… is Russell? Wow. Don’t get me wrong. I love me some Russell. Charismatic, adorable, humble and super talented. I looked forward to his performances each week. But Jakob is like… UNFATHOMABLY talented. Boy’s got skills I have never quite seen on this show. I really thought the top two would be Kathryn and Jakob and that Jakob would take home the win. I was wrong.
Then again… Jakob and Kathryn are contemporary dancers and they will probably have an easier time getting jobs and offers from companies with the exposure the show provided them, even without a win… as a krumper, the win is a huge boost to Russell’s lesser-known specialty and will probably allow him to make a career out of dance that he may not have had otherwise.
What do you think, So You Think You Can Dance fans? Did America pick the right dancer?
