Alexa Anderson Advances on So You Think You Can Dance

by at . Comments

A total of 35 hopefuls advanced from Las Vegas on So You Think You Can Dance last night.

But the two-hour episode really boiled down to Alexa Anderson.

The judges initially singled out Alexa - a Season 8 contestant who fell just short of the Top 20 - for not connecting during a routine, with Adam Shankman telling her: "We’re debating putting you through because you are dead... Dance like you want it, honey."

Later on - incredibly! - Anderson tried again and blew the panel away with her emotion and enthusiasm. It was almost as if the show planned out the entire arc!

“This child could win,” Debbie Allen said during Alexa’s solo, while Nigel Lythgoe agreed, telling the now-bubbly blonde: "You’ve got a little star by your name."


I have the exact opposite opinion of you Missy. I think if she makes it far into the competition it will be because she's talented and because she has a really beautiful movement quality as a dancer (and it's a style of contemporary that is interesting, not the same old lyrical we've seen time and time again). If she doesn't make it far into the competition then it will be because the show is just a popularity contest.


Sorry, Missy, but you're terribly wrong. This girl can and WILL win. She is an INCREDIBLY talented girl and she's going until the end. Mark my words. This girl is truly a star.


That child is not going to win. She'll be gone by round three. My prediction. And if she does win or places high, it will join the ranks of DWT has-beens as a popularity contest. Don't let this happen, SYTYCD!!
