On this week’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance — the 200th ever might I add — we’re finally introduced to this season’s Top 20. We’re also introduced to the adjudicating styles of princess of quirk, Zooey Deschanel, who looked lovely but in all honesty, had little to add to the panel. And Nigel, in SYTYCD’s constant attempt to change up the show, dropped the very big news that there will be not one but two winners this season! Now there’s no need to choose between your top guy and girl, you can have your cake and eat it too!
Here are the top five moments from this week’s episode of So You Think You Can Dance:
1. Team Ballroom makes it through — Throughout the whole competition thus far, one of the main concerns has been whether ballroom dancers and besties Whitney Carson and Lindsay Arnold would both make the show. And with their matching wavy blonde hair and tanned skin, they could easily pass for twins. They draw out the suspense, bringing both girls in at the same time and calling Whitney’s named first. But even the judges couldn’t split up these two hot tamales and the pair strutted their stuff right into the Top 20 with a fiery ballroom routine.
2. The baseball routine — Read more…
Last night I didn’t intend to watch So You Think You Can Dance but then they sucked me in like they always do and were CRUEL to me. My cry count ended up being a whopping three and I felt the tears coming at other points in the night too.
One of my shameless cry-fests happened when 29-year-old mother and dancer Bree Hafen auditioned for the judges. Of course, she retold her touching story about putting dance on the back burner while she was raising her two beautiful children. Although she feels guilty, she decided to take some time to realize her true potential [cue violins].
That had me going already, but then Nigel had to go and invite her two adorable kids to the judging panel so they could properly watch their mom perform and cheer for her while she danced to Ingrid Michaelson’s “So What.”
I’m not done. After they handed her a plane ticket to Las Vegas they let her two-year-old toddler dance on stage and she was beyond ADORBZ. She wore a pink tutu and made pretty much everyone cry, including Mary Murphy and Lil C (well, Lil C on the inside). It’s G-rated, Hallmark entertainment at its best.

These dogs are living the “pug life.” Better known as the BonePugz, the canine rappers are super cute… I mean gangster. The group is made up of five pugs: Nigel, Coco, Lulu, Baker and Perfect. Look at them with their hoods up and their sunglasses on. They’re so gangster. D’aw.
