DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, Eleven, 7.30pm
DANCER No.5075. Even at this point — auditions in LA and Austin, Texas — anyone can see this guy has something. What he does with it (backup dancer for Rihanna?) I don’t know, but he’s the standout tonight. It’s almost at the end
and Mary Murphy and guest judge Minnie Driver huddle as Mary predicts he’ll be top 20. The standard here seems very high. Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell Pritchett from Modern Family) was the guest judge in LA and got to see Nick, the night’s first act, who was part contortionist/part crippling arthritis in 10 years. Jesse’s reaction: I’m going to need a drink after that.
