'So You Think You Can Dance' recap: Mamma Mia ... Here I Go Again
And at the start of the show, Cat (dressed like a papier mache ice dancer) reminds us that the dancers have had two weeks to prepare these routines. Maybe spend this rare extra time creating something new??And FOUR more dancers will be eliminated tonight?? Did we know this?? You know how much I hate double-eliminations on this show. I know this is a result of things outside the show's control, but still: I'm all full of question marks and dread!
Mia, fresh off her intense performance in Step Up Revolution (where they totally reprised 80% of her Alison in Wonderland number, I should mention) looks happy as can be. Jidges this week are Nigel, Mary, and ballet professionals Michael Nunn and Billy Trevitt.
After introducing us -- via photo -- to newest edition to the Taboleon family (yes, Tabitha gave birth to a little baby hip-hopper while we were all busy Olympic-ing), we get the group routine, a new Mia number featuring the dancers hanging onto ropes suspended from the ceiling. As with many Mia group routines, the dominant effect is starkness and the coming together of many dancers into one organism. Not the greatest of Mia's group routines, but a solid one.
