RUSSELL FERGUSON, KRUMPER — WHOA!

I don’t have much time to write — book issues! — but I just wanted to say how much Russell Ferguson blew me away last night on So You Think You Can Dance with his krumping solo. Holy crap! Now I know what krumping is!

Oh my gosh, I’m so glad the judges had him do that solo so we could all see such excellence. I don’t think they were really seriously thinking about kicking him off; they just wanted to let us see his immense worth to the show, just in case people (like moi) didn’t watch auditions :)

Ohhh, I just want to see him do that again and again and again!

I can’t seem to find any videos of him doing that solo on YouTube. Can anyone else? Here he is dancing his Foxtrot last night with Melanie LaPatin (who replaced last minute an injured Noelle).

My other favorites from last night were Jakob Karr (duh!) and Kathryn McCormick, and I thought Pauline Mata was lovely in her beautiful Waltz, choreographed by Jason Gilkison. I also liked Victor Smalley but am going to have to see him more before I form a definite opinion. Of course I’m really really really upset about Billy Bell having to leave the show over an illness. I hope he’s okay. He’d said that Juilliard had given him the year off to take part in the show so I hope they extend that another year. Otherwise, I’ll definitely be looking for him in the larger dance world.

Oh, and also, Wade Robson’s group routine from Monday night was just about the best I think I’ve ever seen on that show. Go him.

  1. Yeah, Ferguson was really, really amazing last night. He was phenomenal dancing in his own style, but I thought he carried the foxtrot off last night with quite a bit of panache for someone so unfamiliar with it. I hope he goes a long, long way in this season because it will be so exciting to see what else he's capable of.

  4. Russell is one of my favorites. He dances with heart, soul and swagger.
    I don't believe for a minute that he was bottom 2 either, but at least we got to see him dance his style for his solo!
    That Wade number actually gave me the chills it was so good. Seeing such amazing choreography danced by such stunning dancers on national TV makes me so happy!
    Love Jacob Karr as well.
