Of all the competition shows on the air right now, “So You Think You Can Dance” is far and away my favorite. The backstories, the judges (and celebrity judges,) the choreographers (NappyTabs forever!!!) and OHMYGOD the dancers.
I love it so much that a few seasons ago I even went to the touring live show when it came to Oakland – and I went to that live show to see one very specific dance: my favorite routine ever in the history of the show. All I have to say to any fan of the show is, “the briefcase.”
I get goosebumps thinking about that damn dance! And it was so cool at the live show… they did it last, at the very end of the night…the lights were completely out in the arena and then all of a sudden a spotlight came on, shining on just that lonely briefcase in the middle of the stage. Seriously dude I got goosebumps writing that sentence. I am such a SYTYCD geek.
I’m not the only one either, ’cause just one of the clips of that routine on YouTube has over 11 million views. Dang girl!
I bring all this up because I think Chelsie and Mark might have some “Best Routine Ever” competition from last night’s show – yep I’m talkin’ about Travis and Amy and that “Wicked Game” routine. Dammmmn. If it’s not my new favorite, it’s a close-as-hell second.
Here’s my favorite:
And here’s the challenger from last night:
