    Alex Wong’s dancing is nothing short of phenomenal. All of the dancers of season 7 were superb. Their routines were amazing and fun to watch. It was devastating when Alex injured himself and could not continue, as I looked forward to his performance every week. Good luck in American Idol as long as it does not interfere with your dancing. I am a big fan of SYTYCD, but was very disappointed in season 8. The routines were boring and the contestants were equally boring. The winner, Melanie, was an OK dancer, but pretty flat on personality. Maybe the contestants would have been more interesting if the choreography had been more interesting. Also, why so many different judges? Boring.

    I hope ale the best of luck but sytycd is a way better show then idol. I think that season 9 is going to be another step for dancing. SYTYCD, season 8 was the best season yet and if ale would be able to get on another season it will only show the improvements of the dancers each season by comparising.

    Hey Abbie. I Don’t Agree with you at All. I Thought that Last Season which was Season 8 was Fabulous. That Choreography Was Very Interesting. Napolean and that Woman with The Woodpeckers and The Feathers and where Melanie was like A Pillar of Salt or made out of Stone. The Wardrobe was Great and The Make Up was Incredible with their White Hair and They Looked Like They were made out of Stone. I Liked that one in the Jungle and up on the Platform. That was Good also with the Cages at the Zoo and the Wall was Very Unique. Melanie Is NOT Just An Okay Dancer. Alex is A Ballet Dancer, but I don’t know if He could Leap Across the Room like Melanie Did. I didn’t care for Kent with that Baseball Number that he did. I wasn’t That Impressed with Lauren until Nearly the End. She was Great with the Tahitian Dancing and I thought she was Probably A Good Dancer after Learning that She was A Cheerleader and Took A Dance Class. I Enjoyed her with her Students. I thought Alex was Phenomenal when he did that Hip Hop Number. I thought Several People were Great Dancers in Season 8. Jody
