Of all the action on last night’s So You Think You Can Dance results show (we blogged it here), including the inevitable two eliminations and a performance by David Guetta and Kelly Rowland (oh, look, we’ve blogged them too!), the best may have been the top-12’s military-tight routine to the White Stripes’ “Seven Nation Army.” Watch below (and please ignore Nigel’s scronch face on freeze-frame):
Aside from proving that the song’s electrifying guitar line is one of the most redonkulously danceable riffs ever, it reminds me that one of the things I love about this show is that they use songs as performed by their original artists; the in-house Muzak versions they use on Dancing With the Stars feel both weird and oddly chintzy, like listening to a sad lounge singer at the Radisson.
But you tell us, Music Mixers, what have your favorite pairings of song and dance been on SYTYCD? What current or recent hits would you like to see the remaining top 10 contestants take on?
