  • He is/was a great dancer now!/on SYTYCD!

    Danny was a great dancer, but I didn't realize it until the top 10. I guess I thought he was arrogant, maybe it's just the camera and that Adam guy being jealous...? Well, whatever. He's a pretty good dancer, and on SYTYCD I thought he could've won, (even though I wanted Lacey to, I liked him more than Sabra, no offense to her at all). His last solo was probably the best solo technique wise that night(top 4 finale). He had several good performances on the show(the Samba with Lacey...) I think even if he didn't audition for SYTYCD he still would've made it far and now he will make it far because all the ability, technique, and publicity to do it.moreless
  • Danny should have won!

    i watched Danny and i think he was the most amazing thing to grace a stage,when he danced, he floated, it was mesmerising for me that was winner material, not to say sabra wasnt a great dancer either, but danny was a lot better. hope to see him more in the future, he is one to look out for!looking at they way he danced and carried himself, he was nothing short of perfect, he had such a graceful flair about him. overall it should have been Danny first, runner up Pasha, then lacey but i guess, thats just how the cookie crumbles!moreless
