'So You Think You Can Dance' recap: Chrome swan
The first group to learn their fates are the contemporary dancers (well, one group of contemporary dancers; like always, there's a TON of them). Alexa, who was the last person cut last year, is the first person to get ushered into the Top 20 this year. Which is good, as I have come to like her and her pointy chin. Next up is George Lawrence II, whom Debbie Allen said was born to dance, and I'm not going to disagree with her. George has a little-boy thing happening which is going to need to be remedied, even if I enjoy the all-green bowtie-and-short-pants emsemble. Will Thomas is also in, though we don't learn a blessed thing about him.
Not so lucky: Megan Branch, a cute little pixie thing who has the giant, wide-set eyes of a Tim Burton heroine, had the full support of Mary Murphy in Vegas, but I guess that wasn't enough. Lil C lets her down mercifully. Also out: incredibly cute and well-coiffed Colin Fuller. Shoulder to cry on, guy?
That girl who I thought looked like Rihanna last week is Amber Jackson, who got cut at the Green Mile in Season 6 and then even earlier than that in Season 7, after which she pledged that she would never audition again. She says now that she has since dropped her pride and she's glad she did. I'll say, since she's made the Top 20, finally.
