Yep - tonight I was in the same room as Nico - the winner of So You Think You Can Dance Canada.
Oh all right - it wasn't exactly a 'room' - more like a huge auditorium. And yes - there were thousands of others in the auditorium too. And no, our seats weren't close to the stage so I'm thinking he didn't notice me in the crowd. But still it was good enough that I'm topping the evening off right with a nice very small glass of White Chocolate Cream Liqueur.
Anyway - it was a GREAT show - despite sitting way to far away. Only other people who followed the show will get the following. They did all my favourite numbers - it seemed each dancer picked my favourite of their single dances. Most of my favourite partner dances they did including The Mirror one with Miles and Lisa, the Dark Angel one with *sigh* Nico and Arassay, the Caprieto with Miles and Nico and a whole bunch more. And they did two of my favourite group routines, In Any Other World - choreographed by Mia Michaels and the Pasa Doble routine that Jean Marc choreographed so I was one happy camper at the end. I wish I could post them again - but alas - they were taken off YouTube.
Although hands down Nico is my favourite, but I was also most surprisingly impressed with Isaak - he was really good.
Wait!!! Because I can multi-task I found some on YouTube -Yippee Skippee
OK - now I'm excited!! They did this number
And this one
And *another sigh* this one
Now this last one is from another show - and my favourite group routine they did all season.
I tried to take a video myself but was sunk 'cause 1) we were too far away and 2) I "um" couldn't figure out how to do it.
And even the girls who never watched SYTYCD Canada were impressed by the show.
And now - it's a work night so I must say farewell - but I had a grand time!
