I believe that was Alan. He came off as a really nice guy. I think there were only 10 dancers - or fewer - during season 1. Final 3 were Jamile, Melody and Nick. Melody and Nick were best friends and I think platonic roomies. Their All that Jazz routine is still one of the best routines out of all seasons - not the best, but definitely in the top 20. Melody and Alan also had a lovely 'soldier' story routine, too.

Melody and Nick were splendid, weren't they? They're still among my favorite finalists. I'm sorry that the kind of dancing they do isn't in vogue. Someone ought to revive the movie dance musical, and not just for hip hop. Then we could see dancers like them regularly.
