    Sex was on this week. They even pushed him through to the choreography round.

    I think Nigel said this is the last time they were going to give him time on the show, too. Right?

    That's what he said.

    This year, I thought the producers really maked Sex look foolish with that competition between him and the other guy. Regardless, it's time for Sex and his mother to move one. I also noticed that Nigel calls him David.

    I thought it was great that Nigel gave Phillip Chabeeb a ticket to Vegas straight away since he had to miss due to illness last year. After his tryout with his friend, I'm sure he's not regretting that decision since Phillip has obviously worked on other aspects of his dancing - even if it was just to 'get the girl'. LOL.

    The 17 yr old was amazing, too. I assume he'll be 18 before the fall season.

    I agree. I didn't find it even mildly entertaining, just stupid.

    I think that was the point they were trying to make... You could tell Nigel was not happy they'd brought him back through to his round again.

    I don't know if they would have aired him if not for that faux throwdown between him and the other guy.

    I believe Nigel is one of the producers; so, he does have say in this. Even if they bring him out on stage, he could tell them not to air the footage.

    If anything, it seems that Sex was non-confrontational, as compared to other seasons. So, I think it was deliberate - they told him, we're not going to air you, but then when the other guy tried out, they saw an opportunity and went to Sex and said 'well, if you do..., you'll be on TV.'

    I thought last year they said they weren't going to have him on the show ....ever again. Nigel said last year he wasn't going to call him Sex anymore and called him David. One thing you can say about David (AKA Sex) is he doesn't give up easily.

    Did anyone catch the show last night? I thought all the dancers were really good, maybe the best starting season thus far. I was so excited to see Louie from DWTS doing choreography this year. One of the contestants, Jason, is from the Fresno, Ca. area, so I was voting for him along with several other couples. Should be a great season...........42

    Hi Show - I did catch it last night and learned that all the competitors have been in professional shows - even one young many is in ballet. I'm not against their competing but it is difficult to come up with a "best dancer". They are all good and I enjoy watching them.

    I thought the couple who got did the silent movie routine got a bad draw. They couldn't really do much with it and ended up looking sort of blah compared to the others, even though that girl is one of my favorites.

    If I had to pick a favorite dancer I'd choose Jason. He was terrific in the Bollywood routine. I agree, tho, that this is the best cast they've ever had & it will be hard to see most of them eliminated.

    they're not looking for the BEST dancer, they're looking for "America's FAVORITE dancer" which has ALWAYS been their tagline.

    and not all of the dancers have been in shows... AFAIK. You have a couple of hip hoppers that haven't IIRC... I think ALL of them have taken dance classes this time around, though. which is new.

    This is definitely one of the stronger top 20's for SYTYCD.

    I agree that the Hot Honey Rag routine was tough to do, but that's the challenge. The judges said it was technically great, but lacked performance quality. Hard to disagree with that. It was also tough to come after Phillip in a hip hop routine - it might've come off better after the 2nd hip hop routine.

    I did pick the bottom 3 and the 2 eliminated. Must mean I'm watching too much of this stuff.

    Next season, the producers have to do a better job with helping us get to know the top 20 - it was 'uneven' and therefore, some have the advantage of being 'known' before the actual competition begins. Phillip and Brandon got a lot of air time beforehand - even Tony got air time with his 'Nigel' solo during Vegas week. One of the blondes got air time becauase her sister also competed, another for her ugly unitards, Asuko stands out because she's Asian + she was the last female into the top 20. Other guys like Vitilio, Ade, etc - I don't remember them at all with regards to any real air time until now.
