We're not sure what's worse: the fact that Deangelo then sings about his arrest ("I'm getting arrested, but I'll be out in a few hours. I get to ride in the front seat! I'm a celebrity!") or that the whole sequence is scored to...read more
The results of Tuesday night's So You Think You Can Dance's Season 9 votes not only surprised the contestants, but the judges as well. Although most people expected Eliana Girard to win it for the girls, few supporters of fellow ballet dancer Chehon Wespi-Tschopp thought he could beat out fan favorite Cyrus Spencer to take home the title for the guys.read more
