stopthemadness to wet pants in excitement
Big news, SYTYCD fans! Ellen DeGeneres is going to dance Alex Wong’s part of that awesome Nappy/Tabs hip hop number with Twitch! Did you just crap your pants? Because I did. Just a little.
I must admit, I have given up on this season. I’ve got way too much crap going on and the show is boring. It was boring last season too. If it doesn’t get its shit together, I’m going to quit SYTYCD forever. (Just kidding! I didn’t mean it! Sorry, Cat!)
But this season has seriously sucked. After Alex Wong got injured (and by the way I totally, know a nurse who treated him for his injuries, and said nurse — he knows who he is ::angry glare:: — didn’t even get a picture!)
I guess that might have been unethical or whatever, but who cares about ethics? Certainly not me! (Oh wait… I hope the State Bar of California isn’t reading this.)
After Alex was eliminated (I have friends who attended that show and everybody in the audience was weeping, apparently), I figured I’d keep watching for Billy Bell. Then he got injured and I was all, “Fuck this noise. I can get my SYTYCD fix by watching clips on YouTube.”
But, the SYTYCD finale is tonight! And I, for one, will be watching because I want to see Ellen shoop shoop ba doop with Twitch! Aw yeah!
Yes, it’s happening: On tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance finale, include Ellen DeGeneres will recreate injured contestant Alex Wong‘s hip-hop routine with tWitch. As first reported by Perez Hilton [Asshat] (and now confirmed by Fox and DeGeneres’ publicist), Ellen taped the performance last night with tWitch after rehearsing for a month. The routine, to “Outta Your Mind” by Lil Jon featuring LMFAO, is considered to be the finest hip-hop routine ever performed on the show, and featured Wong working with his shrink (tWitch) to overcome his ballet baggage so he could hit hard on the Tabitha and Napoleon-choreographed number.
DeGeneres responded to a fan’s prediction that she’d be Wong’s sub with the following Twitter tease last night: “I like it! I wonder if it WILL happen?” This afternoon she followed up with: “#SYTYCD finale tonight. Broke my heart when Alex had to drop out. Tonight, I do something and I hope it makes him smile.”
