Ellen DeGeneres to dance with tWitch on 'SYTYCD' finale

Posted on


Image Credit: Kelsey McNeal/Fox; Andrew Eccles/jbgphoto.comYes, it’s happening: On tonight’s So You Think You Can Dance finale, Ellen DeGeneres will recreate injured contestant Alex Wong‘s hip-hop routine with tWitch. The surprise was first reported by Perez Hilton (and now confirmed by Fox and DeGeneres’ publicist). The routine, to “Outta Your Mind” by Lil Jon featuring LMFAO, is considered to be the finest hip-hop routine ever performed on the show, and featured Wong working with his shrink (tWitch) to overcome his ballet baggage so he could hit hard on the Tabitha and Napoleon-choreographed number.

DeGeneres responded to a fan’s prediction that she’d be Wong’s sub with the following Twitter tease last night: “I like it! I wonder if it WILL happen?” This afternoon she followed up with: “#SYTYCD finale tonight. Broke my heart when Alex had to drop out. Tonight, I do something and I hope it makes him smile.”

We can’t wait to see this. What about you?
