I agree that “Sex” was just painful to watch. I mean, you don’t have to be a psychiatrist to connect the Freudian dots when you nickname yourself Sex and bring your mom to the audition. And speaking of mom, I’m sure Sex has won dance awards. I can imagine him showing up at a club and winning some dance contest without realizing that the other patrons are voting for him as a huge joke. Thank goodness Triumph the Insult Dog wasn’t there.
I also didn’t think it was necessary for the judges to be so cruel to some contestants. The clogger, the chick who taught dance, and the little person (who, incidentally, was quite good) come to mind. Just say, “You’re not right for the show.” and let them leave with their dignity.
The popper, the Russians, and those black dudes who could contort their body into poses that defied gravity were very good.
I think Nigel nailed it on the head when he accused the gay guy with 'tude and a mink of coming on just to get his two minutes of fame. He got it. Goodbye.
There’s something vaguely creepy about Nigel Lythgoe. Mia Michaels - I’ll admit that I’m not a fan of her dance style. But I was glad she was lobbying for the little person. Dan was okay until he told that chick that it should be illegal for people like her to teach dance class. That was so uncool.
