  • One of the best shows I have seen so far! I hope they do it again.

    This is my second favorite show to watch. (First being Friends) I loved watching the dancing. I think that it would have been better if one girl and one guy won because that was how they were judged for the whole competition. Either way I love the top two dancers!
  • The final episode of the 1st season ends with a bang. All 16 finalists return to dance, and show American they have what it takes to find themselves a successful career in dancing. But only 1 will walk away a winner. Nick, Melody, Ashle, or Jamile?moreless

    This show was my American Idol fix for the summer, but surprisingly, So You Think You Can Dance? is even better.

    Since the beginning of the season, I have been routing for Blake McGrath to win. He is an amazing dancer. I might be a little bias since he lived in my town once apon a time.

    Anyway, I was very surprised Blake was voted out, Jamile should of been leaving that night. But proved to myself and the country that he has what it takes to be a dancer. Not just technique, but performance, and popularity which is crutial to a successful career.

    Hooray for Nick for winning. Well deserved. I loved the fact that him and Melody came into the auditions together, and ended up standing side by side at the finale.moreless
  • I love dance and loved this show. I hope they will air it again. I happened to miss the begining of the series, so I thought that there was going to be one female winner and one male winner. It weird to have so much couple dancing, then choose one.moreless

    I think the results were very intersting. I do believe that the 4 deserved to be there. They all had something that really set them apart from the others. Jamile was not very good with technique in most of the dance styles but he absolutely had presence. While presence is something that is needed for performing, I\'m not sure how important it is for dancing. I must admit that I did keep voting for them because he tried so hard and didn\'t have advantages with the variety of dance lessons like the others. Ashlee is a very exceptional dancers. She can do any style that is placed before her and do it well. I was shocked that her vote was so low. I did, however, agree that she lacked that stage presence that Jamile has. I think that Melody and Nick had a great combination of Jamile and Ashlee: technique and stage presence. I was surprised that Melody didn\'t win. But, they both were so good (it might be that they studied under the same master). But, they both deserved it. It was really hard for me to vote for the last show. I chose to vote for the underdog (Jamile) because I thought he deserved representation. But, I was shocked that he beat Ashlee.moreless
  • Well, the best man won. However, this turned out to be more of a popularity contest than a dance contest. Ok, one of the best dancers won. However, one of the best dancers came in number 5 because he was arragont. The best female dancer came in number 4.moreless

    Nick and Melody came to the auditions together. It is fitting the pair left the competition as the number 1 and number 2 dancers. I am guessing the demographics of this show skew more towards young females than thirtysomething males like myself.

    There was a wide variety of dance styles in the season. This finale show did a good job of retrospect on those. It also had a few surprises. Seeing host Lauren Sanchez dance was an unexpected occurence. Bringing back the guy with the twirling banner baton was totally unneeded. Then there was a dance supergroup who came out to play. If they were the professionals, then the contestents on the show should be pleased. The contestents were every bit as good as they were.

    Finally, the hosts were all dressed up for the finally. The show did a good job in getting outrageous personalities for hosts. No one can ever forget Mary's "Wooooo."

    Congratulations to Nick. He gets $100,000 and the opportunity to be forgotten in a year by millinos of Americans.moreless
  • Nick won

    While I started watching this to be with the family (wife and kids love the show) I found that I enjoyed it and root for some people (the finalists) and against others (Blake and Camilla - booo! Someone get that girl a brass pole!)

    The good guys won. Not sure how lucrative a dance career can be, but the $100,000 and the aprtment in NY aren't anything to sneeze at. I'm sure all the contestants will have careers and be happy with talk shows, book deals and the movies acusing bad judging and the requisite "the judge promised this for that favor" accusation.

    Still, all that said, it was a fun ride.moreless
