This year Nigel spent a lot of time pimping just how amazing the girls are. Shock. I really do not get it though, based on the top five girls they chose I’m not very excited. Lauren Froderman and Alexie Agdeppa are beautiful dancers but the other three I don’t have very clear pictures on. Hopefully they will blow me away tonight when we see them dance longer then a three second clip.
I felt the boys surpassed every expectation this year. This is the strongest group of boys to grace the stage and I am thrilled!
I was very disappointed Adrian Lee Ryan Ramirez and Anthony Burrell did not make the top. They were at the top of my list for this year. I hope they come back next season because they are incredible dancers.
