I am very happy with the ones that were picked. If they were going to pick 6 guys, then they should have picked 6 gals as well. I don't buy the blubbering the judges do.........just goes to show you what good actors they are. Can't wait to see the returning contestants paired up with the newbies............should be awesome.........42
Can't remember the kid's name, but he was the one from the tiny farm town.

I didn't like the travelling, especially Nigel's exxaagerated trip. I did appreciate the dancers having their families right there to celebrate or commiserate.
Billy Bell and Alex Wong were pretty much guaranteed a trip to Vegas, but they were never guaranteed a spot in the competition - based upon feedback shown on both guys, they weren't locks for spots. That wouldn't be fair to the other dancers who may be raising the bar from their previous seasons. There have been many dancers who have made it to Vegas several times before making the top 20 - Katee Sheen, tapper Bianca, Brandon, the other tap guy who's younger brother made the show 1st, Pauline, etc. Others have been to Vegas multiple times and still haven't made the cut.
From what Adam said, they chose 6 guys because they were really split for the 5th guys spot. The probably didn't feel as strongly about the 6th girl.
