I Got You

In years past, I used to blog pretty regularly about So You Think You Can Dance. I had review posts of the show. I've seen a live taping. I even went to the tour a couple years ago. And then they had it on straight from summer and in the fall season, and it was just too much. I liked it as my summer show because there wasn't much else on, and I liked leaving it there. Plus, having it back-to-back like that was just overkill for me. I saw a few last summer, but not much more. I don't even know who won.

I wouldn't quite say I'm back all the way into it, but I do still really enjoy the show. I think it's so fun, the dancers are so impressive, and I just love dance as an art form and as an athletic sport. There is so much to it, and so much expression that comes through it.

Anyway, this past Wednesday had one routine that really impressed me. I watched it again just a minute ago and it still gives me chills every time I watch it. I'm a sucker for the lyrical hip hop routines that Napoleon and Tabitha come up with, and I just loved the concept for this one, the dancers, and the music. It takes a lot to have a stand-out performance because you need the right intersection between all of those factors. Plus, Melanie is just adorable. Lots of impressive dancers this season. I think this one got it:

It's awesome, right? I just love that one. I'll probably even watch it again once I'm done writing this.

Well, this is me signing off for the weekend. Time to head back to California for Summer Christmas, catch a ball game, some beach time, and hang out with some of the people that I love most in this whole world. I'm so excited for it.

I probably will have one more post coming this weekend in honor of the 4th because I have been reading some interesting articles related to our country's military, so maybe check back in a few.

Oh, and I better give a shout out to Canada day. Lots of great things happening this weekend. Have a great holiday, dear ones!

WOW!!! Seriously, that was amazing. I've never really watched that show... maybe I should start.
