    woohoo This is the one show that I actually don't mind watching the auditions. Sure, they have clunkers who audition, but the variety of dancing is usually enough to keep me interested.

    I'm guessing "strange hair girl" might be the choreographer Sonya Tayeh. I see no reason why they would exclude her work this season, unless she's really busy. Maybe someone more connected in the contemporary world knows.

    Alex Wong was not in Vegas. There's some speculation that he might be on the show as a guest All Star.

    Around audition time, I saw an interview with Alex that said he felt about 85% back. So he wouldn't have been ready for the grueling competition schedule under his technical standards. It would make sense for him to give up the idea and be an All Star or to wait and do it again next summer.
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    I would love Alex to be an All-Star at a later date, not in the competition again. he was fantastic and it's unfortunate what happened, but I want to have all new people competing this season

    Hmm not me. I'd love to see Alex compete again. If there are dancers better than him, then they'll rise to the occasion, but he deserves another shot IMO.

    You picked a good couple of seasons to miss

    I'm so excited about tonight! LOVE having the DWTS finale and SYTYCD premier in the same week!

    Agree with you. Even though I love Alex, 3 times makes it more the Alex show than SYTYCD.

    Ah, didn't realize he had already had 2 chances. I only remembered last season.

    ETA: NM I remember there was some contractual conflict before wasn't there?

    Also I'm all in favor of an Alex show (not on SYTYCD, but a show of his own )

    I'd rather think that strange hair girl was the girl who had the ball of hair on top of her head, and then was asked to let it down.

    Alex reportedly was at the "up-fronts" for SYTYCD, so hopefully we'll see him as an all-star later in the season.

    I would much rather see Alex as a contestant again because as an all-star he would be pigeonholed into doing just his own style. We would never get to see a performance like the hip hop with Twitch. We wuzrobbed of seeing him do any Latin or ballroom yet.

    I LOVED having Allison back last year but it was a shame we did not get to see her doing other styles. She had picked up ballroom pretty well in her season already and then I read she actually toured with one of Louis van Amstel's shows. I don't want to miss out on that sort of thing with Alex because he strikes me as very versatile.

    I selfishly would love to see Alex dance in a variety of styles and the more I saw him, the better. But that was a very serious injury, and the competition can be grueling - I'd also like him not to take any chances that might hinder a full recovery.
