I am one of the very few Americans who HATE American Idol, I can honestly, and proudly, sat that I have never watched one complete episode! But it's not like I can live in this world and not know what's going on- it's everywhere you look. But tonight starts my favorite show, So You Think You Can Dance!
I was a little late to the SYTYCD hot tamale train, I didn't start watching until half way through season 2, when Travis inexplicably lost to Benji. Ever since then I've been hooked- it's the only show that I've ever voted on. I think what I love best about it is how hard these dancers have had to work to get where they are. Yes, there is a certain amount of innate talent involved, but so much of it is practice and dedication. Anyone can be born with a good voice, and not that there isn't work involved in honing that talent, but it's different.
I can't wait to see the new batch of talent this season, even though these first few episodes show as many awful dancers as they do good ones. Last year I was a huge Twitch Boss and Gev fan, but I also liked Joshua Allen, and I was happy he won. Who did you root for last year, if you watched?
