It was less than two weeks ago that “So You Think You Can Dance” judge Nigel Lythgoe looked me straight in the eye and told me that, between dance favorites Billy Bell and Alex Wong, only one would make this year’s Top 10… which was clearly misleading since both boys are Season 7 finalists, as the show decided to do a Top 11 instead.
And, listen, I wasn’t the only one who was tricked.
Last week, I met up with the aforementioned Top 11 the day after they flew into L.A. and got some one-on-one time with Billy, who said that someone posted my interview with Mr. Lythgoe
on his facebook page and he freaked out, thinking that Alex had been cut.
He immediately called Alex up to ask if he’d made the show and, upon hearing that he did, they were both just confused.
