It wouldn't be season six of So You Think You Can Dance without an episode stretching things out a liiiittle longer before the competition, but Monday night's special, the one-off "Meet the Top 20," was actually a fun respite between auditions and competition. We were treated to an evening of the dancers performing in their own style, with no voting or judging taking place yet (that'll happen tonight, in the two-hour competition and voting blitz).
But just because no official voting began doesn't mean that we viewers weren't judging ourselves — I relished the opportunity to see everyone in their own style of dancing, because it's a level playing field.
So who did you think proved that they deserve to be in the top 20? I still believe in krumping Russell Ferguson, while I worry for the tappers — a tap show was a nice change of energy for the show, but I don't know how Bianca, Peter, and Phillip will actually fare. You know who really blew my mind? The entire team who danced Mandy Moore's contemporary routine to "Viva La Vida." (Unfortunately, Billy Bell has been sidelined due to illness, so he's one person we won't see go any further.) Who do you think earned their spot all over again?
