Yo yo yo! Been itching to get this sucker up since the episode aired.
For all of you who watched it, I consider you my crew. I shall pop to you… lock to you… do a windmill and pass it off to you.
But for those who didn’t watch the episode… no worries… here’s how it went:
- A LOT of awesome dancers in a variety of styles. In fact, too many for me to remember. A really tall girl, a dude with a fuchsia tri-hawk, Asian Ballroom, a dirty ballerina, blah blah blah… it was a high talent episode, I thought.
- Just a small handful of lame auditions where the dancer(s) either couldn’t dance, cried afterwards, or both.
- The return of the classic SYTYCD character SEX. Only this time he was coerced into a strange battle with another goof ball dancer. And after the dust settled, our lovable time waster was given a pity pass into the choreography… yep, for the first time in SYTYCD history, SEX moved forward in the competition… can you guess how he did with a partner??
But throughout the entire episode, nothing rocked me more than the magical tale of Nickolas Nasty… aka Nick Nasty. I wouldn’t say he’s the best breaker I’ve seen. But he’s good. Certainly good enough to want to test in other styles.
But there was a li-ttle snag.
Check it out. His story/audition begins at 2:28 in the video.
(by the way, how great is this still frame of Nigel??!!)
I’m not gonna share my feelings about this in the post itself. Instead, I was hoping to have a dialog with all of you in the comments.
So what do you think? Was he treated unfairly? Did he get what he deserved?
Pass me that wave.
