Tyce Diorio rocks!

As I happily bummed around my apartment on Saturday in preparation for my second first marathon :P, I was happy to discover that MTV was running a marathon of its own - of Season 2 of So You Think You Can Dance! (i.e. the Benji / Travis season)

I got to see some of my favorite performances including Ivan and Allison's contemporary piece to Why by Annie Lennox. (This is the one where Allison is wearing a black slip dress and Ivan is wearing black button down and pants.) This whole time I thought that had been a Mia Michaels piece but no, it was actually choreographed by Tyce Diorio!

You know, I think he might be my favorite all around choreographer because he can do pieces like that plus all his fun Broadway ones, like Benji and Donyelle's Hairspray, Shauna and Jimmy's Ease on Down the Road, the group Lion King, etc.

My least favorite? Dan Karaty. He is so generic and boring compared to all the other choreographers. He typically choreographs "pop" routines, which is described as hip hop with jazz elements or something like that.

Anyway, there was this school kid routine he did with Lacey and Kameron this season to Fergie. Lacey was this sassy girl and Kameron was chasing her around. Well, it turns out that he pretty much copied this routine from one he did last season with Natalie and Musa to Nelly Furtado's Promiscuous.

I don't even like him as a judge, either. I don't feel like he gives any good, solid feedback, just criticizes them. I think he is just jealous of the dancers. heehee
