So You Think You Can Dance!

Hey people! I’m so excited about the premiere of So You Think You Can Dance tonight!  It’s going to be fun!

I thought that we’d celebrate with ten of my favorite routines from the show!   This isn’t my definitive list, which I think Class and I will have to put together sometime this season.   It’s killing me to leave some routines off, but these were the first 10 11 that came to mind, so that has to mean something right?

But here we go.

Lacey & Danny Samba – Dmitry Chaplin

I had to make sure this was on here.  I love this dance.  Beyond measure.

Hok & Jaimie’s Hummingbird/Flower Dance – Wade Robson

So amazingly beautiful.

Sabra & Dominic’s Hip Hop – Shane Sparks

SQUEE! Love these two!  Love this routine.  So cute.

Donyelle & Benji’s Hip Hop – Shane Sparks

Come on Donyelle!!! And Benji too.

Caitlyn & Pasha’s Samba – Dmitry Chaplin

Random, but I love the songs and she was the only girl that season who could do ballroom worth a damn.

Sasha & Twitch Hip Hop – Christopher Scott

So so so good!!! So much chemistry.

Lauren & Billy Jazz – Mandy Moore

A sweet and goofy routine.  So creative.

Janette & Brandon Jazz – Wade Robson

I miss Wade so much on this show.

Alex & Twitch Hip Hop – Nappytabs

Hate them, love this routine. So much fun.

Jasmine & Comfort Hip Hop – Nappytabs

QUEEN! I live for Jasmine and this was so flawless.  I honestly thought she would win because of this.

Kayla & Kupono  Contemporary – Mia Michaels

So fucking good.  This routine is so powerful.

What are you some of your favorites??  Link us and let’s talk about it!

Which all of our new followers and readers (hey friends!) means that I dig into my well of YouTube playlists for some delightful piece of pop culture from the past.

Do you remember this??

So this is Hitman Sammy Sam.  Unfortunately, our king nor this bop has a Wikipedia page so I will have to remember his career from scratch.

Well…this was it.  But in 2003 or 2004, Hitman Sammy Sam brought us this bop about the tension that can rise from blended families.  Having moved in, our intrepid hero is dealing with having to take care of his lady’s offspring.  The kids are unruly and have irrational wants like food, going to the zoo and playing Uno!

He can’t be expected to deal with all of that!

He lets us know his frustration only to get sass from our teenage co-star and her iconic verse:

“This ain’t yo house no way!” SHUT UP!

Before Nicki Minachos was singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star, the visionary Hitman added “The Itsy Bitsy Spider” to his hit!

KING SHIT!

So I don’t think there’s more to this story.  I don’t know if he released an album or was signed to Cash Money.  Maybe he was a part of Murder Inc??  But at least we have this song to treasure and remember him by!

Do you remember this jam?  What are some of your favorite trashy jams from the past?  Let us know in the comments or over on Twitter at @ClassNTrashShow.

Also, just because, here’s the video for My Baby Daddy.  Just because.
