYTYCD has much “real” dancing and dislikes hip-hop loved it and thought it was amazing!)

  13. K. Lowery Moore on July 1st, 2010 12:51 pm

    THIS ROUTINE WAS FREAKIN’ GENIUS….I MEAN GENUIS!!! We expect this from Twitch but ALEX….OMG!!! I CAN’T STOP WATCHING…LOVE EVERY SECOND!!!!

  14. Marisa on July 1st, 2010 1:39 pm

    Cannot stop watching this. AMAZING. Amazing. Completely unreal and totally lived up to the hype.

  15. Jewels on July 1st, 2010 2:04 pm

    All I could say…. this is a ballet guy?? EXCELLENT! Alex Killed this routine, thanks to Twitch and Tabitha and Napoleon for such an exciting and best hip hop routine I have seen on SYTYCD. Alex you are just OUT OF THIS WORLD! I hoping to see you in the FINALE!

  16. Amanda on July 1st, 2010 3:00 pm

    Can’t…Stop…Watching!!! That was Banoodles!!!!! Loved it! I was crying with joy at the amazing fun!

  17. Jackie on July 1st, 2010 3:52 pm

    That was an awesome dance! Alex is truly gifted!

  18. Kristen on July 1st, 2010 4:22 pm

    The craziest part is, he schooled tWitch. tWitch literally just got schooled by an Asian ballerina.

  19. sweetman on July 1st, 2010 4:34 pm

    I was blow away by this! Unbelievable! I can not watch it enough. Thanks for posting, it’s fantastic.

  20. De'Andra "Dede" Roberson on July 1st, 2010 6:05 pm

    Alex was amazing!!! He has to make it to the top 5 and 2.

  21. Christina on July 1st, 2010 7:54 pm

    one of the best routines I have seen ever on SYTYCD…I have watched it over and over and over again. Brilliant!!!

  22. Michele on July 1st, 2010 8:05 pm

    Crazy good!

  23. Bunny on July 1st, 2010 8:40 pm

    That was freakin’ AMAZING!!! Me and my mom were laughing and clapping, even my older brother liked the dance. Wow, wow, wow! ♥♥♥

  24. butrflyleh on July 1st, 2010 9:46 pm

    Hi,
    I LOVE this, anyone know how I can download this to my iPod?
    Thanks!

  25. Sean Boyle on July 2nd, 2010 12:05 am

    AWESOME Alex – looks like a Canadian guy might just win SYTYCD this year!! Amazing routine – just in time for Canada Day!

    You have done us proud – we luv ya Alex!

  26. Sean Boyle on July 2nd, 2010 12:06 am

    AWESOME Alex! Looks like a Canadian guy just might win SYTYCD this year!

    Fantastic routine & just in time for Canada Day!

    We luv ya Alex – best of luck!

  27. Megan McKenzie on July 2nd, 2010 2:51 pm

    What genius from all of the artists involved. This was a hip hop version of the “Dance of the Red Shoes”. Brilliant…up to date…and totally enjoyable. I can’t help but love Twitch even more with his attempt at the last ballet twirl.

    SYTYCD went to another level with this choreography and performance. Alex Wong, I love you and admire your work. Please win the competition.

  28. Rishi on July 2nd, 2010 4:19 pm

    So basically the “format of all-stars” is working b/c of Alex. His week 1 dance with Alison and this week with tWitch. Pretty much every other routine has been hurt by the format as the all-star has outshined the contestant.

  29. Kath (GMMR) on July 3rd, 2010 8:43 am

    I think we’ll have to agree to disagree on that one. I think the All Star format is working well. The dances have been so much better because the choreos have more time to work with the dancers rather than having to teach two different dancers.

  30. Amber on July 3rd, 2010 2:57 pm

    blown away by this performance! These 2 are going to go a long long way in their dancing careers!!

  31. yeong yasmine on July 3rd, 2010 11:43 pm

    My god Alex Wong, u re a dancing genius ! We love u so much and I watch u n Twitch danced the hip hop a million times. You are insanely amazing and I wish you all the best and hope u will be selected Amercian fav dancer ! Good luck Alex and keep hopping !!! Eeeeeek!

  32. girlfriend on July 7th, 2010 3:24 pm

    ARE. YOU. FRrrrEAKIN’ KIDDING ME??!!!! That was THE best routine Napoleon and Tabitha have ever created. Twitch–> AMAZING!! Alex…. there are no words to convey the joy, delight and “go head getcho groove on, boy!” that I feel for you right now!! Nap&Tab…they just gained more respect from me than they’ve EVER had (and I’ve been watching the show from day one)! I remember when they joined the show. I have my favorite choreographers… N&T were not on that list….. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!? That was INCREDIBLE!! CONGRATULATIONS TO THEM, ALEX AND TWITCH!! If that’s not one of the bring backs at the end of the season I’ll shave my head!!!

  33. Gina on July 7th, 2010 10:48 pm

    ALEX showed out on that dance!!!!! UNBELIEVABLE!!!

  34. april on July 8th, 2010 12:27 am

    WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!!!

    I’m Still talking about this one, and likely will for weeks, or months, to come. I really do not like Hip-Hop, but I LOVE This Routine!!!

    I definitely agree with the others, Alex is a genius and I feel he should win this season. Come on and keep doing us proud, Alex!!!

  35. Malinda Williamson on July 8th, 2010 11:34 pm

    Alex, I was so sad to see you go tonight. I KNOW this competition was completely your’s this year. It was a pleasure watching you master everything thrown your way. I look forward to seeing all the wonderful things you have under your wings. I hope surgery goes well and to see you in the near future!

  36. Steve on July 9th, 2010 3:30 pm

    Amazing routine! Actually looks like Alex has better footwork than twitch, smoother and faster.
    Too bad he got injured, he probably would have been this season’s winner.

  37. Tweety on July 9th, 2010 11:11 pm

    I wa so disappointed…the ONLY person that made me watch the show it was Alex, now that he is not in the competition, i don’t think i ‘m interested to continue to watch. I Wish all the best to Alex in regards to his surgery!
    Ah’ i LOVE his HIP HOP routing, i have been watch it sooo many times that lost my count.

  38. Stephanie on July 10th, 2010 3:26 am

    I friggin loved this dance. It was friggin AMAZING. I love alex and i am depressed that he got hurt and cannot continue with the show. I so wish to see him next year. and automaticaly be a contestant. LOVE YOU ALEX.!!!!

  39. Kari b. on August 15th, 2010 3:04 am

    I made my 19 yo bro come in and watch this video. He was amazed. I was amazed. I wish I had these moves. And for Alex to go from balet to getting funky. He looked like a hip hop pro. I’m a hip hop head. I know. He had the umph in each move. Wow. I’m going to wear this clip out. I’ll have to check out this site. I stumbled across it.

  40. Miranda on August 15th, 2010 6:29 pm

    I love Twitch!!!!! Hes the best!! I would love to meet him in person!! This was such a GREAT dance!! Loved it!

  41. kj hooten on November 30th, 2010 3:22 am

    So how is Alex Wong now? It’s been several months. Can he dance? Will we see him again?

  42. LALIT on June 20th, 2011 1:18 am
