    Yay! We finally get one! Although the downside of this is that we may not see the American version aired here anymore, and that Aussie versions of American shows are often a let down, but hopefully this is not the case, and all our wonderful Aussie talent steps up ad shows what they can do!

    Yay!! I went to the Adelaide auditions. now I understand how the dancers must feel. It's soooooooooo long. But, I didn't audition. I just waited for my sister who did audition.

    Also, if the Australian series begins here in February, and it goes for about 12 weeks or whatever, it will be finished by the time the American one usually shows here anyway. Hopefully that is the case. Coz I don't want to miss out on the American one. Lol.

    Being such a huge fan of SYTYCD-usa I was totally floored to see Aussie's version of it. After having watched the first few eppys..I'm soooo hooked. Though the format is pretty much the same as the states, the presentation, visuals, production, music, editting, etc I think is so much more above par. They were successful in making it more appealing...more dramatic....and in some cases....very moving and inspirational. They really seem to present it in a more empathetic light. The judges are on point but also possess a caring warmth when it comes to reaching out to the contestants. I love how they guide and support the dancers more technically rather than coldly criticizing as most of these types of shows do. By having judges that are more feeling and human I think it's made the show much more engaging. I love love love the show! Still faithful to the states SYTYCD but have to give credit where it's due...props SYTYCD-AU!! Good on ya mate!! (the aussie-speak is kinda infectious!)
