Bit of a random track to post for the first Musing of the new decade, no?

Well, there’s a reason for it (kind of). I’ve been watching So You Think You Can Dance US for a good few years now (at least until they stopped showing it in the UK) and towards the start of last year I heard there was a SYTYCD UK in the pipeline.

The series has just started on BBC One on Saturday evenings, and so far I’m loving it just as much – the standard of talent is hugely impressive, in styles ranging from hip-hop to contemporary to latin and everything in between and I cannot wait to see how the series develops. This is the track from the opening (auditions) episode that stuck in my mind:

Christina Aguilera – Ain’t No Other Man (we7)

My favourite song of hers, it’s from her 2006 album, Back to Basics, and was the lead track from that record.

So You Think You Can Dance UK

I also thought I’d link to some videos of my favourite routines from SYTYCD US:

Lacey & Cameron (Season 3, Contemporary)
Sabra & Dominic (Season 3, Hip Hop)
Sabra & Neil (Season 3, Jazz)
Ivan & Allison (Season 2, Hip Hop)
Hok & Jamie (Season 3, Jazz)

and my favourite:

Heidi & Travis (Season 2, Comtemporary)

Early days yet for SYTYCD UK but I reckon we’ll get some amazing performances out of it…so far I’m rooting for Tommy & Charlie, and here’s their routine from last night:

Tommy & Charlie (UK Season 1, Hip-Hop)

I want to see them krump!
