This Ain't No Eurovision

People with actual talent competing against each other, imagine that...So You Think You Can Dance. These are genuinely talented dancers competing against genuinely talented dancers. Every week each couple pulls a dance genre out of a hat and are only given three days to master technique and learn the choreography from various style such as rumba, hip hop, contemporary, Bollywood, even Russian folkdance. Some of the dancers are amazing in that they can handle whatever is thrown at them given that they are unfamiliar with the genre.

For example, this Tango is completely flawless! I've never seen a more perfect tango and they're not even ballroom dancers!

A contemporary dance by Mia Micheals. My favorite choreography so far. Sexy, simple, yet so complex.

My fave was the season with Benny (was that his name? I believe so...)
