'So You Think You Can Dance's' Nigel Lythgoe on Nathan: Engage your brain!
One of the nice things about the "So You Think You Can Dance" judges -- Nigel in particular -- is they say what they think.
And this week, they sent contemporary dancer Victor Smalley home, but there was some debate as to whether Nathan Trasoras should've gone instead?
Well, Nigel says that while Nathan is a tremendous dancer, the kid simply needs to start engaging his brain.
He feels Victor's growth in the competition should've guaranteed him a spot in the Top 10 over Nathan. But judge Adam Shankman disagreed, saying now that we're in the finals and Nathan will be paired with someone new, he could begin to up his game. Adam said Nathan and Mollee's youth and similar style could've been the thing holding them back. Or not. Next week, we'll find out.
As for Ms. Mary Murphy, she's pumped about the newly-crowned season 6 Top 10 and tells us about her dream pairings, hoping to see married couple Ashleigh and Ryan Di Lello snag a ballroom routine together and contemporary dancers Ellenore and Jakob team up to dance their own style.
There's also talk about Legacy's tears, Twitter and turning the voting rights over to America next Tuesday.
Plus, eliminees Victor and Karen Hauer tell us what amazing dancers they are!
Take a look...
You happy with the top 10? Or do you think Victor and Karen were robbed?
