Last night, a terrifically talented young dancer named Lauren won “So You Think You Can Dance.” And a terrifically overblown trainwreck named Rachel was voted out of “Big Brother.” To the naked eye, they both look to be at diametrically opposite ends of the talent spectrum — one has it, the other doesn’t. Yet I have enjoyed them both very much.

Top 3, baby, and it’s everybody I wanna see most. The first number is Kent and All-Star Lauren doing Bollywood, and it is such joy…it’s making me remember why I love(d) being a dancer. It might’ve been Nakul Kidman’s best (at least, most entertaining) piece, and it sure was fun to watch. Sure, it was kinda sloppy, but it was athletic, and energetic, and chock full o’ personality. And one can’t discount how strong Kent danced.Â Me likee.
