If you’re not watching this show this year, now’s the time to start. The auditions are over and the performances have begun and they are without a doubt the best ever. There are three classically trained ballet dancers on the show this year. Three ballroom dancers with Utah connections. A robot named Cyrus who can dance broadway. A martial arts expert, a stepper and a belly dancer. You heard me.
This is the most talented top 20 ever and they really should just go on tour with all 20 and be done with it. They’re all that good. there are, however, a few standout performances, including (for maybe the first time ever) the group numbers.
Among the best of the couples performances were probably the two blonde Utah ballroom twins, Lindsay and Witney, who are both 18 and have known each other and competed against each other in Utah for almost a decade.
If you don’t love these two Utah girls, there’s something desperately wrong with you.
This broadway number was remarkable for the fact that it featured a classical ballerina and a robotic animator with no formal training whatsoever. It also just flat killed.
But for my money, the best performances were these two:
Those last two partnerships are going to be really hard to beat, but the fact is that there are really no weak couples, so good luck deciding who should leave. Meanwhile, this season is going to be really great to watch.
