Season 10 of this show is under way and the top 20 have been chosen. This year’s contestants are maybe not my favorite group ever, but (as per usual) they include three dancers from my home state, which makes it fun to watch. Interestingly, whereas last season included two excellent ballroom dancers from Utah County that happened to be blonde and female and a bit hard to tell apart, this year’s group includes two excellent ballroom dancers from Utah County that happen to be brunette and female and a bit hard to tell apart. What are the odds? Strangely, one of this duo of ballroom babes, Brittany Cherry, was never shown on any episode prior to showing up in the top 20. Conspiracy? You tell me.
This year’s group also includes two animators (a new record) and three tappers (also a record). One of my favorites this year is a street performer named Fikshun who has never had a dance class in his life, but somehow seems to be killin’ it.
The early favorites appear to be Amy Yakima on the girls’ side and probably Tucker Knox for the guys. Are you watching this season? Who are your favorites?
