Melanie and Marko’s stilted disco routine on last night’s So You Think You Can Dance performance finale really bummed me out. “Oh nooooooooo. DISCO,” I shuddered. I’d forgotten all about it. Must disco still exist? For contestants looking to gain last-minute momentum, the disco seems as death-kissy as the dreaded foxtrot or, God forbid, a Russian nesting doll dance or whatever. “Has anyone EVER liked a disco routine on #SYTYCD? Die die die!” I tweeted feverishly, for I had just scraped up the last of my spicy gouda party spread directly from a small stone plate with my teeth.

Thanks to some of my loyal Twitter pals for reminding me of former disco fabulousness and proving me wrong!

Lauren, Danielle, Shelley, and Josh called out Janette and Brandon’s season 5 routine as “the high mark for disco on the show. YouTube it, I promise,” said Josh.

Check out the big brain on Josh!

Meanwhile, Jessica, Kassy, and Brett remembered Neil Haskell’s “pimpin’ blue suit” the best. Interesting: Not one of these three mentioned his season 3 disco partner. (It was Sara.)

And here’s Melanie and Marko from last night. I’m still so not into it, which sucks because I am very into both of them in general.

Do you want disco routines to stick around in future seasons, or are they getting to be too much of a downer/joke?

I say if they MUST drag it out next time, the least they could do is set that s— to Kylie Minogue’s “Your Disco Needs You.” I mean hello.
