So You Think You Can "Fix" Dance

Anyone watching "So You Think You Can Dance"? It does have a Ballroom element.

Before I give my opinion let me say first I'm enjoying watching a lot of people considerably more gifted than myself.

BUT! I think after the result of "Dancing With The Stars" this is just another flim flam of the general public. Reasoning:

1. They wanted a villian for the audience to hate. I don't think the "professional" auditioned. He was recruited as a villian setting up the underdog routine again. The audience will tune in just to see the arrogant $%#@@&^% get knocked off in the final.

2. Last night we had the "professional" being interviewed where he stated one of the choreographers "wasn't as good" as himself. The final sequence was a preview of next week's show of the "professional" being brought before the board of choreographers who inform him "Didn't you think we'd scan all tapes? How smart was it to make comments like that against a choreographer."

Caught like the arrogant rat he is!

Never mind that just before that there was several minutes of one or more choreographer(s) going on about how the blond was "totally talentless".

I guess they didn't think she'd watch the show.

Bring on the underdog!

Other opinions?

yeah OB, ure right about the professional, hes just an actor paid to do this. why the heck would they put a professional dancer on the show? the shoz is supposed to make these people dance professionnally !!!!
plus the guy is the perfect arrogant person, he brings a dog who poops everywhere to his room.
anyway some of the dancers are really good and they are enjoyable to watch, its just the whole drama around it thast annoying. in dancing with the stars, the drama element was really small, and there was greater dancing.

Unlike "Dancing With the Stars," "So You Think You Can Dance" takes *any* dancer and exposes them to other styles. There are several professional dancers on it:

Blake -- the rude guy with the little dog
Snow -- she even said tonight "I am a professional ballroom dancer"
Maritza -- the salsa dancer from Chicago who chose dance over her marriage; she owns and runs her own studio in Chicago
Nick -- I believe teaches at dance camps

There were probably a lot more than that too. They just made a big deal about Blake to stir up "drama" on the show.

There were no rules against pros entering "So You Think You Can Dance."
