The 2010 season started off very nice, with some terrific dancers! Most notably missing from the action however was Mary Murphy, whom I know many, many people miss dearly. I was a fan of her dance knowledge, but not so much the screaming fits she would have. To each their own thought! Many in our forum outright miss her and think the new panel is too subdued. I actually enjoyed it. I am also very happy to see Mia Michaels returning to the show, and really hope she will be choreographing many of the dances this year. No one beats her in my opinion. She has always been the choreographer on the dances that touch me most.
The dancer that made it through that stood out the most to me last night however was Teddy. You may remember him last year, little blond kid who was wearing a very stand out lime green with plaid-ish shirt – I loved his dancing last year, seemed whimsical. Last year unfortunately, he didn’t make it out of the Vegas rounds. This year for his audition, he dressed all in a black suit and tie, and did an incredible, and incredibly sad dance, seeming to end with a sad little boy deciding to end his life. It was certainly touching, and he had so emotion in it. It was terrific.
Now for those of you that are fans of the show, you know that this year, SYTYCD powers that be have decided to change up the format. This year, instead of 20 contestants (10 couples) they have decided to only go with 10 contestants. Dancing as their partner with them will be “All-Stars” from seasons past. I am really excited to see some of the All Stars they plan on bringing back. I have included a list of the “All Stars” due to come back to dance this season at the bottom of this post. Also different this year, only one dancer will leave each week, and they will switch partners weekly.Details
